During this creative process, all instructors will be available for artistic consultation. Besides this main program, all participants will be able to attend the exclusive lectures.

Here are some feedbacks from our participants:
“Coming here taught me an entirely different approach to devised theatre. It’s a calm environment, with no pressure, and allows freedom of creativity.”
Millie Done, BA student in Goldsmiths University of London
“Those magical 2 weeks in Prague was such a life-changer; I got to do what I love the most in a fully-equipped, professional theatre, devise a beautiful performance with some of the loveliest people and had the chance to learn from and befriend some of the most inspirational people I have ever encountered. It taught me that theatre has the power to change the world in small but powerful moments, and a step at a time, in time; it reaffirmed my belief in social-specific theatre and all its wonders. It gave me back my purpose and drive, which I will forever be thankful for!”
Rebecca Goh, BA student in Royal Holloway, University of London
“I would recommend this summer school to everyone that is interested in documentary and also political theatre. I think that this place helps to understand many things about that. Actually, to everyone who wants to break free from the classical form of theatre. Even if you don’t want to work with site-specific theatre on community projects, it still helps to get an inspiration to be more creative, see more, listen.”
Linda Rudene, BA student in Latvian Academy of Culture
“So lucky to meet many creative and lovely classmates. Love this summer school!”
Murong Wang, MA student in Shanghai Theatre Academy
“A brilliant opportunity for any artist! Challenging and inspiring – lots of ideas to further develop current projects and ideas for new ones, I've gone back and gone straight into projects with excitement and determination. Met incredible artists working in Archa and participants of the summer school. Loved it, thanks so much for an inspirational two weeks.”
Fionnuala Kennedy, Theatre-maker, Ireland
Contents of the Main Ateliers
Jana Svobodová: The Viewpoints technique and textual sources of documentary theatre
My atelier will focus on fundamental reasons for stage action.
We will examine this topic from two perspectives:
1. Perspective of physical presence on stage based on the Viewpoints technique.
2. Perspective of deriving and using a text for an action.
Through spatial improvisation and interviews, students will cultivate the ability of "extreme listening" as the basic impetus of artistic creation.
This work will steer students to see their presence on stage from the position of the performer, the author, the dramaturge, and the viewer.
Jan Burian: Music and sound as an integral part of stage action
In my atelier, we will focus on:
• Listening, hearing, and paying attention as the 3 basic approaches to the sound design of a performance.
• Different ways of musical creation and different roles of music and sound in creative theatrical process.
• Recording and processing of audio material.
• Selection of appropriate technical means according to the needs of a particular theatre event and according to the artist's abilities.
• Searching for a distinctive musical language.
The atelier is designed for both beginners and advanced learners. Musical or technical knowledge is not a prerequisite.
Jaroslav Hrdlička: Stage-focused video and multimedia
In my atelier, I will focus on the use of video in the context of theatrical work. We will proceed from recording to processing and presentation of video on stage. I will develop this technical foundation further with each student separately. My goal is to broaden students’ multimedia knowledge focusing on what they consider useful for their work. I will emphasize a diversity of resources and approaches, but we will also focus on ease of execution and easy grasp of the topic. It is my aim to give students an overview of the possibilities of multimedia in theatre, for them to be able to understand it and thus to think more easily about its use.
My atelier will also include artistic disciplines such as live drawing on stage using a tablet, use of live cameras, use of projector as a light source, VJ-ing, video mapping, programming, animation, synchronization, effects, magic, illusions, etc.
Philipp Schenker: Objects in the context of personal story
We are surrounded by many different kinds of objects every day. We use many of them regularly, some only on special occasions. They are an important part of our life and become our partners.
Some objects can be part of our daily rituals, some can be objects of worship, some can be tied up with our memories, and some might be just found on the street, as they lost their original function.
In my class I want to explore with you how these different kinds of objects are connected with our or other people's life stories. We will explore by different forms of stage actions what stories they can tell, how we can transform their use and meaning, and how we can use them for very different kinds of activities on stage.
We will search for the metaphor that an object can express in relation to the story, the space, and the personal presence.
Pavel Kotlík: Light as a space for action
This atelier focusing on the specific use of light in theatre will complement the ateliers The Viewpoints technique and textual sources of documentary theatre and Objects in the context of personal story ateliers. Pavel Kotlík introduces the principles of light design in the context of working with space, text, movement, and object. Each student will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the technical principles of light design, after which they will create their own lighting plan.
Zuzana Sýkorová: Dancing with reality - Body movement in social-specific theatre
The focus of this atelier will be the communication between body and major components of theatrical work. To investigate the communication with space, we will raise awareness regarding our static and kinetic postural habits and work on correcting the habits that might block this communication. Another important part of this atelier will be discovering the conversation between body on stage and audience. Regarding this, we will work on the meaning of posture and gesture with regard to the concept of “intention”.

As the director of the famous Dogtroep, he produced various projects all around the world. During his period, the Dogtroep focused on working in "living locations where social friction can be felt“. Not in abandoned factories but at places holding stories of people who live and work there, where current social, economic and moral issues come to the surface. Such projects were created and performed for example in prison in Bruges or the inland border crossing in the Passengers Terminal Amsterdam. In the last five years he has created an art organization and a network of artists who are interested in participative and collaborative art practices, in rural and urban areas. Starting point for this project is the unacceptable fact that many people in our society -especially on the countryside- are unheard and unseen. A vision he shares with Archa Theatre. In his work he enthusiastically quotes the writer John Berger: "Listening is an active act".
Ondřej Hrab is the director of Archa Theatre. He graduated from the University of Economics in Prague, and in the following years he worked as a sociologist.

Burian Theatre in Prague, transforming this traditional repertory theatre into a contemporary cultural centre under the name “Archa Theatre”. Since Archa Theatre’s opening in 1994, he has continued to introduce contemporary performing arts to the Czech Republic, bringing renowned international artists to the country, and also developing Archa’s own cross-genre artistic projects. He has also been an active member of various national and European councils and groups that work on the topic of cultural exchange and networks.
