Cirk La Putyka CZ


History of circus art told through the personal stories.

Note: If you have purchased tickets (category Gold) to the table, please arrive at least one hour before the performance so that we can accept your order from the current dining menu.

The Roots production tells a poetic and at the same time rough history of circus art told through the personal stories of protagonists. The way how each of them got to the circus differs from person to person. They are meeting on this stage, right here and right now to show us the great things. Roots represents a second part of a trilogy Family Roots in Black Black Woods.

The first part of the shows demonstrates development of circus from the first half of the twentieth century up to year 1989, which meant a really radical turning point for many of the creative team members. Fall of the Iron Curtain means at the same time a linkage between the Cirk La Putyka and prestigious cabaret Chamäleon, for which in fact, the performance was planned.

Second part of a play was inspired by life stories of eight protagonists. Someone finished professional circus school in Canada, someone in Sweden and someone didn’t study at all; becoming however professional artists step by step, with each passing year.  Some of the artist travelled the whole world, gaining experience at various scenes, enjoyed some great tours and worked their way through to the original creative handwriting.
