Kasárna Karlín – Stage 3
In an urge to connect with the area, two quirky & colourful individuals show the difficulty of learning to work together by trying to find the balance between the two extremes of social connection: the online and offline presence. They drag their wonky kart everywhere they go, bringing life to any street corner, through a complex mashup of skills and live beats to generate positive energy. It also includes partner acro, live music & comedy to create a show that will oddly normalise weirdness.
Balancealots is a new circus company, consisting of two emerging artists: Hannah Lennox, and Aleš Hrdlička, who graduated in 2020, from Codarts Circus Arts. The Scottish-
Czech duo is fresh, colourful and eager to connect to the public with handbalance and juggling, whilst making statements by being.
