The two-year residency program Archa.lab is designed for young artists, graduates of various art schools, and other active artists. The aim of the residency program is to create a space for young artists to explore their own creativity and artistic research, based on a given subject. The Archa.lab residency program is focused on bringing to the fore those tendencies in contemporary theatre which look for source material in everyday reality and the political and social context.
Based on the outcome of auditions for short-term residencies, Archa Theatre leadership has selected a project of the artistic duo Magda Stojowska and Tereza Durdilová for the season of 2012/2013. This creative duo launched their residency with the realization of their project BOYS & GIRLS, premiered April 6th and 7th, 2013.
Boys & Girls brings a new perspective to the issue of the relationship between the youngest and oldest generations within society. As part of the project, a group of schoolchildren was brought together with a group of elderly citizens, whose living memory stretches as far back as the pre-war era.
