We are looking for performance artists who are interested to work with the local community.
Divadlo na cucky is a professional independent theatre located in Olomouc, Czech Republic. In our original works we focus on current societal issues and themes. We regularly offer residencies for Czech and international artists, in fields of theatre and performance art. We are now looking to support interactive projects that will strengthen the connections among us, international artists and the local public.
