To show off is to boast about one’s achievements or display oneself to best advantage. The ShowOff podcast series brings summaries from the international discussions The Show Must Go ON/OFFline which address the performing arts’ sensitivity and responsiveness to contemporary social, political and human civilisation issues. The series is featuring guests drawn from the ranks of theatre and dance artists, curators, cultural managers and theorists from the Central and Eastern European region and from other countries from all over the world. In dialogue with them, we try to map the performing arts’ emerging strategies and responses to global paradigm shifts.

The series is produced by the PerformCzech team at the Arts and Theatre Institute and in collaboration with international partners such as the European project Create to Connect -> Create to Impact project and the Performing Arts Central Europe (PACE.V4) network. The series are produced with support from the International Visegrad Fund, Creative Europe program and the Ministry of Culture Czech Republic.
