During childhood, our best friends are dolls, teddy bears or toy soldiers. They are our path to the world of fantasy, a source of comfort when we don’t feel well, and the only ones who truly understand us. They travel with us all over the world; they are our confidantes!

Cirk La Putyka combine the incredible skill and strength of a five person circus cast with our memories and dolls as toys, talismans and superstitions. Cast from the best multidiscipline masters of trapeze, acrobatics and contemporary dance from Mexico, France and Germany under the Czech creative team, Dolls is a visual specular that will set the Lafayette alight this festival fringe.

Nominated for a Total Theatre Award at the Fringe 2011 for Best Physical/Visual & Devised Performance, the Czech company is back at the Fringe for the UK debut of their energizing, intensely vibrant new show from director Rostislav Novák and choreographers Jozef Fruček and Linda Kapetanea. The company are proud to be back in co-production with the award winning, Berlin based producing company Aurora Nova.

Join Circ La Putyka for stories of beautifully rendered stories of obsession, joy, insecurity and longing through masterful trapeze, acrobatics, dance and powerful original music.
