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.

Pay What You Can

In 2021 all events at Studio ALTA were free. In 2022 we are introducing a new pricing system – Pay What You Can – which will allow you to choose to pay for your ticket an amount you can afford.

Tickets for each event now feature a suggested amount, giving you access to performances at ALTA for a lower price. Great! If you can pay more, you will help others pay less. We don’t wish to judge nor stigmatise but create a space for mutual solidarity and make culture accessible.

The Pay What You Can system is inspired by similar systems used by  Theater, Atelier 210 in Belgium, and Battersea Arts Centre in London.

TICKETS 21. 10.
