30 years of Czech Theatre

In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Prague 6’s Dejvické Divadlo theatre is hosting a series of special events this month. The theatre has held a focus on contemporary theatre both foreign and domestic, while including works from the 20th century’s literary canon. This has been maintained throughout a series of transformations in its core ensemble and the building itself. On Tuesday, the theatre presented a comedy evening of improvisation with the famous actress, and one of the main ensemble members, Simona Babčáková.

Since 1996, the ensemble has gradually evolved to include a variety of actors and artists from outside the DAMU community.
The venue hosts hundreds of people everyday, and contributes to a thriving independent and state-owned theatre community.
