Studio ALTA – Hala 31
lecturer: Jan Nepomuk Piskac
Allocution and dialogic skills, public speaking, self-presentation, coordination.

This is a course designed to develop public speaking skills and self-confident and clear communication with others. The basic educational approach is learning to speak or express oneself verbally, a process which is inseparable from use of the voice, gestures and movement.

The course offers an opportunity for participants to clearly and understandably present (and prepare) a text, whether their own or interpreted. It should be presented so as to convey its meaning, and in a self-confident and personal way. Public speaking is not merely “reading out” a text in front of others, but is also a way of presenting a clear and convincing viewpoint in the true as well as metaphorical sense. Public speaking not only requires the orator to focus on himself, but also on others, his spectators and audience.

The course is designed for teachers, students, managers, active politicians, social workers, medicine doctors, media staff, culture organisers, artists and active citizens. all those who, as part of their profession. For all who use the written or spoken word, those who formulate texts as well as those who afterwards present these texts

For more than ten years the lecturere has been involved in the development of the psychosomatic approach to learning, study and the creative arts in the Department of Author Work and Pedagogy of DAMU University, from which he graduated. Under the leadership of prof. Ivan Vyskocil it is educated here i.e. “dialogic communication“, “speech education” and „authorial reading“.

Motus a New Web in Alfred ve dvoře


Bojan Jablanovec / SI/

The stories about being a victim of consumption’s love ideology sprang up, scenes about searching for new but at the same time more and more ridiculous and absurd ways to satisfy need for love and need to be loved, were created. Casablanca is a performance about love as a misunderstanding, packed with cheese romantic songs and love clichés. It exploits theatre as a group therapy; performance culminates with the invitation to the audience to come on stage and touch performers following the instructions on their laptops. Casablanca therapy is a performance desperately needing to be touched by the audience and risks to be disappointed again and again.

The project was made as part of an international enterprise entitled DNA (Development of New Art) as a production of the Nova sit initiative. After a couple successful European tour, it is to be performed just twice in the Czech Republic in Prague.
