Hit, Tell the Difference

Hit is a project about cultural hits - the hits between two different poetics, those of Cirk La Putyka and Future Vision Acrobat. Hit is about prejudice. About dreams. Hit is a celebration. Hit is about mom. About a smile. Hit is something that makes sense.


Bringing together acrobats, dancers, performers and musicians from Rwanda, Czech Republic and Canada, this unique project was created in Prague and Rwanda by the ringmaster Rostislav Novák Jr. and Rwandese artists.

“We have ten artists coming to Prague, some of them children, some orphans, others homeless. Some are musicians, some do flying, some are acrobats. All of them unite with Cirk La Putyka and our guests,“ Cirk La Putyka's Rostislav Novák Jr. explains. The project features the best Czech trampoline jumper Naim Ashhab, music is composed by Jan Křížek, frontman of Walk Choc Ice and member of Blue Effect, together with Cirk La Putyka's lead singer Andrej Rády and keyboardist Adam Novotný. The sets are designed by Antonín Šilar.

The whole project was captured in a documentary film to be released in cinemas in 2018. A sneak peak of the film was presented at Letní Letná 2017, one of the documentaries' sets, and is planned to be screened at Jatka78 in July.
