DIOD

DIOD, a cultural space in the centre of Vysočina Region, offers a technically well-equipped black box of which spatial layout and capacity can be adapted according to specific requirements. The dramaturgy of the theatre is open and suitable for organising art and social projects of regional artists. At the same time, we introduce drama and dance projects from across the country and thus expand the public awareness of contemporary art in the region.

Location: DIOD – modern black box on the spot of a former cinema in the building of Jihlava Sokol by functionalist architect Bohuslav Fuchs.

Events: The overall dramaturgy includes drama, movement and dance performances, as well as musical, literary, artistic and film events, creative residences, workshops, projects and festivals that connect various genres. DIOD is also a space for local culture and community events.

Facilities: Black box (12.5 × 17.5 m) with no fixed stage and auditorium.

Opportunities: Within the dramaturgy of the theatre, it is possible to realise artistic and social projects of Czech and foreign artists and organisers. With a very good technical background not only for new circus is DIOD a regional centre for independent artists.
