Generation Z. Head down generation. Young blood. What are their values ​​and dreams? Do they really live in isolation with cell phones in their hands and headphones in their ears? Through the ultimate circus, they will tell you his story. They will play about freedom and everything that touches us and that we have in common. Come and experience the incredible surge of energy of the young generation, which was brought together by the war and the circus.  

Young artists from Cirk La Putyka and the Kyiv Circus and Theater Academy will meet on stage. You will see exciting couple acrobatics, cyr wheel, aerials, hula hoop, Chinese pole, juggling, as well as clowns, break dance, street dance or contemporary dance. All this accompanied by enchanting live electronic music. Through circus art, they will offer you their perspective on life, which can become an inspiration for all of us.
