Finely crafted theatrical journey through the struggles of commitment.

Fri 1. 10. 19:30 350 — 450 CZK

Physically exhilarating and touchingly poignant, Knot is the internationally acclaimed circus and dance work by Nikki Rummer and JD Broussé. These talented performers use hand-to-hand circus skills to tell the tale of an impossible choice:  How can we be honest with ourselves without hurting those we love? Knot is a finely crafted theatrical journey through the struggles of commitment. 

Created in collaboration with award-winning choreographer Ben Duke of Lost Dog Dance Company, Knot is a very modern affair told with delicate sensitivity through breath-taking acrobatics and heart wrenching dance.

“Brutally honest and highly personal.” ★★★★★

“Is there a word for the love an audience can feel towards two circus performers? If not, there ought to be.” ★★★★
