About the festival
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 2023 offers circus novelties unprecedented in the Czech Republic yet, brand new performances, concerts, art workshops and other attractions for young and old alike. The sixth year of the festival will welcome visitors again in Prague on Smíchovská náplavka and also in the nearby Erpet Centrum. Performances will take place in tents or in the open air at the football field of the Erpet Centrum, in the park on the Hořejší nábřeží, and on the theater ship Tajemství moored at Smíchovská náplavka. Entry to the festival area is also free of charge this year!
