Street Festival “Behind the Door” Brightens Up Advent in Prague

On Advent Sundays, you can meet processions of angels in the streets of the city center.

The main program will be from December 5 till December 19 when people will be able to meet artists, actors and jugglers in the Prague city centre.

A seven-meter puppet of an angel will be accompanied by acrobats wandering through the center of Prague. The symbol of Christmas, hope, safety, and protection will greet the inhabitants of Prague on the Old Town Square and its neighborhood. 

“We are happy we have managed to find a safe alternative to start the Advent. The majority of pre-Christmas cultural events had to be canceled and we liked the idea of angels in the streets,” said Hana Třeštíková, the councilor for culture.

“The Advent time in the capital will be spiced up with some special performances and installations that will take place at various venues,” says Jakub Vedral, the producer, and invites the viewers to the first winter festival of street theatre.

Whereas the summer edition of Za dveřmi has a twelve-year tradition, it has not taken place in winter so far. 

“Organizing the festival of street theatre in the month when it freezes is quite a challenge for us. However, we want to bring joy to people at this time and entice a smile on their faces. When people cannot approach culture, culture must approach them”, says Michaela Holbíková, the dramaturg.
