Azyl78

A summer full of culture is coming close! Pre-sales begin on April 20th.

The Azyl78 Big Top will offer a base of operation for many theatres, ensembles, and other live performance artists. You can expect premiere shows, events, and certainly a one-of-a-kind outdoor activity. Afterall, actors, clowns, acrobats, dancers, filmmakers, musicians and you, the audience, are all connected by one belief that #cultureneverstops!

We plan to run our new Summer venue from May until September. The idea to procure our own big top first came due to a planned reconstruction of the Jatka78 theatre in Pražská tržnice. This year is the ideal time to test out the operation in a safe outdoor environment. We will temporarily relocate to Azyl78, along with numerous other theatres, troupes, and artists – our friends and colleagues.

Our big top is easily recognisable. This tent, with a 500 to 800 person capacity, was custom made for us by seasoned circus masters in Italy. Lukáš Musil aka Musa will use the outside surface as his canvas and imprint his handwriting on it, in the form of black lines and symbols. The big top is black on the inside, which allows us to perform shows even in the daytime. When coming to us, remember that you will have a roof over your head, but you will still be outdoors. Therefore, we recommend dressing according to the weather. There is no assigned seating, so if you want to choose your favourite spot, make sure to arrive early enough before the show to do so. All the seats have a good and clear view of the centre stage, however. You can find us in the back area of the park section of the Prague Exhibition Grounds, next to the Stromovka park. We can hardly wait! 

Safe for culture 

We will follow the current anti-epidemic measures at all times. When entering the big top, it is necessary to prove yourself with a document about the so-called T-D-V. This means one of the following confirmations, which must be shown to the ushers in writing or electronically:

  • A negative antigen test no older than 72 hours or PCR test no older than 7 days performed in a professional facility (from Monday 26. 7. 2021 we will not accept, according to the regulation of the Ministry of Health, any types of self-tests)
  • having undergone a covid-19 infection in the past 180 days (with alaboratory proof)
  • from July 9, 2021, it is valid for confirmation of infectivity 14 days after the second dose (until now 22 days after the first).

For better comfort, those interested will be provided with testing by antigen tests in the mobile center directly at the entrance to the big top. For reservation for tests, please register here. The opening hours of the center are 5.30–7PM. You will get the result within 15 minutes and receive a confirmation via SMS and email. Our partner for testing is Anygence, which operates Safeside testing centers.
