Circus La Putyka, a leading neo-circus ensemble, is no newcomer to the Theatre World Festival Brno. This year, they bring to Brno one of their latest productions, Runners, which is remarkable for its atypical format. Apart from acrobatics; dance, spoken word, singing and live music also play an important role in this production by directors, Rostislav Novák Jr. and Vít Neznal and by the choreographer, Dora Sulženko Hoštová. The dominant feature of the performance is a huge treadmill, which is the main design element, with “runners” telling their stories. Stories about life in running, eternal catching up and overtaking, performance, escape, stress, stops and falls and the grand finale of the race against time.
