Theatre Outside Theatre
Project of the National Theatre Drama (not only) for the times of quarantine
While theatres have been closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the NT Drama searches for ways how to respond to the current situation and perform outside theatres. “Traditional theatre” is inconceivable without life performances and immediate contact with the audience, but is there any decent alternative? Is it possible to record a performance and still keep the spirit of theatre?
A play that is to be transformed into another medium must be “reinvented”: we take the stage performance as the basis but try to find a visual or acoustic expression that would communicate with the audience almost like if they were sitting in the theatre. On the other hand, we take it as an opportunity to break through the limits of the stage and create a riveting show outside the theatre building.
This is the essence of the “Theatre Outside Theatre” project: new experience, new theatre.
