2020 Flora moves to November
We firmly believe we will be able to welcome talented Czech and Slovak theatre and dance performers and German musicians in Olomouc during the week from 10 to 16 November 2020. The week-long programme, with an unconventional trip to our friends at HaDivadlo, Brno, will be framed by the festival motto “Beautiful New World”. The festival programme will be gradually revealed over the summer months and ticket sales should be launched in early autumn. Hopefully by that time most of the cultural programme will be back to normal – go to theatres and support them!
Dear friends, colleagues and partners,
In light of the current situation, it seems inappropriate to announce the festival programme, start advertising and selling advance tickets and engage you in tasks which are no longer a priority due to the circumstances.
We have therefore decided to move the May edition of the festival to another date and are working on making it possible for us to meet at Flora in November 2020.Let’s be open-minded, compassionate, sensitive and patient.Thank you.
A riveting production by the Berliner Ensemble closed the record-breaking programme of the 23rd Flora Theatre Festival
“Nico Holonics excelled in the adaptation of Grass’ Tin Drum for two hours and the audience did not want him to stop acting”, reported Jan H. Vitvar, journalist of the weekly Respekt, from Olomouc on Sunday evening.
9 Tage wach through the eyes of Lukáš Horký
The 9 Tage wach / 9 Days Awake production of the Staatsschauspiel Dresden opened the 23rd Flora Theatre Festival on Wednesday 15th May at the Moravské divadlo theatre.
Please excuse the programme change caused by technical and logistic issues. We will present a production entitled TWO by the South Korean dance group Lee K. Dance instead of the TAIL LANGUAGE production on Friday 17 May at 4.30 pm in S-klub. The morning workshop on Saturday 18 May will be led by Lee Kyung-eun, the choreographer and artistic director of Lee K. Dance, instead of Kim Bora.
The “face” underneath the mask
The most exposed “persona” of the 23 Flora is the renowned performer and original author Lucie Trmíková, who has – after Stefanie Reinsperger, Stanislav Majer and Miloslav König – become the face of this year’s festival visuals and “borrowed her voice as well as stylised gesture” to the festival video and audio spot.
Music evenings in the festival tent
Flora Theatre Festival – that is not only theatre productions but also informal atmosphere at the evening “meeting point” in festival tent at the Palacký University courtyard at Konvikt. Almost every evening (except for Sundays) there will be some music programme full of unique concerts and DJs… and parties!
