Theatre, dance, the climate crisis, human beings and nature… What is troubling our society? The 7th edition of Bazaar Festival of Dance and Theatre begins!
The seventh anniversary of Bazaar Festival of Dance and Theatre will begin in just a few days. As has become tradition, viewers can look forward to works by artists from central and eastern Europe, but this year will be a bit different. Prominent European scientists focusing on the climate and biodiversity crises and the state of our landscape will step into the art world for a series of discussions.
The Bazaar Festival thus becomes not only a cultural event, but one that connects the worlds of science and culture in an innovative and provocative way and issues a call to action to the viewer. The theme of this year’s festival, which takes place in Prague from the 27th to 30th of August is We the Landscape (?).

Our environment. It’s been a burning question over the last few decades, but perhaps it’s more relevant than ever in the time of Covid. How does this theme intersect with the art world and how are innovative, independent artists from Central and Eastern Europe responding to it? Taking place in Prague from 27-30 August, the 7th edition of Bazaar Dance and Theatre Festival asks: Are we the landscape?
Save the dates! We shifted the 6th edition of Prague’s Bazaar Festival dance and theatre from spring to autumn because of the Covid restrictions: the new dates are Oct. 20th to Nov. 1st, 2020.
