She does not enjoy on-screen theatre. It makes her feel like she is being cut with a knife.
The playwright and screenwriter, Michaela Zakuťanská, who founded the Prešov National Theatre, cannot imagine life without the stage, but she does not see the point in trying to move it into online space.
In this interview, she speaks about how the pandemic has changed the functioning of independent theatre and why she decided to move from Bratislava to Prešov. She is very familiar with the never-ending mutual teasing between the west and the east of Slovakia. Zakuťanská uses her own experiences as an inspiration when writing screenplays for the online TV series named Kavej, which entertains the whole country.
