Theatre Day and Night publication
20. 11. 2021
On the occasion of the ninth edition of the event, a Czech-English publication Theatre Day and Night is published. The book offers a look back at the past years of the event in photographs and texts. The publication is available in the PROSPERO e-shop for CZK 219 and will be available for purchase at the ATI Information Centre (Celetná 17, Prague 1) and in various theatres during the Theatre Night.
“We have prepared a look back at the past years of the Night of Theatres as a thank you for the immeasurable energy that hundreds of theatregoers and thousands of spectators have put into this project. It was a great challenge for us to put the biggest theatre festival in the Czech Republic and one of the biggest theatre events in Europe into one book. But I firmly believe that we have succeeded in capturing the whole event in its remarkable scope and diversity in the book Theatre by Day and by Night,” adds Martina Pecková Černá from the ATI, which has been coordinating the event since 2013.
This bilingual Czech-English publication offers Czech and international readers a look back at seven years of Theatre Night, coordinated in the Czech Republic by the Arts and Theatre Institute as part of European Theatre Night since 2013. Through word and image, its pages will transport you back to the exceptional programmes and experiences of the country’s biggest theatrical celebration, from its beginnings in 2013 to the final pre-pandemic edition in 2019. You’ll learn about the other countries where European Theatre Night regularly takes place and how it came into being and discover the themes that have united individual Theatre Nights in the Czech Republic, along with how the event is structured for its organisers and visitors. The main part of the publication offers information about the most active theatres associated with Theatre Night, a rich selection of photos that capture the atmosphere of the event and other useful information about the Cezch performing arts scene.
