Languages of publication
The present paper deals with theatrical productions staged from the half of 1990s in Ostrava, the main topic of which is the self-identification and self-thematization of the city and the region. Author draws the attention to the phenomenon of docudrama and docu-theatre, and stresses the social and theatrological aspects of performing histories and mentalities of Ostrava from 1990s up to now. The methods of (re)constructing the place and its memory on stage are demonstrated on concrete productions, and a preliminary description of the audience’s response is attempted, too.
