THE PERFORMANCE WILL BE SHOWCASED TWICE - ON WEDNESDAY 15 AND ON THURSDAY 16 AUGUST AND IT IS FREE OF CHARGE.

This performance is about love. It is about human relationships, respect and accepting each other as well as the fact that being with other people and getting to know them is tough.

“Letni Letna celebrates its 15th birthday this year. The teenager is ready to revolt and to muddy the waters of contemporary circus. It will probably make a few mistakes and have some crazy ideas; it will be too self-confident and pompous and it will have its hopes and dreams about a bright future.
It will also be 15 years since the moment we first built our circus tent in Letna Park at Letni Letna. The festival became a loyal partner of Cahin-Caha and we have performed at six of its seasons. However, my relationship with Czechia and Czech artists is much older. It started in the summer of Protected content I was performing at the Old Town Square for the first time. This year, I was asked to be the director of the opening show and I was happy to accept this offer. This project is the love letter I wrote for Letni Letna and for Czech artists.

The name of the show is De Nova Stella, or The New Star. It is based on the work of Tycho Brahe who discovered that the sky is not stable and constant but that it keeps changing – just like we do, only on a different scale. He wrote in De Nova Stella: ‘O crassaingenia. O caecoscoelispectatores.’ (‘Oh thick wits. Oh blind watchers of the sky.’) The name of the performance is a tribute to all visionaries who can see more and further than the place where the generally accepted assumptions of their epoch end. Long live the circus!”
