Transformation of the festival scenes


The experiences of this year's Flora still resonate with us. Once again, its programme took place on a variety of Olomouc stages – not only in theatres, but also in venues that we adapted specifically for festival purposes. A big thank you for your helpfulness and commitment to everyone who made this transformation possible! And what makes us most happy – your audience interest…

In Moravské divadlo, where seven festival productions were held, often only less comfortable seats with poorer visibility remained vacant. In the other venues, the capacity had to be increased several times. Both sold-out premieres of The Dance of the Dervishes and Tereza Lenerová's workshop took place in Divadlo na cucky.

The S-klub was transformed beyond recognition by our technical team – the adapted multifunctional theatre hall allowed us to stage a record ten performances with a variety of stage design challenges – there was a giant test tube in TANK, a slanted surface in Jocasta, a passable variable stage in Invisible II, an interactive space defined by the audience in SOFT SPOT, a classic peephole in The History of Violence as well as other different approaches to theatre space. The facilities for the ensembles, made available by the Dramacentrum – Sdružení D, located on the floor above the S-klub, also contributed to the smooth running of the event.

In both buildings of the Museum of Art in Olomouc we situated productions that transcended the boundaries of theatre towards the visual arts – in the Museum of Modern Art it was the site-specific Figuring Age and the theatre installation The Kids Are Alright, and in the Archdiocesan Museum, it was Susanne Kennedy's virtual project I AM (VR).

In the Palacký University Art Centre (Konvikt), Flora took place in three venues: the K3 Theatre was captivated by the Stand Up Down talk show, the Film Hall was used for the FloraLab seminar and the courtyard was occupied by the festival tent – the traditional festival stage for discussions with the creative teams and evening concerts and DJ parties with a detached bar from the Vertigo club. Berlin-based musician Kid Be Kid mesmerized the packed Jazz Tibet Club. And we can reveal that the songwriter also checked out the concert wing at Corpus Christi Chapel the day after, courtesy of Palacký University Art Centre, and spontaneously shot a short video there that she will post soon.

We still have much to look forward to – 26 Flora still resonates…!
