    About XV. International Festival of New Circus and Theatre:

    Prague’s Letní Letná festival brings international and Czech acts which inspire the audience to create their own definitions of contemporary circus. And every year, these definitions are challenged.

    Contemporary circus is a widely accessible genre, which makes it an easy starting point. Yet, disregarding the criterion of quality may be equally harmful in this field as in any other. Looking back at the thirteen editions of Letní Letná, there is no single item that wouldn’t reach the quality bar. A unique phenomenon, indeed.

    Since its founding in 2004, the festival Letní Letná presented 1,477 shows that were attended by the overall number of 324,000 spectators. Thanks to the festival, the Czech Republic has hosted prominent names of the international contemporary circus scene, among them Cirque Alfonse, Collectif Malunés, NoFit State Circus, Circa, Cirque Ici, Cirque Trottola, Les Colporteurs, 7 Fingers, Cirkus Cirkör, Compagnie XY, Compagnie Rasposo, Cirque Baroque, Cahin Caha, Malabar, Atelier Lefeuvre & André, Cie Galapiat, Le Poivre Rose, Cirque Inextremiste, Le Boustrophedon and many more. The festival’s attractiveness is incessantly growing: the first edition offered 60 shows to 6,300 spectators, the last edition in 2017 then lured over 45,000 spectators to as many as 190 shows. Within its fourteen year existence, Letní Letná has grown into a stable pillar of the cultural calendar, not only in Prague but also on the national level, building up a unique profile of an event that systematically hosts the best of international contemporary circus and, at the same time, provides cultural and leisure activities to children and their families.
