A wide range of genres and a variety of styles are typical of Hana Burešová’s work. Her inventive theatrical productions show a great feeling for style, the ability to convey the contents of the play in an unmistakable form which strictly arises from the poetics of the piece. So far, she has created 40 theatre productions and 2 radio adaptations of theatre plays. Since 1996, she has been the art manager of Divadlo v Dlouhé Theatre, together with the dramaturgist Štěpán Otčenášek and the director Jan Borna. She has also guested in other theatres (the National Theatre, Divadlo Na zábradlí, Drama studio Ústí nad Labem, Viola, Brno City Theatre, Theatre M. Držiče Dubrovník, and she guests regularly at the Theatre Ungelt).
