About the file

Our duck trio was born, if you like, hatched, at HAMU, specifically at the Department of Pantomime. During our studies, it became clear that we work better within different comedy genres and since each of us had already profiled ourselves in the fire scene, it was quite logical that sooner or later we would create something together. It was the lack of humor and hyperbole in most fireshows that inspired us to create the short Fireducks, which also became the name of our group. With this duck lovestory, we swam through the cultural festival pond and the audience clearly confirmed that ducks have their place on the Czech scene.

About the show

Fireducks presents a culinary roadshow in the form of comic street theatre.

Most of us love food. We have our favourite restaurants. We appreciate culinary skills. Especially when the smell of the exotic hits us. For a lot of people, it's one of the ways their taste buds travel the world. But what happens when your hosts are the ones you normally have served on your plate?

The fragrant and delicate duck and his two partners of mysterious taste are passionate about finding and preparing unusual dishes. Their wings deftly manipulate various ingredients and juggle cooking tools. You have a unique opportunity to take a peek under the hood of our kitchen, where it gets pretty damn hot. You can definitely look forward to unconventional work with fire and pyrotechnics, or we will do everything for food! It's up to you which dish you choose and we'll make sure you have an unforgettable experience.

And if perhaps you are not satisfied, our silent companion Mr. Wu handles the complaints!

Fragrant and delicate duck: Michaela Hradecká

Duck buddies: Ondřej Holba, Jakub Urban

The cooking roadshow was supported by the City of Prague and the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.

About the file

Balancealots is a Czech-Scottish new-circus duo formed by Aleš Hrdlička and Hannah Lennox. Both solo graduates from Codarts Circus Arts University in Rotterdam, they now join forces as a fresh and colourful duo, aiming to connect with audiences through juggling and hand balancing.

About the show

In the urge to connect with their environment, the two colorful and unpredictable individuals learn to function together, finding a balance between the two extremes of social connection: online and offline presence.
In their rickety wagon, they bring circus skills, lively rhythms and positive energy to every street, creating virtual and real connections.
Using hand balancing, juggling, acrobatics and clowning, they aim to create a performance that strangely normalises and celebrates otherness.

About the show

With a good deal of slamming and vulture-ing, the personification of an ancient human invention, the real, unadulterated bicycle, comes to you.

But our bike is a giant, it is a circus bike, a fairy tale bike, light as a lover's thought, heavy as a lonely heart, no exaggeration, five metres high, half a tonne light, perfectly balanced and controlled by the gentlest touch.

The two heroes spin a tale of a summer love that began as if on a swing and eventually soared above the clouds. Do today's girls fly not only on cars, but also on bicycles? Is the bicycle the ideal means of transport for a trip for two? Are small human hands enough to spin a five-metre colossus?

You will see acrobatics, dance and pranks, heavy balancing on the edge of risk and light dance steps.

Step into the playful circle of love and let our circle take you high above the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We have two extra seats and we'll let you take turns on them with the others...

... is a journey, a community, a nomadic platform, a transient world, a meeting in between, where artists and spectators come together to create a unique poetics of a shared moment.
Le Cabaret Nomade is an international collective of artists that

They specialize in theatre for one spectator (entre-sort) - a form of theatre that has an established tradition abroad, but is still in its cradle in the Czech Republic. They process this genre through movement and object theatre, music and visual arts. They have a diverse repertoire of these performances (Cabinet of Memories, NITROSCOPE, Tabernaculum, Shalabunda, ObjectIF). Le Cabaret Nomade has been on the Czech theatre scene since 2016. In the time the company has been operating, it has managed to create a network of renowned festivals (e.g. Festival Za dveřmi in Prague and Pilsen, Bonjour Brno in Brno, Cirk-UFF in Trutnov, Výletnění in Plana u Mariánských Lázní, Gasparáda in Kolín, etc.), where

About the file

Our work oscillates between unbridled street grotesque and sophisticated stage form. In both cases we build on the figure of the clown and the principle of clown play. The adventure of human life seen through the eyes of a clown is both everyday and transcendent.
- Robert Janč

About the show

Three urban nomads make a world out of what the others have thrown away. From the rubble they build memories of the past, illusions of a better tomorrow, and ephemeral backdrops of a bleak present. They interact with each other and with the audience. The clowns return to their vagabond roots and find humour only at the deepest bottom, from which it is hard to bounce back. The link between society and its outcasts in this case is gags, the ability to laugh at the same things. Building from the rubble may be something everyone will one day do. A street slapstick about the real inhabitants of places and moments that most of us pass through unnoticed. A comic-tragic play about three fellow inmates who need little to need nothing.
For audiences of all ages.
