How the Estates Theatre became part of the National Theatre
In Czech, surtitles in German, English
A theatre building would be a surprising object of a national upheaval at any place but for Prague, in a country where the Czechs and Germans had lived together for ages and where the theatre was a place of fundamental political struggles. In her theatrical research, Petra Tejnorová and her production team follow from an infamous and little-known event when an enraged crowd took over the Estates Theatre and expelled the German ensemble, its then tenants, in November 1920.
The project presents a portrayal of one specific building and one specific event in a couple of images and contributions written by historians, lawyers, and theatre professionals. A happening on site, at the place of remembrance – at the Estates Theatre.
