About us

Spitfire Company is an artistic company that includes works of physical, visual and dance theatre. It is currently one of the most progressive ensambles of author theatre in the Czech Republic. The most important and characteristic aspects of the ensemble´s work are: searching of an original physical language of each particular performance, emphasis on experiencing performer´s state of being that generates very present emotions, dealing with a human´s limitation and his/her existential situation.

Press responses

 "Spitfire Company are doubtlessly one of the most interesting and most original creators of physical theatre in the Czech Republic."

Marta Harazimowicz, Nový prostor

"Spitfire Company were never afraid of new creative approaches, syncresis of genres and styles or of resignation to common theatre standards and deconstruction of cliches and expectations of the public. Their will to "be different at any cost" brings original creative individuality into Czech dance."

Zuzana Smugalová, Taneční aktuality 

"Spitfire Company are one of the most distinctive Czech companies at the boarder of physical theatre and "alternative" drama in the broadest sense."

Vladimír Mikulka, Respekt
