Collection of Sceptical Pleasures

“We can have everything we want. We can have so much, we want less. When we have too little, we look at those who have plenty. But we always forget we’re in the same place." 

Filip Zahradnický’s full-length solo performance Collection of Sceptical Pleasures uses juggling, object manipulation and movement as its principal means of expression. The show presents an abstract collage of scenes and images inspired by the necessity and the futility of art.

Filip Zahradnický creates his own space where abstract art and particular objects come together to spawn surreal situations that challenge the genres of contemporary circus performance and art exhibitions.

Audience: adult, children 12+
