The Prague Microfestival is an underground literary festival, bringing the best of the world’s experimental poetry and fiction to a Czech audience. From Friday 13 May to Sunday 15 May, fans of indie lit can experience a unique line-up of writers from Czechia, Ireland, Slovenia, Australia, France, Britain, Austria, Germany and more in Prague’s coolest underground venue, Vzorkovna, a block from the National Theatre on Národní třída. Friday night kicks off with the best in translocal fiction, Saturday showcases contemporary Slovenian poetry and Sunday features international performance art and experimental poetry.
The three-day event begins at 18:30 daily with film screenings, courtesy of FAMU and Prague Film School, followed by author readings at 19:00 and live music from 22:00 continuing all night. *All readings will be bilingual (English/Czech; Slovenian/English/Czech).
“I’m incredibly excited about this unique event, which allows Czech art fans to enjoy a truly international line-up at Prague’s very own Vzorkovna,” says Jaromír Lelek, Prague Microfestival’s director.
The eighth edition of the Prague Microfestival will also showcase a selection of new independent short films, visual arts, dance performances and more. The entirety of Vzorkovna, itself a cross-between a club, gallery, restaurant and labyrinth, will be filled with interactive bodypainting stalls, graffiti art, workshops, music and theatre improvisation, and a unique range of bookstalls offering hard-to-find indie book and magazine publications, and the latest titles from Literaria Pragensia, Equus Press, VLAK, and many others.
The festival is organised by Spolek pro Prahu literární – Literary Prague Association.
