Norma Festival

NORMA is an international festival of theatre and contemporary art which was four times held in Ostrava. Norma is organized by Studio Hrdinů, a Prague-based theatre.

The NORMA festival presents original theatre projects dealing with trends and topics that have been of concern to the artists across generations and theatre genres. An important dimension of the festival is the close interconnection between theatre and visual arts, apparent in both particular theatre productions and visual art performances. This relationship is mutually beneficial: it is common for conceptual artists to reach beyond the range of the visual arts and thus theatre presents an exciting challenge for them; on the other hand, theatre-makers can find inspiration, transcend their field and discover an open-minded and fresh approach to their work.


The 7th edition of Norma will take place in Studio Hrdinu, Prague between November 16 and 17, 2024.
