Description The study explores theoretical works and managing activities of Czech set-designer Miroslav Kouřil (1911-1984). First part is devoted to two crucial periods in Kouřil's professional life: his career of a stage designer, and the following involvement in theoretical reception of theatre and practical organization of theatre life in the then Czechoslovakia. In the second part, attention is drawn to Kouřil's presidency over the Czech Scenographic Institute, and to the project of the Encyclopaedia of Scenography managed by him. In the third part, the author concerns with Kouřil's theoretical works, especially the way in which he used structuralist methodology to analyse theatre productions.
