Some of Koudelka's earliest work as a working photographer was for the avant-garde theater company, Divadlo za branou (Theater Beyond the Gate), led by the director Otomar Krejca. As Krejca recalls in his preface, Koudelka once told him that "with us at the Theatre Beyond the Gate he learned to see theatre as life and that when he was no longer working in theatre, he saw life as theatre."
