More than just Theatre

A residency project announced by ProFitArt together with its partners – The Theaterfestival Schwindelfrei and KD Mlejn. For the residency we have selected two artists who, together with their collaborators, will be brought to the Prague cultural centre KD Mlejn, thus connecting foreign and Czech professional artists.

During the two three-week residencies, there will be joint dance and movement training for the artists, networking, work on selected concepts for future productions, open rehearsals for invitees and a final public presentation.

The selected projects include Oxy-Gen | Embers by dancer and choreographer Lisa Bless from Germany and her collaborator Anand Dhanakoti from India. The second, Whimsical Paranoid, is created by dancer, choreographer and teacher Martina Martín from Spain and dancers Sade Mamedova and Lorenzo Ponteprimo. The first residency will take place from 25 June to 15 July 2023, the second from 4 to 24 September.

The project is supported by the European Union (National Recovery Plan).


The international project Rail2Dance, which includes theater partners from Germany Die Theater Chemnitz, Slovenia PTL – Plesni Theatre Ljubljana, Sweden Norrlandsoperan and Finland Tanssiteatteri MD, takes public space and the codes of behavior that define these spaces as its central theme. With the help of dance movements, collective choreographies, dance pictures and games, the dancers of the project change and transform the codified rules of behavior determined for a certain space. The creators of the project are interested in places of passage and movement, such as railway stations, city squares and streets, and public transport. With dance interventions in public space, they not only reflect everyday practices in public spaces, but also question the meaning of community, which is increasingly disappearing in the modern world.

Project is supported by the Creative Europe programme.

Spielraum Kollektiv

Spielraum Kollektiv is an independent theatre group of artists around Linda Straub and Mathias Straub. They create original productions for contemporary audiences. It mainly focuses on documentary and environmental theatre for adults and musical material theatre for children. Typical is the search for new possibilities of form and the involvement of the audience to strengthen the theme, theatrical and non-theatrical interdisciplinarity.
