Cirk La Putyka CZ


Everybody is an outsider somewhere

What do mouse people, monkeys, officials and a flying piano have in common? You won't believe it, but Franz Kafka. Accept the invitation for a fun and wild trip through the world of the famous writer. Find meaning in a chaotic world where nothing is as it seems.

In cooperation with the French director Daniel Gulko and the Cahin-Caha theater, we bring a multidisciplinary staging with first-class acrobatics, captivating original music, original masks and magic tricks. It combines the aesthetics of Kafka's time and the present day to create a new unstable world, suffused with unkindness and prohibitions, yet shrouded in politeness and absurd hope. 

The international cast of the show consists of circus artists, musicians, dancers and singers. Look forward to animal masks, piano in a special role and circus disciplines such as aerial acrobatics, ground acrobatics, cyr wheel, juggling or Persian pole.

Please be aware that a stroboscopic light effect is used in the show.
