About festival

New Theater showcase

Showcase of Czech New Theatre – a showcase of the latest New theatre premieres of the last year. We present a recapitulation of significant interdisciplinary projects both to the domestic and foreign professionals that enables to hold up a mirror to their authors. We reflect developments and trends of New theatre in the Czech Republic. In cooperation with home scenes we try to compile the program, which then passes through the examination of both the public and theatre critics.

Cultural networking

Living networking of organizations, arts groups as well as individual artists – professionals in general. As the coordinators of the cultural network Nová síť we evaluate the outcomes (experience, know-how, contacts) of active networking. The Bazaar of projects called Take his breath away!, presentations or discussions and opportunities to encounter and initiate diverse forms of cooperation are parts of the festival. The festival centre with accompanying interdisciplinary programme is always an integral part of most of these activities.

Independent productions

Migratory Birds – a selection of premiere projects of New theatre that have its origins out of the home festival scenes network. These projects are not tied to space and have their own production facilities.

New Blood on the Stage – an opportunity to present young artists, thus providing them with exceptional attention and increasing the chances of their successful artistic startup.

Residents – the festival newly gives space to present foreign artists who are working in the Czech Republic and on the other side of Czech artists who are working abroad.

FOREIGN AND EXTRA PROJECTS

The festival program traditionally introduces theater projects from abroad. In 2019, the Malá inventura Festival will offer a sellection of independent Berlin theater shows as part of the international project PRALIN. More info about PRALIN project HERE.

Creative workshops

Malá Inventura festival gives the utmost attention to child spectators as well. In cooperation with the Education Department of the National Gallery in Prague it offers unusual theatrical – creative – multimedia – workshops. Moreover, the program includes performances for children.

Discussions

Regular discussions pursue critical evaluation of the conditions of the Czech New theatre and overall general conditions for the creation, existence and operation of independent theatre projects both in the capital and in the regions of the Czech Republic.
