Filip Zahradnický – Collection of Sceptical Pleasures

“A Collection of Sceptical Pleasures” is a full-length solo performance by Filip Zahradnický which 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 which challenge the genre of contemporary circus performance and art exhibition.

Length 55 min Who is it suitable for? 10+
