Czech Showcase @ Fringe: Cirk La Putyka - Batacchio

Award-winning contemporary circus company mixes breathtaking acrobatics, original music, magic tricks and unexpected illusions in a fantastical journey to the spectacular comedies of the 19th century. Batacchio fluctuates between real and unreal, truth and illusion, combining new circus, dance and theatre with disciplines rarely seen on stage – ventriloquism and stage magic. This UK debut for Batacchio marks the company’s third Edinburgh appearance following sell-out seasons in 2011 and 2015.

Czech Showcase @ Fringe: DOT504 - You Are Not the One Who Shall Live Long

You are asked to explain a purpose, statement of intention and concept. But there is nothing. There is nothing to explain. Except for acceptance that what we do, and who we are, is in flux. Is what we do who we are? Or is what we do just a reaction? A look at features of political and social criticism and the obsession with satisfying our needs, whether it is love, sex or money.
