The project of the Centre for Theatre Research titled Theatre Walks aims at creating a web and mobile application containing seven theme-based routes, or circuits (theatre, theatre education, important locations, cafés and pubs, art sights, commemorative buildings, important city personalities) in ten Slovak towns (Bratislava, Sobotište, Trnava, Nitra, Martin, Banská Bystrica, Zvolen, Liptovský Mikuláš, Košice and Prešov) which were known for their vibrant theatre life in the past. Users will be able to easily acquire a lot of detailed information about particular theatre centres and/or places with active artistic life or a historical theatre personality.
International Research Colloquium “Czech and Slovak Mutuality in Professional Theatre and Dance II”
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Czechoslovak Republic, the Centre for Theatre Research is organizing a research colloquium under the working title Czech and Slovak Mutuality in Professional Theatre and Dance II., It will take place on 25 and 26 October 2018 in the seminar hall of the University Library in Bratislava and will feature scholarly theatrological contributions addressing the issue of Czecho-Slovak theatre relations from the period following the separation of the country.
The international colloquium is part of the research project “Czech and Slovak Mutuality in Professional Theatre”, which includes research on art production in theatre after 1993 with an emphasis on the work of Czech theatremakers in Slovakia and Slovak theatremakers in the Czech Republic.
The first stage of the event was an international colloquium organized on 3 and 4 November 2016 in Studio 12 in Bratislava. It offered a broadly conceived panel discussion aimed at mapping Czecho-Slovak theatre relations after 1993.
Because the focal point of the work of Slovak theatremakers is in the Czech Republic and vice versa – due to the fact that contemporary Czech artists, mostly directors and visual artists, are regularly hosted by Slovak theatres – the main objective of the planned theatrological meeting will be to address the issue in question and discuss its impact on the current development of Slovak and Czech culture, including the reflection of the work of individual artists.
Contributions to the colloquium will be published in a proceedings whose publication has already been included in the publishing plan of the Theatre Institute for 2019.
