Letní Letná and Cirkforum 2011

Who could imagine the end of the summer holidays without the Letní Letná festival anymore? For 8 years, Letní Letná has been bringing contemporary-circus companies from all over Europe to the Czech Republic. This year, the program includes acts from two European contemporary-circuss superpowers: Compagnie XY from France with its Le Grand C (as the name suggest, we can expect an opulent acrobatic feast) and Cirkus Cirkör from Sweden with a production entitled Wear It Like A Crown which promises a more intimate approach with a strong visual concept.


Letní Letná will also host an international encounter of European contemporary-circus professionals organized by the Circostrada Network as a meeting of its members which takes place twice a year. This year, Cirqueon – A Center For Contemporary Circus succeeded to become a co-organizer of this event in the Czech Republic. One day of the Cirkostrada Network Meeting will be devoted to the Cirkforum 2011 international conference created on the initiative of Cirqueon in order to present the current Czech contemporary-circus scene to the international guests and to acquaint Czech professionals with the latest events abroad.
