Earlier this month, Cirk La Putyka (one of the Czech Republic’s most acclaimed New Circus companies) and project manager Štepan Kubišta launched Jatka 78, a new theatre and experimental multi-media centre expected to bring new possibilities and new work to the Czech theatre and art scenes.

 
 

On Friday, Štepán Kubišta joined me in the studio to talk about the project, beginning with why the new site was needed.
