Acrobatics, Mozart's sonatas and slapstick from the era of silent film

  • From 5 years
  • No spoken language
  • Premiere 22. 2. 2012

Visual poetry meets absurd physical comedy and contemporary circus expression. Aerial acrobatics, clowns, dance, music, and hundreds of badminton shuttlecocks don't let the audience lose attention.

In 2011, Cirk la Putyka first got in touch with Finnish director Maksim Komaro. This personality of the European new circus brought part of the creative team to the project and staged a performance with six actors and acrobats, which has gradually become the most popular export article of the ensemble. The collaboration with Komaro has continued to this day.


2012 – festival Young for Young (viewer's award)

"An extraordinarily captivating and imaginative piece has been added to the Czech scene. An unusual stage shape, a waterfall of invention and brilliant ideas that ensure that you don't know where to look when you watch it. Bravo!"

– Johana Mücková (Česká televize)
