We founded Theater Líšeň as an independent, experimental theater.

We work with puppets, masks, objects, movement, and sound stylization.

For the general public and schools, we present our performances, workshops, and accompanying educational programs. We perform in Brno, throughout the country, and at international festivals.

We also focus on human rights and political themes. We have long-term collaborations with Romani dancers and musicians. We visit disadvantaged audiences in institutions and care facilities. We organize festivals. In our hometown, Brno-Líšeň, we contribute to the community development and have initiated the establishment of the association ‘Líšeň sobě’.

    Provoking theatre

    Theater Líšeň completed a three-year project, PROVOCATIVE THEATER, in October 2023, supported by the EEA Grants 2014-21. The project focused on engaged theater – we presented political, socially relevant, and documentary plays along with discussions. We revived and performed our Romani production, Paramisa (The Wise Foolish Rom), in conjunction with a dance workshop. Additionally, we had the opportunity to meet two very inspiring international colleagues.

    WE CONTINUE WITH THE PRESENTATION OF ENGAGED PLAYS ACCOMPANIED BY DISCUSSIONS, AS WELL AS THE STAGING OF PARAMISA WITH A DANCE WORKSHOP!
