Bold, unique, avant-garde, unconventional, a break from Classical – all of these can be used to describe contemporary theater and experimental theaters in Prague. In the capital city there is a range of theaters that present contemporary shows, shows complete with non-verbal and verbal stories presented with dance, music and interesting visuals. Experimental theater groups often focus on site-specific art projects created for specific space and time where space plays the most important element and tool in the whole performance. Here at Prague-Stay we are presenting to you small theaters with intimate atmosphere, less conventional theaters, as well as experimental theaters in Prague. Such venue is for example A Studio Rubín or Divadlo Černá labuť (Black Swan Theater) whose premises can host only a small number of spectators. One of the less conventional theaters is the Disk Student Theater, the home stage of DAMU (Theatre Faculty), where you can see performances by young authors and admire future Czech movie and theater stars. Unique theater projects are also to be seen at the Alfred ve dvoře Theater (Alfred in the Courtyard) whose theater pieces present an alternative to classical theaters. Modern dance and dance theater by Czech and foreign performers will please you at the Ponec Theater. Also Činoherní klub and the Archa Theater are less conventional theaters focusing on modern theater plays. Foreigners will certainly appreciate the English subtitles that accompany theater performances at the Švandovo divadlo.
