PRALIN – Independent Performing Arts in Prague and Berlin

PRALIN intends to actively promote and support the communication between the independent performing arts communities in Berlin and Prague. Both communities have a great deal in common not only in terms of artistic aesthetic, but also in terms of working conditions and topics of discussion. They are both large cities with progressive theater communities, located closely to one another and are official partner cities. They mirror each other in many regards while remaining unique in many other aspects and each have their own special problems and are prepared to learn from each other.

PRALIN is a shared project of Nová sít (Prag) and the LAFT Berlin Performing Arts Program, in collaboration with the Art and Theater Institute for Art and Theater (Prague). PRALIN was initiated by the performance space Cross Attic (Prague).
