Welcome to the world of the Forman brothers!

Open Air Festival ARENA founded by the Forman Brothers’ Theatre is a showcase of theatre, new circus, music and contemporary performing art. It includes performances produced by the Forman Brothers as well as performances by artists that Petr and Matěj Forman met during their travels around the world.

ARENA 2024 offers circus novelties unprecedented in the Czech Republic yet, theatre performances, concerts, art workshops and other attractions for young and old alike. Performances will take place in tents on the football field of the Smíchov’s Erpet Centrum and on the theater ship Tajemství which will remain at its permanent berth on the Prague 2 embankment. Entry to the festival area is also free of charge this year!
