Jistebnice, 391 33
- A quiet countryside. Only occasionally a car, time to time a sound of neighbour’s circular saw. The theatre hall in our barn smells of a new wood floor, light seeps through the cracks of the boards. A refuge from heat and space for generation of ideas. We offer an artist residency in a small settlement Stružinec in the region of Tábor, 4 km from a charming little town of Jistebnice. There is the Jistebnice Highlands Nature Park nearby (woods, meadows, and pastures) with groves, stone partial walls, and old trees. Stružinec by Tábor is a small village with only eight houses and sweet neighbours. We respect each other; good relationship with our neighbours matters to us.
STUDIOS / REHEARSAL ROOMS:
- A hall (8 × 6.5 m) in a former barn with new waxed wood floor. There is no heating. The space does not have equipment nor theatre lighting.
