activities Interview
Stage Director (* 1944/4/19 Brno, † 2020/8/27 Brno)

She received a degree in directing at the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno in 1968. Together with some of her fellow students, including Zdeněk Pospíšil, Petr Oslzlý, and Petr Scherhaufer, she stood by the establishment of the Divadlo Husa na provázku (Goose on a String Theatre) in Brno in 1967, where she was a director from 1972 to 2002. In addition, in 1992 she founded the Studio Dům experimental theatre centre, which aimed to establish a connection between theatre schools and original stage productions. A number of her former students are currently theatre professionals. In 2003, Tálská received the Czech Centre ASSITEJ (Association internationale du théâtre de l'enfance et de la jeunesse) award for her continuous work to support the development of theatre for children and young people.

She has been involved in more than sixty productions as author or director.

Oral history of the Czech theatre

This project was launched in 2015 and seeks to capture the memories of important figures in the field of Czech theatre in audio recordings (usually around four hours long) and, in most cases, also in a short video recording (10–20 minutes long). The recordings are followed by a report of the conversation, which offers a summary of discussed topics and personalities, after every 15-20 minutes. Photographs and personal documents (both in digital format), provided by the narrator, are also available.

The Oral History Module provides a list of figures who have recorded their memories, along with a brief profile, current photograph, and the interview protocol. Full recording, including all the additional materials, is supposed to be studied by registered researchers in the Information and Documentation Department of ATI only. Feel free to contact Lucie Čepcová: lucie.cepcova(at) if you are interested.
