Theatre Night online: Videoconference to Connect Theatres in the Czech Republic for 8 Hours

The 8th Theatre Night will take place on Saturday, 21 November 2020 in a significantly different form than in the previous years. The theatres will connect with their viewers only via online platforms. The title of the event Sustain-Long-Ability has become even more pressing than the organizers expected in the first place due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. The Theatre Night puts together 64 theatres from 17 towns and municipalities in the Czech Republic. The year’s edition features a 8-hour-long videoconference Theatre Has and Will Be Here (For the Whole Day Today) coordinated by the Arts and Theatre Institute. The 9-hour-long programme with live streams and pre-recorded shows will virtually connect 28 theatres from 9 towns. The complete theatre programme is available on www.nocdivadel.cz.

The topic of this year’s edition - sustain-long-ability – had been chosen before the pandemic crisis as a response to the growing interest in ecology and the pressure on the sustainability of life on Earth. The ecological topics in artistic production and theatre operation have been accompanied by existential topics. The programmes of the theatres that must be closed for the public now feature virtual tours, live streams, interactive education plays for children and adults.
