Kröschlová began to study dance under the guidance of her mother Jarmila Kröschlová (1893-1983), with whose dance troupe she performed in 1939-1949. She also took courses in kinetography, historical dances, and teaching. In Prague, she worked with the Music Theatre, the New Prague Madrigal Singers, the Jiří Srnec Black Light Theatre, and the La Fiamma ensemble. As a choreographer, she has worked on more than 80 productions with many different theatres. She taught at the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts (DAMU), where she was made an associate professor in 1990. She was also a member of the International Council of Traditional Music (ICTM) and is the long-time head of the Chorea Historica choral ensemble.

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.
