 8@8 PROJECT

The title 8@8 signifies a series of eight ‘performance sketches’ of new Czech and foreign plays which are annually staged by Letí Theatre and the theatrical agency DILIA.


It is a combination of a stage reading and a regular production – a form that does not take up much time and also enables audiences to discover the latest Czech and foreign drama. The aim of the project is to present Czech and foreign latest drama to professionals as well as to a larger scale of audiences and to verify its staging possibilities in the Czech theatre context. The project attempts to initiate creations of proper productions of contemporary drama and thus we try to enrich dramaturgy of repertoire theatres and to support original Czech drama and contemporary drama translations.
