Theatre Architecture in Central Europe (TACE)

Theatre Architecture in Central Europe (TACE) was a three years long project, co-financed by European Union under the Culture 2000 program. The main aim of the project was to present existing knowledge and information about the development of theatre architecture as a specific phenomenon of the European cultural heritage. Within the project, several types of activities had been implemented in such a manner, that the outputs would address a broad target group and would appeal to scholars and the general public  alike. The project was prepared by the Art and Theatre Institute (ATI) and was led by The National Theatre Prague (Národní divadlo Praha) with partner institutions as Theatre Institute Bratislava, Hungarian Theatre Institute and Museum, Theatre Museum in Ljubljana and Theatre Institute in Warsaw. The project was launched in 2008 and continued until January of 2011. After its termination, the project was transferred under management of IDU for the phase of sustainability. In this period, the project became opened and cooperation was offered to other European institutions with an ambition to cover as large area as possible. In this regard, the project has been renamed and further on is promoted under the name EUROPEAN THEATRE ARCHITECTURE – EUTA. Project Archive...

European Route of Historic Theatres

European Route of Historic Theatres The Arts and Theatre Institute (CZ) and Instytut Teatralny im. Zbigniewa Raszewskiego (PL) are partners in a project called the ‘European Route of Historic Theatres’, which is implanted by Perspectiv, the association of historic theatres and was built up 2012-2017. The aim of the project is to create an online database, exhibitions, conferences, and information campaigns designed to chart, describe, and promote historic theatres in Europe and to support tourism connected with such sites. An important part of the project is forming ties and contacts between historic theatres and providing the operators of these theatres with an opportunity to share their experiences. Theatre has been a cornerstone of European culture for over 2,500 years. The buildings created for this art mirror our history. They can be found everywhere in Europe. Together they form a very special part of our common European heritage. The ‘European Route of Historic Theatres’ was initiated in 2007. It proved to be an excellent idea for travellers and theatres alike, and the European Commission agreed to support its extension across all of Europe by 2017. Sixteen partners from twelve countries have joined forces to achieve the following goals: conduct research and present the first ever online database of all historic theatres that still exist in Europe; select the 120 most interesting and best preserved theatre buildings and link them along a single, continuous cultural tourism route across Europe; create a travelling exhibition that presents this heritage in context.
