Epizody: 13

To show off is to boast about one’s achievements or display oneself to best advantage. The ShowOff podcast series brings summaries from the international discussions The Show Must Go ON/OFFline which address the performing arts’ sensitivity and responsiveness to contemporary social, political and human civilisation issues. The series is featuring guests drawn from the ranks of theatre and dance artists, curators, cultural managers and theorists from the Central and Eastern European region and from other countries from all over the world. In dialogue with them, we try to map the performing arts’ emerging strategies and responses to global paradigm shifts.

The series is produced by the PerformCzech team at the Arts and Theatre Institute and in collaboration with international partners such as the European project Create to Connect -> Create to Impact project and the Performing Arts Central Europe (PACE.V4) network. The series are produced with support from the International Visegrad Fund, Creative Europe program and the Ministry of Culture Czech Republic.

    #12_Alghoritmic Theatrum Mundi: Future of performance between pixels, algorithms and atoms?

    What’s the future of the performing arts in the age of AI, algorithms and the metaverse? Can gen-uine human expression and agency survive?

Will this convergence provoke and gener-ate unique artistic experiments beyond our wildest dreams? Are we witnessing the emergence of a new, post-human aesthetic? In this episode, we delve into these questions and many more, in the company of AI experts and theatre practitioners working with AI, robotics and generative technologies on stage.

    #9_Healing (with) Theatre

    #9_Healing (with) Theatre

    How theatre can heal and, conversely, how it might need to do some healing of its own? What kinds of healing did theatre offer to individuals and interpersonal relationships in the pre-Covid times and what will this healing look like in the weeks ahead? How to deal with the fear that spectators won’t come back, and with uncertainties related to the cultural aridness of society? What mental state do theatre makers, dancers and related professionals find themselves in after so many months of economic, social and creative uncertainty? Isn’t the theatre itself in need of some healing right now? Martin Sedláček, a practicing psychotherapist who also lectures in the Department of Drama in Education at the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague invited four guests from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy and Poland to a conversation on these topicsand in this episode you’ll hear summary of their discussion.

    Over a year and a half into the pandemic, theatre producers, cultural managers and a creative entrepreneur sit down to reflect on their recent experiences of theatre on screen. What new insights have the pandemic and the resulting explosion of digitisation offered and what issues do the guests find most pressing now? Despite the ongoing uncertainty, can they help us find any reasons to be cheerful? Guests from HowlRound Theatre Commons, the European Festivals Association, Warsaw’s Nowy Teatre and the Czech Republic’s Dramox streaming platform dive into the complexities and contradictions of theatre’s shift into the virtual space, with topics rationing from digital distribution’s contribution to greater accessibility to the hidden carbon footprint of streaming.
