Brno has always been a Mecca for Czech theatre. The Janacek Academy, Masaryk University, Conservatoire: three schools as three basic roots supply dozens of theatre ensembles with vital creative energy. There are almost all types of theatre buildings in our city, which is quite unique, and all possible genres of theatre have developed in our city for a long time. Where else in Central Europe but in Brno should a world show of theatre thinking, opinions and activities be held? And how else can the efforts of artists from the whole world be presented than through such a festival? Brno deserves such a festival and world theatre deserves its Brno!

Director of the Centre for Experimental Theatre

Vlastimil Peška

Director of the Puppet Theatre Radost

Joy (the name of the theatre Radost means „joy“ in English). What a simple and apt word, which I – as a director of the Puppet Theatre Radost – want to use to welcome and at the same time celebrate the festival Theatre World Brno, which will take place for the first time this year.

It is truly joyful that after several years of discussions and incredibly tenacious efforts to get financial means, the dream of Brno‘s theatrical community about a common, representative festival can come true. This should be enjoyed above all by the whole City of Brno.

What awaits us during the first year of the festival? I must admit myself I am filled with intense expectations as to how we will succeed in making the first steps. Our festival is literally a baby, which during its first years will have to learn to walk and finally grow up to become a unique individual.

Although the whole festival management hopes that even the first year of the festival will be “world-class”, I think that experience must be gathered first. This will be even more joyful since it will move us at least a milestone in our desire to organize a unique theatre festival. I do hope that within several years Theatre World Brno will really become a prestigious, first- rate festival. I am truly convinced about that.

To the festival I wish a lot of satisfied spectators. And to them I wish a lot of great and exceptional experiences not only in the auditoriums of theatres but also in Brno‘s streets and parks, where some of the events will take place.

Finally I can only wish good luck to all the nine festival days and evenings filled with extraordinary theatrical experiences.

Sylvie Pospíšilová

Director of the Theatre World Festival

June is usually not very generous as far as theatrical performances are concerned. Seasonal series are getting near their end and repertory performances are repeated for true theatregoers or for art-loving tourists. Thus the Muse is forgotten, while the first tourists start arriving in half-empty seaside resorts where they try to make up for the lack of sun. Students are buried in their textbooks and the lucky and clever ones set out for adventurous tours across Europe.

However, my dear Brno townsmen, this year I will give you some good advice: Don´t leave town before 20th June, because things unprecedented and unique will take place here. Every day there will be a choice of several theatrical events. Just choose a favourite genre and off you go to one of Brno`s theatres. If you are not a fan of traditional theatre, you can go to Náměstí Svobody (the main square) and let yourself drawn into the whirl of conjurers, jugglers, masked figures and stilt-walkers. Mr. Vaněk will visit Spilberk Castle and a protagonist of the opening performance on the castle courtyard will be – paradoxically, in accordance with the motto of the festival – a pig.

To stubborn film-lovers we offer films connected with Václav Havel; there will be exhibitions, workshops, discussion meetings, concerts and other entertaining pastimes.

And who says Brno is a boring town!
