Cirqueon, our home for all things circus in Prague, considers itself a social organization. Their goal is “to provide information on domestic and European events in the field of contemporary circus, to support contemporary circus projects created in the Czech Republic, and to aid the development of circus skills of professionals and the general public.”
That might sound like a peculiar mission statement (who REALLY needs “circus skills” besides circus performers?). But you’d be surprised by how well they connect the dots between movement, performance, and Czech history.
