activities Interview
Photographer (* 1949/6/6 Praha)

Kronbauer graduated from the Secondary School of Industry in Prague. Originally a passionate amateur photographer, in the 1970s he became the in-house photographer for the Czech Philharmonic. In 1985-2000, he was employed as a photographer at the Theatre Institute in Prague. He considers himself a student of leading Czech photographer and graphic artist Jaroslav Krejčí. Today, he leads the Theatre Photography Workshop at the “Divadlo” (“Theatre”) festival in Pilsen.

He is the nephew of Jarmila Kronbauerová (1983-1968), an actress with the National Theatre in Prague.

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)idu.cz if you are interested.
