AKCENT – International Festival of Theatre with Social Outreach
15-20 November 2011
Na Poříčí 26, 110 00, Prague 1, Czech Republic
AKCENT, the International Festival of Theatre with Social Outreach, was born from the urgent need to create a platform for art that breaks the barriers between artistic creation, social problems and politics in the Czech Republic. It is an integral part of Archa Theatre’s social-theatre activities that will take place in the framework of Where is My Home project in the course of the coming months and throughout the year 2012.
The first edition of the festival aims to present activities where art is performed as part of socially beneficial or socially critical activities. It wants to give space for the art that focuses on specific social themes and works in the form of documentary theatre, community art, social intervention and art in public spaces. The programme includes theatre plays, concerts, presentations, documentary films and workshops.
