Disk Theater is the home stage of the Theater Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (DAMU). Did you know that the architect of this theater is also the author of the iconic Ještěd tower? It was the very Karel Hubáček who designed the theater’s unusual space with a submarine-shaped roof and built it right inside the faculty’s court. And what is more! Not only a group of DAMU students but also some school employees, including the dean, will become your guides while exploring the maze-like bowels of the building complex that connects Disk with DAMU. Join them in taking a peek inside the workrooms, the backstage, and the Gothic underground!
