Astorka Korzo '90 theatre
Divadlo Astorka Korzo´90 aims to follow in the footsteps of the Bratislava's Divadlo Na Korze Theatre, closed as a result of the hard-line crackdown following the 1968 Soviet invasion. Divadlo Na Korze Teatre was known for its groundbreaking choice of plays and artistic approach to modern world classics. The present theatre has a repertoire designed to appeal to a variety of audiences, based on a personal style of acting by the company's remarkable artists. In addition to modern classics Astorka recognises contemporary playwriting. Outstanding productions emerged from the collaboration with the Slovak writer Rudolf Sloboda.
Astorka's professional team creates stage productions which for years have been an extraordinary seasonal event. The company has performed successfully at Slovak, Czech and foreign international festivals (Sydney, Los Angeles, ITF Divadelná Nitra Slovak republic; ITF Divadlo Pilsen, Czech Republic; TF Setkáni/Stretnutie, Zlín, Czech Republic; ITF Na hranici, Český Těšín/Cziesyn, Czech Republic/Poland; ITF Mittelfest, Cividale del Friuli, Italy; ITF Fringe 2000 in Edinburgh, Scotland; Celebrate Slovakia: Art From the Heart of Europe, 2001, U.S.A.; The Days of the Slovak Culture, Moscow, Russia, IFF Belaja Vezha Brest Bielorusko)
The actors of the company are recipients of important theatre awards. Theatre Astorka Korzo´90 was awarded twice a prestigious price for the best production of the season - DOSKY´97 for the Forest and DOSKY´98 for the Scenes in the House of Bessemenov - Smug Citizens.
