Against the Wall / Proti múru!
The long awaited premiere of Antigone has just took place at the Slovak National Theatre. The direction of Sophocles' tragedy was in hands of director Ondrej Spišák, whose work is quite familiar to the festival audience.
The Festival as a Platform for Cultivation of Opinions
We decided to noticeably broaden the “communication between the audience and the stage” with regards to its popularity among last year’s festival goers based on a number of positive reactions. The newest edition of the festival will provide discussions about all the productions in the main programme!
Congrats to Tereza!
Tereza Dočkalová was awarded the Thalia Award for an Outstanding Performance for her role of Nora in the Ibsen drama Nora (A Doll's House) by Divadlo pod Palmovkou theatre at the ceremony yesterday.
And we are all the more happy that we will feature this production directed by Jan Nebeský at our festival on Friday 18 May!
Actors in the Roles of Musicians
We are finalising an interesting music programme in cooperation with friends from Druhý domov café, who are going to run their bar at the festival circus tent. Look out for a number of interesting concerts and DJ sets!

Against the Wall!
The emblem and characteristic trait of the Flora Theatre Festival is its clear dramaturgical definition. This year's festival motto is “Against the Wall” (“Gegen die Wand” in German and “Proti zdi” in Czech).
