Showcase S-HOW & T-ELL
Part of the symposium is an evening presentation S-how & T-ell: The participants will talk about their creative work in short, 7 minute long presentations (for instance 14 images and 30 seconds to describe each image). We choose presenters mainly from artistic fields, for this part of the symposium, so they can informally present their finished or unfinished scenographic works. Aim of the presentation is to get to know the works of young artists with distinctive and creative approach and unique sources of inspiration.
The reason of organizing the S-how & T-ell presentation in the evening of the symposium is the attempt to actively connect the theoreticians and practitioners of theatre (mainly scenographic) arts. Other than representatives of the V4 countries and Germany, the focus is mainly set on Czech scenographers and theoreticians (professionals and students).
