New contemporary arts venue opens in Prague

A new venue for contemporary art Jatka 78 opens in the Czech capital with a show entitled A Mass for Souls on Wednesday night. The venue, whose name translates as Slaughterhouse 78, is located in a former slaughterhouse complex in the Prague district of Holešovice. It will serve as the home venue for the La Putyka circus which initiated the project, and will offer performances by independent and experimental art companies, the organizers said.
