Brno, May 2 (BD) – Brno is often referred to as the “centre of Europe”. This month it will be the center of the world, at least as far as theater is concerned. The Brno World Theater Festival (Divadelni Svet Brno Festival) will bring together talent from around the world in the many theaters of the city from May 24 to 29.

The showcase, which began in 2010 and is in its 13and annual installment this year, is one of the largest theater festivals in the Czech Republic and includes theater productions, children’s theater, dance performances, workshops, lectures, debates, etc.

One of the highlights of this year’s festival is “Asylum” by the kibbutz’s famous contemporary dance company. Photo credit Udi Hilman.

ROOMS

For those who understand a little Czech and want to know more about this city, The Stories of Brno (Brněnské pověsti) In Theater Reduta presents the humorous stories and legends about the city. It is a room for school children and their parents; but it might also appeal to those who know Czech to a bit more degree than ordering food and beer and are looking for something cultural to do. The piece is approaching its eighth year of production.
