A cirkus bude?!

A family performance based on stories by Miloš Macourek

  • 110 min.
  • From 5 years
  • Czech
  • Premiere 25. 9. 2011

At a party thirty years after leaving school former classmates recollect their school days. Do you remember, how you shut me in the blackboard? How they kept pulling our ears? In no time we are back in the first class. Unbelievable school stories in extraordinary motion expression can start. Valentýn unravels the secret of the black board. Misbehaved Cecílie teaches all children to fly. And who is the best algebra teacher anyway? The production mixes acrobatics, dance, music and puppets with playful theatre poetics.

After productions La Putyka and Up End Down, Cirk La Putyka made its first co-production. Together with actors and musicians from the Minor Theater, Rostislav Novák created performance for children who already knew how it works at school. Though they probably haven't seen a class like the one they were presented in a two-hour production.

"You will enjoy and see, what you've never seen before on Czech stages; how it looks like, when contemporary circus is played for kids."

– Pavlína Wolfová (Reflex)
