Let us enter your living room and watch interesting videos from our archive or the live stream of a concert with music from our performances.

Stay with us online. Without you it doesn’t make sense.

Abstract

Like other theatres we are affected by the pandemic. As an international ensemble working with foreign performers, we were hit twice as much: the inability to organise performances itself and additionally the inability of our performers to come.
Usually, we deliver high-energy multilayered performances with a powerful impact on our live audience. The online stream cannot substitute the live experience of our work. Still, we want to keep in touch with you right now.

Farm in the Cave’s standard space requirements for performances are as follows: a space with good acoustics which can also be completely silent during performances; typically we use a black box or site-specific space with minimal dimensions of 10 x 10 meters, with a height of 6 meters; at least 6 months before the performance our technical team of 2-4 persons must make a preparatory visit.

The maximum number of audience members at individual performances varies, but is usually no more than 450. 
The number of performers per performance varies between 5 and 13, and the technical – production staff is between 4 and 6 people.
The minimum number of performances presented in one place is 2. The company can play 2 performances per day are available on request – the latest start time is 21:00 local time.
 
The length of preparation and adaptation depends on the specific performance and local conditions, with a minimum of 1-2 days necessary prior to the day of the first production.
