What is Prague Fringe Reimagined?
PRAGUE FRINGE REIMAGINED - Sharing the best of new Czech theatre with the world
After 2 years of disruption caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, Prague Fringe is finally able to present an Autumn Fringe of live performances from 2 - 7th November 2021
After a successful Prague Fringe Reimagined festival realised under strict Covid restrictions in November 2020 and thanks to ongoing funding from the the Ministry of Culture, for the final two days of this Autumn Fringe one of the venues (Divadlo Inspirace) will become a dedicated hub for Czech shows.
As well as being available for audiences to watch live in the venue, the performances will also be filmed in high-quality and live-streamed to our audience of theatre-lovers all over the world.

Submitting an application:
All applications must be submitted electronically via our online event management site Eventotron.com
Users must first create an account, then scroll down the Festivals page for the ‘Prague Fringe Reimagined’ festival section and click the APPLY button, then select the option ‘I’m creating a new event’.
*Handy hint: Eventotron stores your event information so it can be used again for applying for other international festivals in the future.
The selection process:
All applications will be considered by our independent programming committee made up of Czech and international theatre professionals. Not all members of the committee are Czech-speakers so the application process is conducted in English.
Offers and contracts:
By Friday 22nd October offers and contracts will be issued to all successful applicants. Unsuccessful applicants will also be notified.
Each show will be offered between 1-4 performances, on specific dates. Performance times will be finalised closer to the event.
Each successful show will be offered a fee per performance. Performance fees are supported by a grant from the Ministry of Culture so payments must either be made via invoice (from an s.r.o., z.s., or other non-profit organisation, or OSVČ entrepreneurs), or via a ‘smlouva o dílo’/ ‘licenční smlouva’
Theatre companies will have until Friday 22nd October to accept the offer and return a signed contract in order to secure the performance slot. Offers are final and non-negotiable, the contract must be signed by the deadline or the offer will be cancelled.
Performance fees will be paid via bank transfer after the festival (on receipt of an invoice or signed smlouva) by 17th December.
If tickets are sold for any shows, the income will be retained by Prague Fringe festival to cover operational costs.
