Sometimes it is difficult to be in the right place at the right time. But if you are sitting right now in the auditorium of the IMAGE theatre then you have succeeded. Welcome!
The story of IMAGE starts in 1989. Alexander Cihar and Eva Asterova left their engagements in another theatre in order to create a theatre company according to their own ideas; an independent, private theatre based on the synthesis of black theatre, dance, modern jazz, contemporary music and pantomime. A theatre that would give its audience cultivated entertainment, enjoyment of good music and beautiful dance and - last but not least - a good dose of liberating laughter. Despite problems with finance, space and technical equipment at the beginning, the project became reality within a few months without any state support and financial "injections". The premiere of the very first performance took place in 1990 "Jazzmime Stories".
Today the Theatre IMAGE is a theatre company with its own structure and a regular heartbeat. For several years a stable group of creative partners have been the core of the theatre. As a result of their cooperation an ensemble with its own image has grown and established itself in the world of theatre. Performances of special character arise from work of creators co-operating in a friendly atmosphere. The creators started to gather around them a circle of colleagues with the same approach to the idea of theatre.
Still, the growing ensemble has retained its own specific image although the structure of the company had to adjust to changing circumstances. This has made the company an unmistakable part of the Prague theatre scene.
