'Runners' by Cirk La Putyka

25th January 2022

A physical theatre and new circus performance with an exceptional international cast, directed by Rostislav Novák and Vít Neznal, and with a unique set design consisting of a huge treadmill made to measure by us here in the UK at Canning Conveyor. 

The production brings together American acrobat and longtime member of Cirk La Putyka, Ethan Law, winner of the Czech Dance Platform 2019 Viktor Černický, Tina Afiyan Breiová, who collaborated with world-famous directors (Roberto Olivan, Thomas Ryckewaert), and the breakthrough of the contemporary Czech dance scene Sabina Bočková, recently nominated for the shortlist of the prestigious Aerowaves festival. Live music by Veronika Linhartová and Jan Čtvrtník.

We try to catch everything and catch up with what we missed. It's not enough to be good, we have to be better tomorrow. Time - we want to be with it, but it overtook us long time ago. We can't stop, we can't sleep, we can't sit down, have a quiet cup of coffee and read at least one article from start to finish (this sentence is already long for you, isn't it). We have to run because we don't have time. We don't have time because it's still running. And getting it is a long distance run. A run in which endorphins are flushed into our bodies, so we love this lifestyle. We love it so much so that even though the pandemic has slowed down time, there are more runners all the time.

We had the privilege to meet up with CIRK LA PUTYKA  early in February 2022 and also met all the production team and the artists who took part in ‘The Runners’ show held at Jaka78 basement & theatre in Prague during 2nd – 6th February 2022.

I must say, the artists were amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the show, totally mesmerised from start to finish with the exceptional standard of acrobatics, artistry, performance and overall quality of this production. It was a credit to all the production team and crew of CIRK LA PYTYKA.

I highly recommend you book to go see this unique show and I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed!

‘The Runners’ show will be on tour during 2022 in Europe. For more information and bookings visit the website www.laputyka.cz
