This issue of Czech Theatre is largely devoted to scenography. The American scenography theorist Arnold Aronson describes the history and current state of the PQ. In Czech Scenography at PQ 2011 Marta Ljubková, one of the curators of the Czech exhibit, explains the concept behind the selection of Czech scenographic works for this year’s PQ. Marie Zdeňková focuses on Czech scenography applied to alternative spaces and Věra Ptáčková writes about one of the most original scenographers working in Czech theatre today, Marek Cpin. Three productions of the director Jan Mikulášek from the past year are reviewed by Kamila Černá. Petra Ježková looks at the two productions staged by Robert Wilson in 2010 at the National Theatre in Prague.

Dejvice Theatre and Comedy Theatre are currently two of the most reputable stages in Prague. In Dejvice Theatre: A Success of Consistency Jana Machalická writes about two successful productions put on at Dejvice Theatre, one of which, The Man Without a Past, won the Alfréd Radok Award for best production of 2010. In The Civic Rage of the Comedy Theatre Marie Zdeňková and Richard Erml describe two productions at Comedy Theatre that in the past year caught the attention of critics; one, Offending the audience 2010, is a kind of retrospective look at and personal testimony from an artistic company based in a theatre threatened with demise.

The subject of Marta Ljubková’s article Tomáš Žižka: At a Specific Side is the site-specific projects by the director Tomáš Žižka.
