Popis produktu: Theater der Zeit spezial Tschechien
The special edition of magazine Theater der Zeit, which is dedicated to Czech theatre, appears in a year in which the Czech Republic celebrates anniversaries for a number of events that loom large in its history: the foundation of Czechoslovakia in 1918 and the Munich Agreement of 1938 which wiped the country off the map again for a number of years, the Communist Putsch of 1948 by which Czechoslovakia became part of the Eastern Bloc behind the Iron Curtain ofr forty years, the Soviet occupation of 1968 and finally the establishment of the Czech Republic in 1993 - 25 years ago.
The destiny of Czech
theatre always reflected the destiny of the Bohemian lands, which is
hardly surprising. What is unusual, however, is the degree to whch Czech
theatre has influenced the history and the political development of the
country, starting with the process of national emancipation in the 18th
and 19th centuries up to the Velvet Revolution of 1989 whem theatre
fulfilled a vital socio-political function and a world-famous playwright
was installed as the country's head of state.
Although this edition focuses largly on the current state of contemporary Czech theatre and introduces its key protagonists, historical reflections inevitably figure as well, skteching the lines along which theatre culture has developed, which coincide with political fault lines.
The TdZ Spezial was produced in collaboration with the journal Czech Theatre, which has been published in English since 1991 and offers information on key events in the Czech theatre world. It is published by Institut umění - Divadelní ústav (Arts and Theatre Institute, ATI) in Prague.
