The group includes one of the best jugglers worldwide, acrobats on a Chinese pole, cyr wheel, or roller skates, dancers and finally hair-hanging artist.

About the company

Cirk La Putyka is an ensemble dedicated professionally to the contemporary Circus. We are trying to transcend the lines between acrobatics, contemporary dance, puppetry, concert and sport. We are striving to create our own specific theatre poetics and find a perspective on the genre as a whole. For Cirk La Putyka, the theme, the story and the message are as important as the professional approach to both - individual theatre genres and circus disciplines.
