The Antonín Dvořák Theatre celebrates the 110th anniversary of its opening ceremony this year, and the anniversary coincides with the important historic jubilee of Ostrava. The theatre building and its surroundings underwent many changes and reconstructions, which are depicted by an outdoor photography exhibition. Since 28 September, the exhibition has been deployed in various parts of the city centre so that virtually anyone can come across it. It will last until 28 October.
The concept was created by artist Jiří Šigut in cooperation with the Archives of the National Moravian-Silesian Theatre.
You can see the different parts of the exhibition at the following places:
1. Antonín Dvořák Theatre
2. Vegetarian restaurant Burfi
3. Sokolská Street 356/9 (next to the fabric and haberdashery shop)
4. Czech Radio Ostrava
5. Reální 1859/4 (next to Noy Café Ostrava)
6. Tyršova 1761/14 (next to the exchange office U Kudrny)
7. Tyršova 1775/28 (former Husky shop, next to sushi bar ‘Sushi King’)
8. Cultural and educational centre PANT
Those who will visit all parts of the exhibition using the prepared map can take part in a prepared competition and win theatre tickets.
The exhibition is financially supported by the city district Moravian Ostrava and Přívoz and the Statutory City of Ostrava as part of the celebrations of the 750th anniversary of the first written mention of Ostrava.
The exhibition is accompanied by an event called Between Theatre and Architecture. Guided tour with architectural historian Martin Strakoš will take place on 11 October 2017. The meeting is at 4:30 pm in front of the Antonín Dvořák Theatre. On the occasion of the 110th anniversary of the construction and opening of this theatre building, you are invited to discover the history and changes of the surroundings of this building and of the heart of Moravian Ostrava.
