Prague Fringe Prologue: An interim digital celebration of our 20th anniversary.
Due to the ongoing effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, and the re-scheduling of our 2021 festival to the Autumn, we created Prague Fringe Prologue, an incredible opportunity for performers with high-quality video recordings of their work to be seen on a national scale here in the Czech Republic.
Working in partnership with the Czech Republic's leading theatre streaming site, Dramox (think Netflix for theatre) all successful applicants were considered for a streaming contract.
From Friday 28th May - Saturday 5th June 2021 the 'Committee's Favourites' selection were presented worldwide via the Prague Fringe website - viewers streamed via a donation system.
Selected shows are now available for audiences to stream via Dramox.
Dramox is the theatrical alternative to Netflix, screening recorded performances from a wide variety of productions around the Czech Republic and Europe. Productions include everything from small, lesser-known theatre companies to national theatres and TV recordings.
Launched just 6 months ago, Dramox already has over 7,000 subscribers and is growing fast. Subscribers pay 299 CZK (about 10 EUR) per month for unlimited viewing, and the larger percentage is divided out among the shows that subscribers watch, payouts are made every three months.
Prague Fringe is proud to be partnering with Dramox to add some of the first English-language productions to their catalogue.
