History of Slovak Theatre
The Centre for Theatre Research is in charge of creating and publishing new, synthetic history of Slovak theatre. It should be a collective work written by eminent authors. The ambition of full-time employees at the Theatre Institute and their part-time colleagues is to publish a two-volume book titled History of Slovak Theatre that would reflect on the development of Slovak theatre culture from its beginnings until 2000.
The publication should provide the reader with a focused and clear picture of the development tendencies in Slovak theatre art performed on professional stages, and offer adequate social and historical context.
History of Slovak Theatre will be published in two parts, or volumes (covering the periods 1920–1948 and 1949–2000), and will present facts- and theory-based reflection on the historical development of Slovak theatre. The book will explain theatrological phenomena in a more comprehensive and broader social-cultural context.
