New Circus at Chapiteau X in Letna

Experience the unique atmosphere and the breathtaking performances of the ChapiteauX project

Unique atmosphere, inspirational fantasy, defying gravity, strong emotions, music that stays in your head well after the show has ended - that's ChapiteauX - a rare and unique project, that was created by the Cirk La Putyka ensemble and the Letní Letná festival. ChapiteauX, The other place in the city, is supported by the Prague's mayor Bohuslav Svoboda.

This months's part of the project starts on July 17 with shows happening every day up until the July 29.

Get a taste of some of the plays:

La Putyka

Length: 75 min

Suitable for children: 10 years

Next show: 25. 07. 2012, 20:00

Award-winning show from award-winning contemporary circus. Forceful and funny, powerful and poetic, La Putyka explores Czech pub culture through glazed eyes and beery breath... This energising, intensely vibrant spectacle fuses acrobatics, dance, theatre, puppets and live music into original contemporary circus that wins awards.


Slapstick Sonata

Length: 75 min

Suitable for children: 7 years

Next show: 21. 07. 2012, 20:00

Slapstick Sonata is a performance bringing together Mozart's sonatas with slapstick comedy from silent film era creating a very literal combination of high art and popular culture. Visual poetry meets absurd physical comedy and contemporary circus expression. Aerial acrobatics, tumbling, clown antics, dance, live music and theatrical elements fuse into a free-flowing stream of references ranging from the classical opera to the silent film comedies.


Up End Down

Length: 75 min

Suitable for children: 10 years

Next show: 19. 07. 2012, 20:00

The project UP'END'DOWN by the Cirk La Putyka is a follow-up of the previous La Putyka show developing its genre but with one big difference: none of our actors, dancers and athletes was involved with the circus disciplines chosen for the new project (teeter board, silks, ropes, straps, wu-shu) before the rehearsals for the show began.
