Cirk La Putyka’s Biggest Project Cesty Rescheduled To April 2021

These days, the preparations should have been underway for Cirk La Putyka‘s biggest project Cesty (Journeys) in O2 universum, Prague. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the shows planned for 25 and 27 April 2020 had to be rescheduled. However, the new dates have already been announced: 23 and 25 April 2021, in O2 universum. “It wasn’t easy to find new dates. We had to combine schedules of fifty artists from all around the world and of a large international team. At the same time, we want to be sure that the coronavirus measures will not be in effect at the time of the shows and rehearsals. That’s why we opted for April 2021, “explains Rosťa Novák Jr, the director of Cirk La Putyka.

The production of Cesty in O2 universum was supposed to be the culmination of this year’s celebrations of Cirk La Putyka‘s 10th anniversary. To survive the pandemic, the company had to go virtual – they presented the project Cirk La Putyka (A)live on social networks, released recordings of their shows and offered special programmes such as Backstage and Homework. Under the hashtag #kulturunezastavis (you can’t stop culture), the ensemble holds concerts and street performances for spectators in their flats. Next year’s premiere of Cesty will thus become not only the celebration of the 10th anniversary but also of the difficult “extra” year that the company and the entire independent dance scene must live through under very difficult conditions.

Apart from Rostislav Novák Jr, the author of the concept and director of Cirk La Putyka, the project has brought together a number of international artists - Maksim Komaro (Circo Aereo), Daniel Gulko (Cahin Caha), Tilde Björfors (Cirkus Cirkör) and Ethan Law (Cirk La Putyka). The ensemble of more than fifty acrobats, actors, dancers and musicians will take us on a journey through the history of Czech circus. They will show us the paths that the art has trodden and that serve the company as the main source of inspiration: from the 19th century wandering puppeteers, early 20th century circus, through mid-war avantgarde and the Liberated Theatre, the Protectorate, nationalization of circuses, development of modern pantomime, the Velvet Revolution, to the foundation of the company and its ten years  of existence. In the finale, the artists take a look to the future and celebrate with the audience.

The brave new show with its breath-taking acrobatics and choreographies will unfold on a stage (40 meters long and 7 meters wide) build in a way that allows the spectators to be very close to the performers. The sets were designed by Martin Vybíral, the author of the costumes is Kritina Záveská. The original music score was written by the company’s associate composer Jan Balcar.

Cesty is suitable for adults and children aged 7+.
