Karlovy Vary Festival President Jiri Bartoska Looks Back on Early Acting Career - Variety

There was a different situation for theater actors and film actors. Theater actors did classic repertoire. At that time, the theater filled in for all the media outlets, which were entirely at the service of the regime. It was usually sold out, because people could compare their current situation with those classic scenes, and find truth in them. With film it was a bit different: Film was a product of the times; it was by and large propagandistic, and the topics dealt with were generally uninteresting. But aside from that, a great number of comedies and high-quality crime films were made that enjoyed high audience turnout and popularity. We as actors would say: We are theater actors, but we make our livings with film and television. In the big cities like Prague and Brno, where there were TV studios, actors had the chance to make extra money with series or dubbing jobs, but the situation in small, regional theaters was very bad.”

Theater provided both creative and political sustenance?

At that time, a group of colleagues and I had the good fortune of making it from a regional theater to the Theater on the Balustrade in Prague, which is where even future president Václav Havel started out in the 1960s, first as a stagehand and later as a dramatic adviser and playwright. After the revolution in 1989, the theater hosted Havel’s first premiere of “Largo Desolato,” where I had the lead role. The Theater on the Balustrade had a privileged position in a way. We worked with Evald Schorm, one of the main figures of Czechoslovak cinema’s new wave. We had the good fortune and Evald the misfortune of being banned from filming, but he could work in the theater, and thanks to that a lot of outstanding performances came about. So the Theater on the Balustrade had a sovereign position, but most importantly it performed sovereign drama.
