Glancová Helena

Interview
Stage Director; Pedagogue (* 1938/2/9 Praha)

She graduated in the field of directing from the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, where she studied between 1956 and 1961. Towards the end of her studies, she was already working as a director for Czech Radio. After completing her degree, Glancová was engaged by the National Theatre in Prague as a director’s assistant. In 1962, she went to the East Bohemian Theatre in Pardubice, where she held the position of director for three years. She then received an offer to collaborate with the Divadlo Za Branou (The Theatre Beyond the Gate), which was subsequently shut down in 1972. She then worked for the Lyra Pragensis Theatre. In 1990, the previously closed theatre was reopened as Divadlo Za branou II (The Theatre Beyond the Gate II), where Glancová remained until she retired in 1993.

However, she continues to collaborate with a number of other theatres. She has also taught at the Higher School of Performing Arts in Prague. Over the course of her career, she has directed more than seventy productions.

Oral history of the Czech theatre

Projekt, který vznikl v roce 2015, si klade za cíl zachytit vzpomínkové vyprávění významných osobností českého divadla, a to především formou audio záznamu (obvykle v délce čtyř hodin), ve většině případů je pořízen i kratší videozáznam (v délce 10–20 min). Dále je vyhotoven protokol rozhovoru, který rekapituluje v 15–20 minutových intervalech probíraná témata a osobnosti. K dispozici jsou také digitalizované fotografie či dokumenty osobní povahy, které pamětník poskytl.

Všechny materiály jsou určeny k místnímu studiu registrovaným badatelům ve studovnách IDU.

Modul Orální historie v rámci on-line Virtuální studovny poskytuje seznam narátorů se stručnými medailony a protokol rozhovoru.

Fond nyní obsahuje 50 záznamů.
