Radmila Adamova has been living in Brno since 1995, and has pursued theatre for some time. She graduated from the College for Vocational Studies in Information and Library Sciences, and presently is studying Theory and History of Theatre at the Faculty of Arts of the Masaryk University in Brno. Between 1998 and 2003, she worked as an author, director and set designer for the company M+M, where she was staging her own experimental texts, such as One Day of Josephine, Gloria or a monodrama Mr. Bu. She has been represented by the Dilia Agency since 2005. She devotes her time to playwriting; in her work she reflects in a rather peculiar way the position of a woman in the context of the present media culture. For her play Holky Elky (The Elle Girls) she received the Evald Schorm Award for 2005
