+ Program

Can We Help You? | Marika Smreková

Let us remove our social stickers and create a shared space for people without age restrictions. For parents and their children and people without obligations, seniors and teenagers, for people who work or care for the evening, and those who can go to culture without a time limit. Our program will be about intersections in social gatherings, talking, trying to understand people with different life experiences, babysitting together, creative workshops, cultural activism, or learning about the benefits of social diversity.


STUDIO OF INCLUSIVE CULTURE

| I AM LOOKING FOR EVERYONE WHO MISSES CULTURE |

  • When: May 10– 24, 2022; 9am–12am & 3pm–6pm, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
  • Where: GAMPA, Příhrádek 5, Pardubice 

Marika Smreková (*1988) studied drama directing at the Janáček Academy of Performing Arts in Brno. She is a theatre director, founder and curator of the UM UM Community Festival of Contemporary Theatre and Art (2012–2021) in Stará Ľubovňa, Slovakia. As part of this festival, she has conducted, for the past five years, her own artistic research into the relationships between contemporary Slovak society and its various ethnic groups, as well as exploring the connections of the performativity of contemporary theatre with the performativity of traditions and non-staged folklore. Already as a student, she presented several performances in Stará Ľubovňa in collaboration with the local community. She is currently living in Prague and searching for connections between the results of her research and environmental art extending into direct action involving movements for climate and social justice.
