14–18 June 2017

2017 was the very first year of ARENA: An Open-Air Festival founded by the Forman Brothers‘ Theatre. The festival took place in Prague on the Vltava riverbank and attracted over  6 000 visitors.

The festival introduced (for the first time in the Czech Republic) the new piece by Forman Brothers‘ Theatre: Wild West Show DEADTOWN. The piece was acclaimed by the critics, together with other art performances by the Forman Brothers presented at the festival. The visitors could choose from genres for children as well as for adults, e. g. Aladin by Matěj Forman, or Juri the Astronaut and his intergalactic journey by Giorgio Bertolotti with the co-production by Petr Forman. The entry to the festival grounds was (and every year is) for free so many visitors just came to enjoy the festival atmosphere in combination with good food and drinks.
