Product description: kolektiv autorů - Divadelní ústav 1959-2009
This publication marks the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Theatre Institute in Prague. The main part of the publication is a list of publications issued by the institute and exhibitions organised or co-organised by the institute. An important contribution to the history of the Theatre Institute and the history of Czech theatre arts is the paper by Jana Patočková titled ‘From the History of the Theatre Institute’, in which the author focuses on the circumstances surrounding the emergence of the Theatre Institute, describes its foundation and the administrative and legal difficulties that involved, and looks at its early work. The publication also contains interviews with individuals who were a part of the institute’s history, in particular the institute’s first employees, and people who worked for the institute for a long period of time and had an influence on its development. Their recollections testify to the amount of expert work the institute performed, but also to its ambivalent stance towards the previous regime. The institute’s more recent history is covered in interviews with the individuals who have served as the institute’s director since 1989.
