We warmly invite you to join an international symposium in theatre studies called 

“Brno Theatralia Conference 2016: Czech & Slovak Scenography For Shakespeare”. 

The conference is held by the Department of Theatre Studies, Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University (Brno, Czech Republic) in Brno in 8–9 November 2016.

We welcome paper proposals that consider staging Shakespeare in Moravia during the period 1840–2016 with particular focus on the scenographic issues.

The aim of the symposium is to map different aspects of stage design in productions of Shakespeare from historical as well as present perspective, artistic and political trends being articulated in the particular performances, and different ways in which Shakespeare has been transposed from page to stage.

One of the main aims of the conference is to present Moravia as a focal point and a crossroad of Central European theatre in the context of Staging Shakespeare. An important focal points is also the regional one, as the primary concern of our debates should be the productions of Shakespeare in the area of the former Czechoslovakia (todays Czech Republic and Slovakia).

Abstract submission deadline: 31 May 2016 (see General Information).

 The conference will be held in English. 

We look forward to meeting and sharing ideas and issues of interest concerning staging Shakespeare in Brno with you. 

On behalf of the organisers,
