Live Writing Broadcast

The artist decided to make the process of creating artwork "live" for those interested. Due to restrictions associated with the coronavirus epidemic, the performance took place in the glass box office of the Komedia Theatre, where Jana Orlová had set up a provisory studio. Equipped with tea and a face mask, she wrote poems and reflections in it for three hours, and immediately after writing them she glued them on the glass of the box office for the audience to read. Because the box office is located in the passageway of the arcade, a certain percentage of the audience were also random pedestrians. The texts written during this experiment were published in the poetry collection You Won't Run Away, published in 2022 by the Brno publishing house Větrné mlýny.
