Last year's trial period convinced us of Jatka78 right to live. Thanks to you – viewers, creators, performers and supporters – we go on. Operating in improvised conditions has revealed what we really need in order to keep going.
Our vision is that of a multifunctional theater, music club and a bar in the center of a gallery, together with a training hall, gym hall, fitness room and residential quarters for guest companies – all under one roof.
We do not want to depend on grants and subsidies. Jatka78 are being put together for everybody. And this is why we ask for your help.
We transform the Holešovice Market, we build a a new forum for free art.
What is Jatka78?
- A multifunctional space open to all. Especially to new art (contemporary circus, drama, dance, alternative theater, concerts, exhibitions)
- Cirk La Putyka home stage
- European crossroad of contemporary circus (we collaborate with prominent companies like Cirkus Cirkör, Cahin-Caha, Circo Aereo, Circus Xanti a celá řada dalších).
- Residential quarters for companies such as 420PEOPLE, Vosto5, Skútr, 11:55, BodyVoiceBand and others…
- Training hall with backsage facilities for performers
- Bar and gallery suitable for concert performances
- Center for workshops and leisure time activities for children and adults
What does „Venue for New Art“ need?
- Light park
- High quality sound system
- Dimming system
- Shower/WC rooms and rehearsal space for performers
- Comfortable and safe auditorium (tribune/elevation, seats)
Why is it good to support Jatka78?
- Because there is no similar space dedicated to art in its multiple forms.
- Because the Holešovice Market has the potencial to become a leading Prague cultural venue.
- Because the money we now spend on hiring technical equipment could be spent on what we are best at. On art.
What do you get in return for your contribution to Jatka78?
- First and foremost, you get Jatka 78 itself. If you „kick us off“ you not only get a good feeling in fact you get the theater itself. Jatka 78 will be yours.
- A ticket to one of the benefice performances by Czech prestigious theater companies (Na Zabradli Theater, Dejvicke Theater, Činoherní klub Ustí, Cirk La Putyka) staged directly at Jatka78.
- A set of souvenirs that will keep you close to Jatka78.
- An original work of art by exhibiting artists who form the Jatka78 community.
- A voucher for contemporary circus workshops.
