Those Who Speak For Themselves / Czech spoken

The Only Story Is Yours / concept, screenplay & director: Jana Svobodová
Tickets: full CZK 290 / student & senior CZK 190 / #Study CZK 50. Available via Archa Theatre and GoOut.net. Large auditorium, open seating. Duration: 90 minutes.

Theatre performance Those Who Speak For Themselves transforms Archa Theatre into a huge gallery where authentic life stories of twelve women become the exhibits. The audience is left with the decision whether they will experience all the stories or only certain parts of them and the order in which they will assemble them.  An important part of the unique theatrical installation by theatre director Jana Svobodová is the original music of Michal Nejtek.  

Those Who Speak For Themselves is a show in which the performers are not actors. They don't play roles. They only represent themselves. Stories intertwine, people meet unexpectedly. Like when you walk down the street, you think of something, someone passes by and you catch his sentence. And it folds into a new story. Then it becomes the only story, yours.
