The founder of ROXY/NOD Experimental Space is Linhart’s foundation. the foundation was established in 1990 as one of the very first foundation in the former Czechoslovakia, see It initiated the establishment of the DEAI/setkani initiative in 1994 ( which operates the foundations’ premises including the Experimental Space ROXY/NOD.

These premises were opened in 2000 as part of the Praha 2000 Cafe.9net project. Its beginnings were supported by the JEDNOTKA – a group of young artists, authors and performers which started their work in 1993 and stayed in NOD until 2002. Currently ROXY/NOD is an institution whose contents and form are determined by four dramaturgy sections and a cafe with a wifi connection. The sections are called Gallery NoD (exhibitions), teatro NoD (theatre), NoLab (multimedia) and bioNoD (film) and build up its peculiar expression. The theatre dramaturgy prefers to present the Czech independent stage art.

Although the NoD’s space is in fact a staggione, it is surrounded by a group of independent artists who realise their projects there. The projects usually transcend their genre and their presentation in traditional theatres is quite difficult.
