The 20th year of the festival of new theatre Malá Inventura will take place from 18 to 26 February 2022 in Prague.

Malá Inventura, the festival of new theatre, is a look back at the most consequential performances of the past year in the area of new theatre. It cultivates artistic diversity, calls attention to present-day problems through social and artistic engagement, and contributes to building a map of independent theatre in the Czech Republic.

This year Malá Inventura celebrates an anniversary that we do not wish to approach with reverence. We will not look back for too long, or preserve current practices and established formats. On the contrary, we will use the twenty years of experience as an opportunity to redefine the state of performing arts in the Czech Republic, particularly with respect to our post-pandemic presence. The art scene continues evolving, going gradually through transformations, facing turning points. And Malá inventura Festival must respond.
