Crazy jumps on a giant teeterboard, group dance choreographies, aerial acrobatics and flying on a trampoline. Gags follow a trick, rhythmic music alternates with laughter, and hypnotic images contrast with an open-air summer party. Tradition meets the modern, experienced Putykans mix with the young circus blood. A total of eight acrobats, actors and dancers gleam like the colorful fragments in a kaleidoscope. Let your mind wander. Open your eyes, prick up your ears and let yourself be engrossed in a glaring collage of art and joy.
"The title correctly implies that the show is more about focus on form and beauty than on metaphysical wonderings on philosophy of life and being.”
The show Kaleidoscope was created during the coronavirus pandemic, so the creative process had to adapt to the restrictions imposed. Due to the closed borders, the Finnish director was present at most rehearsals only on-line, thanks to cameras and monitors. By the same means, he will unfortunately also attend the premiere, which will take place on the Jatka78 summer stage.
