Jana Orlová

Jana Orlová is a Prague-based performance artist, poet and researcher. Her theoretic and artistic background enables her to work both as a curator and art critic. Her poetry has been translated into several languages including Hindi and Chinese. In her practice, performance art is a living poetry and she perceives her body as a field of event, working with ritualistic and holistic approaches. Her work is marked by a combination of a minimalistic form and a raw statement. In 2017, she was praised by Next Wave Festival as a one “who challenges the borders between literature, visual art and theatre with a natural lightness.” As a researcher, she is focused on a distinction between performance art and theatre.
