Libor Kasik

Director, UFFO / Cirk-UFF
interviewed 6 October 2016 in Prague —

The cultural centre UFFO, organiser of the festival Cirk-UFF, makes its home in Trutnov, a small town in the Czech Republic. Director Libor Kasik recognises that the town itself is culturally quite conservative, but also sees a benefit in operating in a place where open communication is possible: 'In a small town I can speak directly to everyone; I can do that. Maybe it can't work in Tokyo, but in Trutnov it's possible.'
