A colourful circus performance in the spirit of avant-garde will charm viewers of all ages. You will find here a county fair-like humour, pre-war circus style, live music, wonderful costumes, fairy-tale scenery and a story with a moral. The artists tell a tale about human desire. The main character of the performance is a man who wants to become a circus artist, but he is not brought into the fold by the artistic troupe. However, dreams are worth fighting for! The wandering troupe - along with the tent and the tamed shark - is made up of Slovak artists who are eager to present a round of circus skills and colourful characters. You will get to know a ballerina balancing on a rope, playful acrobats, unruly jugglers, strongmen, a snake woman, overgrown rabbits and a handler of aquatic beasts. And the spirit of the Russian poet Daniel Charms and his poetics of absurd will be floating over the entire show. It will take place in the Teatro Tatro circus tent. Tickets available for online purchase (link) or at the festival Infopoint.
In a closed and intimate performance, two artists will synchronise their music and circus skills to offer the audience a unique show. The effect of their stage work is magic in all its forms and disguises. The hypnotising rhythm of the performance will fill the entire space of the circus tent. Live music and sounds coming from the console will create a show using aspects of juggling, object manipulation and theatrical movement.The performers will make musical instruments and juggling props speak one language. It's a real artistic fusion! The audience will feel its vibrations on their own skin and will hear the pulse of the play in the sounds of a drum, saxophone, triangle, falling balls, or drops of water. Maleta Company will create their own magical reality in a circus tent and will make the viewer forget about the everyday rhythm of life for an hour.

"SoliloqueS" is something more than just a show of circus skills. This is a surprising event that gradually reveals the rules regulating the stage reality right in front of the viewer. The rules of the game change like the turn of a kaleidoscope - once shocking suddenly become standard. The most important, however, are the performers and the greatness of their skills. It’s they who provide the gathered viewers with the stage events dynamics and fill the audience with admiration. In the show you will encounter the bits of gymnastics, aerial acrobatics - aerial fabric/silks, trapeze shows, juggling acts and tightrope tricks. Five circus artists will gain extra support from soothing live piano sounds. The show will take place in Św. Jerzy church. Tickets available for online purchase (link) or at the festival Infopoint.
