Prague Fringe Reimagined

Festival of new Czech theatre comes to your home this year. This November, instead of bringing the international theatre community to the Czech Republic, Prague Fringe Reimagined will share the best of new Czech theatre with the rest of the world. Productions of diverse genres for adults and children will be streamed live and the Czech Centre Vienna has handpicked two productions for you to stream on our Facebook: Savitri, an Award-winning shadow-puppetry piece accompanied by hand-made musical instruments and The Smallest Sámi, a puppet show for big and small.

Prague Fringe is the biggest and oldest English theatre festival in continental Europe. Since its humble beginnings in 2002, the Fringe has grown in both size and popularity. From an audience of only 400 people in the first year, the event now attracts around 6000 keen and satisfied attendees each year - of all ages and from all walks of life.


TUESDAY, 24th NOVEMBER 16.30 •SAVITRI (Divadlo Líšeň) 

An award-winning shadow-puppetry piece about how love and strength can to overcome bad fate. Inspired by an old Indian tale from the Mahabharata, this show tells the story of princess Savitri who sets her husband free from Death herself. The scenes, moving shadows on a wide paper screen, are accompanied by the sound of unconventional hand-made musical instruments played by the narrator.

Puppet theatre for audiences of all ages, in Czech with English subtitles



The Arctic Circle, cold and frosty, is home to the Sámi people. They take care of their reindeer herds, and when there's nothing left for the reindeer to eat, the herdsmen set out with them to find food.

One day, the smallest Sámi sets out for this journey, too. He has no idea what he's letting himself in for, but he jumps into the adventure without looking back.

Puppet theatre 5+, in Czech with English subtitles
