FIVE CLOWNS MAKE THEIR WAY FROM POINT A TO POINT B, OR MAYBE FROM B TO A, OR, SHOULD YOU WISH, FROM C VIA AN INFINITE NUMBER OF XS. MOST IMPORTANTLY, HOWEVER, THEY GO ON THE JOURNEY WE SO OFTEN UNDERTAKE THROUGH OUR OWN INNER WORLDS. NO MATTER HOW MANY DETOURS YOU TAKE, THERE IS ALWAYS A STORY AHEAD.
Five clowns in neatly fitting suits pose the weighty question – to be or not to be? So heavy is the question, in fact, that at least one of the characters really ought to slim down. Five clowns stick their necks out without anyone wondering where the sticks have come from. In suspended buckets, dream logic and quotidian absurdity blend ceremoniously. Stumble but a little and risk kicking the bucket.
“…moments accompanied by explosions of laughter, which suddenly vanish as if they had never happened and situations that appear quite unexpectedly, but have a long and lasting endurance.”
“… the trio is reminiscent of the early sketches of First Czechoslovak Republic stars Voskovec and Werich from the Liberated Theatre.”
“… the scenes are meticulously constructed to deliver and feature series of brilliant nonverbal gags.“

About the company:
Our work oscillates between boisterous outdoor slapstick and refined creations for the stage. Both these approaches build – sometimes openly, sometimes more discreetly – on the archetypal clown character and the foundations of clown play. Human life is an adventure that is banal and metaphysical at the same time. The group’s style is characterised by the metaphysical escalation of the everyday and a workaday take on the things that transcend us.
