About Tygr v tísni
An independent theatre ensemble Tygr v tísni (meaning ”Tiger in Need”) was founded at the Theatre Faculty of The Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. The group focuses on author’s drama, 20th and 21st century literature adaptations and on finding new forms of theatre in unconventional spaces. The members experiment with forms of cabaret, montage, site-specific, scenic lectures and music or immersive theatre. Through adaptations of biographical and autobiographical literature and essential works of modern literature Tygr v tísni brings a contemporary perspective of young creatives on political and cultural issues and history. The leading personas are director Ivo Kristián Kubák and dramaturgist and author Marie Nováková. Among their notable productions in spaces other than theatre itself is an interactive event Golem of Štvanice , which opened up a opportunity for having Tygr v tísni as a resident of Vila Štvanice cultural space.
