„What artwork did you find interesting in the past few months“
“Recently I was surprisingly touched by the exhibition Gott my life (about the carrier of Karel Gott), where I went basically unintentionally and by accident. After the visit, I am returning to the topic of commercialism, adoration of idols and various types of viewers and target groups, that an artist and his work addresses.”
„What does today’s scenography mean to you?“
„For me, contemporary theatre is a tool for criticizing and reflecting on today’s society. Scenography is one of the main means of expression that is decisive for the performance. Nowadays, as theater has reached a stage that could be called post postmodern, it is difficult to find new forms of expression that would not be based only on an empty concept. Contemporary stage design is therefore a search for these new forms of expression. „
