The play Man without a Past by the Finnish author Aki Kaurismaki, staged at Prague’s Dejvické divadlo, was voted the best theatre performance of 2010 in a poll by the Czech trade newspaper, Divadelní noviny. US director Robert Wilson’s staging of Karel Čapek’s play The Makropulos Affair at the National Theatre came second, while the performance of the play Offending the Audience by the Austrian playwright Peter Handke at Prague’s Divadlo Komedie came third. Organizers said theatres in large cities ranked high in this year’s poll, as ensembles in smaller cities and towns seemed to have relied on a classic repertoire.
