Set Design

RRR. Reduce, re-use, recycle. Re-using in particular is ever more prevalent and guides the institutions that apply this principle to act more responsibly. These are the values that The National Theatre not only professes, but increasingly also incorporates into its everyday operation.

We are currently working closely with the Re-Use Federation. The National Theatre has established a “material bank” project, which enables the recycling of individual set design components and their repeated use. The initial phase is now underway, and the storage rooms intended for the material are currently being emptied. A digital database of sets and decorations is also being established. It is being filled with content right now and should be launched in September.

Martin Kukučka and Lukáš Trpišovský look to the upcoming season with feelings of social responsibility and whole-hearted gratitude to the audience: “Around this time last year, we were thinking that we had turned a corner: the pandemic restrictions were lifting, and theatre was once again gathering the lost energy and strength. We couldn’t have known what 2022 had in store for us. Even in these troubled times, you have remained faithful, despite the rising prices of tickets and the growing costs of everyday needs. For the upcoming season, we hope to fill the world with meaningful, original, and lively theatre experiences, but also not to lose sight of all the artist who, unlike us, cannot live and create in liberty.”
