Abstract


international harvest of life arts

After six years of its existence and performances on several continents, the international theatre studio Farm in the Cave brings into Prague the works of unique world artists, whose expression borders on theatre and other genre.
The festival is held within the project „Search for Message“, supported by European Union grant Culture 2000.

 The festival is held under the auspices of Mr. Václav Havel, Pavel Bém and Eugenio Barba

"All of the performances were sold out, full of spectators ravenous for contemporary work, and shrouded in legends of anthropological, ethnographical and physical theater… The Czech public has never seen such a noble-minded festival in this field of theater, its high artistic quality illuminated with current trends... With Festival Farma 2007 a new epoch began for Czech movement theater."  Vladimír Hulec, The Theater Newspaper

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.
