For the first time ever the theater Chameleon welcomes the company Cirk La putyka from Prague. As one of the oldest puppeteer Dynasties of the Czech Republic, the creators of the Cirk La putyka live a sincere love for new circus and all of its facets. Acrobatics, puppetry, dance and drama of the highest level come together. The spectacle was first performed on February 27th 2016 and is running until August 28th. There is a paid entry ranging from 37 EUR up to 67 EUR depending on where you sit.

Inspired by the family history of the director and the personal roots of the artist, the show “Roots Family Stories” invites you to a thrilling and visually stunning circus experience. Together with eight actors we dive into the imaginative, touching and loving chaotic world of Cirk La putyka. 

Be ready for a fun journey from the beginnings of the circus with oddball characters and dazzling costumes, to powerful artistry, dynamic choreography and a stirring soundtrack of the New Circus. With infinite attention to details a world stage was created, which has a few surprises for the audience.
