I have published essays and book reviews, in English and in Czech, in catalogues and peer-reviewed journals including Theatre Design&Technology, Theatralia , Divadelní revue, and Performance Research.

Among my most recent writings is my essay “Modern and Contemporary Czech Theatre Design: Dramatic Space of Freedom” in The Routledge Companion to Scenography (edited by A. Aronson, 2017). I also published “Theatre Design as Interpreter of History. Shakespeare in Prague: Imagining the Bard in the Heart of Europe” in Theatre Design & Technology (Summer 2017).

My essay “Costume and the Performing Body” appeared in The Disappearing Stage: Reflections on the 2011 Prague Quadrennial (Prague: Arts and Theatre Institute, 2011, edited by A. Aronson). I also contributed a chapter on contemporary costume designers in the Czech Republic to the book Czech Theatre Costume (Prague: Arts and Theatre Institute/Scéna: 2011).

I co-edited as a guest the special issue of Theatre and Performance Design Journal on the Prague Quadrennial 2015 (Routledge, 2016), and I have edited the book Scénografie mluví (Scenography Speaks: Conversations of Jarka Burian with Josef Svoboda, 2014; nominated for the Czech “Theatre News Award” 2014).
