The “1914–2018” is a thematic project dealing with World War I and its consequences today. Throughout the 2013/2014 season, a series of performances — in Graz, Prague, Tel Aviv, Munich, Porto and Belgrade — explored the scattered, and sometimes forgotten, memories of a history that began in 1914, but continues today in different forms.

The following productions took place in the context of this project:

Thalerhof by Andrzej Stasiuk, directed by Anna Badora (Schauspielhaus Graz, Austria) | I Served the King of England by Bohumil Hrabal, directed by Michal Dočekal (Hungarian Theatre of Cluj, Romania) | 1914, based on The Good Soldier Švejk by Jaroslav Hašek and The Last days of Mankind by Karl Kraus, directed by Robert Wilson (National Theatre of Prague, Czech Republic) | The Fateful Adventures of the Good Soldier Švejk during the World War by Jaroslav Hasek, directed by Moshe Naor (Habima – National Theatre Tel Aviv, Israel) | In Agony by Miroslav Krleza, directed by Martin Kusej (Residenz-Theater Munich, Germany) | A man wants to advance by Hans Fallada, directed by Anselm Weber (Schauspielhaus Bochum, Germany) | The Last Days of Humankind by Karl Kraus, directed by Nuno Carinhas (National Theatre São João Porto, Portugal) | Dragonslayers by Milena Marković (Yugoslav Drama Theatre, Belgrade, Serbia) | When the barrage lifts by Guido Ceronetti (Piccolo Teatro di Milano, Italy | Gaudeamus by Lev Dodin (Maly Drama Theatre, Saint Petersburg, Russia)
