Peeping Janes

Every woman is a mom or a future mom. Like, really?

Three movement laboratories. Three choreographers. One director. Up to 15 performers, eight adults and as many as seven children aged five months to five years (children do grow up…)

Exploring the contrast between reality and expectations, experimental performance Peeping Janes fuses elements of contemporary circus, dance and physical theatre and also features aerial acrobatics on a suspended rope mesh.

"I wouldn't mind a dip in the ocean. But we're going to the mountains. We're going on a trip. Together. To Bethlehem. We need an opinion on body temperature. My butt's freezing. Those curtains were supposed to go in the living room. We're reminiscing about Grandpa. She's had no chance to enjoy her baby yet. It's Katka's fault."

About the company

Founded in Prague in 2011 as a duo, Cirkus TeTy combines contemporary circus with elements of physical theatre, while building on a foundation in aerial acrobatics. 
Drawing on intimate themes, this all-female group collaborates with choreographers and directors from the fields of contemporary circus, physical theatre and dance, and explores alternative forms of aerial-acrobatic material. After a decade of existence, the company has been joined for specific performances by other women from the fields of acrobatics and dance. TeTy has participated in contemporary circus and alternative festivals in the Czech Republic and has also performed abroad in Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, etc.
