Rosťa Novák, the principal of Cirk La Putyka ensemble, artistic workaholic and perfectionist, agrees to make a joint project with a group of acrobats from Rwanda. First time in his life, Rosťa travels to Africa, to create a circus show about clash of different cultures. There he met Elisée Niyonsenga, who survived the Rwandan genocide as a child and now trains a group comprised of orphaned children. The two troupes begin rehearsing in Rwanda and Prague in order to put together a true circus for the 21st century. Czech director Michal Varga’s documentary follows this difficult process which culminates in a performance at last year’s Letní Letná festival, and which is sometimes emotional, always dynamic, colourful, passing through prejudices, different cultures, painful backgrounds and different work disciplines.
Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
