OPEN CALL: Be Part of the Berlin Delegation to the Malá inventura Festival in Prague

Deadline: December 8, 2019

As part of the PRALIN exchange project, members of Berlin's independent performing arts community have the opportunity to attend the Malá inventura festival in Prague from February 21 - 24, 2020, enter into exchanges with the producers and participating artists and obtain insight into Prague's independent performing arts community.

Malá inventura is a festival in Prague that has existed for 16 years and which presents productions made in the independent performing arts communities of Prague and the Czech Republic in the previous year in a bundled format. The festival is presented by Nová sít' - an open network of independent performance venues.

PRALIN, the community partnership between Prague and Berlin, intends to actively promote and support the communication between the independent performing arts communities in Berlin and Prague. Both communities have a great deal in common: not only in terms of artistic aesthetic, but also in terms of working conditions and topics of discussion.

PRALIN is a shared project of Nová sít' (Prague) and the LAFT Berlin Performing Arts Program, in collaboration with the Arts and Theater Institute in Prague and the Prague Goethe-Institut. PRALIN was initiated by the Prague-based performance venue Cross Attic.

You can soon find information about this year's edition of the festival on its website:

The schedule of programming for 2020 will be published there in the middle of December.

What is included in the program?
The travel expenses, accommodations from February 21 to 24, 2020 as well as tickets for the events will be paid for by the organizers. Alongside the schedule of programming of artistic events, there will also be networking as well as additional professional development events. If productions presented during the festival are invited to Berlin by members of the delegation, Nová Sít‘ is able to provide financial support in the amount of up to € 800 per production invited to offer guest performances in Berlin.

Who can apply?
This call for applications is intended for all members of Berlin's independent performing arts community. We look forward to applications from directors of festivals and performance venues, curators, critics, dramaturgs, production managers as well as artists.
