At  a time when traveling was fashionable, rather than embracing this new sense of internationalism, we were building policies against immigrants and those who wish to enter. Now after the borders had closed, we can reflect on how open they usually are.

What does a foreigner have to overcome before obtaining a residence permit in the Czech Republic? What were they looking for when they came? How many papers have they already sent it?

Using paper as a symbol of bureaucracy, we extend the arm of a state that has lost touch in fingers.We’re balancing on the edge of real and fictional absurdity.

You can keep your ticket, but we do require a completed form. After the performance you can move around freely and discuss what you’ve experienced.

● In 2021, all events at ALTA are free! ●

During the pandemic, we did not have the opportunity to meet you in person and open ALTA to the general public. Now that we can do it, we want to be even closer to you. We decided that we would not collect any entrance fees for our programs in 2021, so that really everyone could come. Culture to all!
