Continuo Theatre has been holding a regular annual summer project since 1997. It is a creative meeting of theatre makers of different nationalities with various artistic approaches. Every year the participants of the project stay and work together at a former farmstead Plum Yard, in a village of Malovice, the seat of Continuo Theatre. During four weeks they produce a unique theatre performance which is finally shown to the public in a specific non-theatrical space more or less far away from Plum Yard. Last year the performance was held in Kratochvíle Castle, this year Continuo Theatre comes back to a space just next to their seat in Plum Yard.

The premiere takes place on 8 August 2018 at 9 pm. The performances continue until 15th August.

This year Continuo Theatre members have decided to change the project concept. A performance is usually directed by one or two directors. This year’s production will be created by eight young directors from several countries. Each of them will create a short performance and finally all of them will be joined into a specific theatre composition. Some of these short performances will take place in parallel, some of them will follow each other or partially overlap, some of them will be repeated. Viewers will become active participants of the performance and will be able to choose what they want to see and where they will watch it from.

Pavel Štourač, the current author or co-author of all previous projects, has become an artistic supervisor in this changed concept of the project.

The topic of this year’s project, which is simply called “8”, is based on the 20th century events in the years that end in 8 and they are kept in radio or other audio recordings. Each director has chosen one event and they can use their own artistic approach to make their performance. The final performance will combine physical, art and puppet theatre, dance, as well as visual installation.

In the past, summer projects were site-specific ones, which means that they took place in special non-theatrical spaces. This year’s project is different. A special stage for the performance is being made, which will enable to organise and perform this demanding project. A construction in the shape of an octane reminds us of a maze, circus or an old merry-go-round. It is being built opposite Plum Yard and it will contain several types of theatre environment. The audience will have various possibilities to watch the performance from different angles or perspectives.
