  • Obsah kurzu závisí na výběru konkrétního odborníka, který v daném semestru katedru navštíví.
  • Visual Dramaturgy, the Geo-cultural and Space in Postmodern Theatre Lecture (recorded lecture, reading, watching recorded performance, analysing the performance in on-line session)
  • The roots of visual dramaturgy can be found, among other, in Renaissance and Baroque’s triumphi and intermezzi. Triumphs organized by monarchs are known also from the Danish and Norwegian history. After the general introduction to Nordic and Norwegian theater we will focus on the postmodern theatre and the avant-garde context of visual dramaturgy which will be exemplified by describing works of Jan Fabre, Michael Laub, Baktruppen and Hotel Pro Forma. Another phenomenon mentioned will be the overlapping between theater and visual art, the key term being the “post spectacular performances” (e.g. by Pedro Gomez-Egana).
