We live in a time in which everything must be ready immediately, experienced quickly, and rated and judged right now

  • Premiere 8. 6. 2021

A physical theatre and new circus performance with an exceptional international cast, directed by Rostislav Novák and Vít Neznal, and with a unique set design consisting of a huge treadmill made to measure in the United Kingdom.

Attention: If you want to experience something extra in addition to the performance itself, come with comfortable shoes!

The production brings together American acrobat and longtime member of Cirk La Putyka, Ethan Law, winner of the Czech Dance Platform 2019 Viktor Černický, Tina Afiyan Breiová, who collaborated with world-famous directors (Roberto Olivan, Thomas Ryckewaert), and the breakthrough of the contemporary Czech dance scene Sabina Bočková, recently nominated for the shortlist of the prestigious Aerowaves festival. Live music by Veronika Linhartová and Jan Čtvrtník.

We try to catch everything and catch up with what we missed. It's not enough to be good, we have to be better tomorrow. Time - we want to be with it, but it overtook us long time ago. We can't stop, we can't sleep, we can't sit down, have a quiet cup of coffee and read at least one article from start to finish (this sentence is already long for you, isn't it). We have to run because we don't have time. We don't have time because it's still running. And getting it is a long distance run. A run in which endorphins are flushed into our bodies, so we love this lifestyle. We love it so much so that even though the pandemic has slowed down time, there are more runners all the time.

NOTICE:

According to current epidemiological measures, it is necessary to prove negative antigen test entering the Azyl78 tent. 

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.
