About festival

The AKCENT  – International Festival of Documentary Theatre was born in 2010 at the Archa Theatre from the need to present a new theatrical form to the Czech public, one for which the term "documentary" was later established. From the very beginning, AKCENT set itself the ambition to connect European and world artists with local theatre-makers whose theatrical expression is grounded in authentic events, stories or social positions. AKCENT contributed to the development of a theatrical methodology that is not based on the interpretation of a text written in advance by a playwright. It gave impetus to a creative process directly inspired by the current social situation. AKCENT has presented the work of world-famous artists as well as prominent figures from the local scene.
