For nineteen years, Letní Letná has been setting the trends of contemporary circus in the Czech Republic and has become an integral part of the annual Czech and European map of cultural events.
Since its very beginning, the festival has presented the crème de la crème of international contemporary circus. It also systematically supports the local circus scene and has helped numerous artists enter the world of circus tents.
One of this year’s main stars will be the legendary Swedish Cirkus Cirkör.
Cirkus Cirkör presents the performance Knitting Peace – a breath taking and poetic contemporary circus experience with jaw-dropping artistry, looped live music and suggestive scenography. In a world filled with yarn, knitting’s and threads, subjects such as peace and striving are woven together based on the idea of circus performers’ drive to do what seems impossible. One of the most beloved and successful Cirkus Cirkör shows of all times returns.
