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.

Director: Maksim Komaro
Cast: Šárka Bočková, Michal Boltnar, Vojtěch Fülep, Daniel Komarov, Anna Schmidtmajerová, Alexandr Volný, Jiří Weissmann
Choreography: Ilona Jäntti
Music: Jan Balcar

Q&A with La Putyka about the dramaturgy of Batacchio


Cirk La Putyka is an ensemble dedicated professionally to the contemporary Circus. We are trying to transcend the lines between acrobatics, contemporary dance, puppetry, concert and sport. We are striving to create our own specific theatre poetics and find a perspective on the genre as a whole. For Cirk La Putyka, the theme, the story and the message are as important as the professional approach to both - individual theatre genres and circus disciplines. www.laputyka.cz
