Between the old juggling and contemporary circus traditions, with live music and spectacular artistry – an international ensemble with 7 circus artists, actors, dancers and musicians brings their own version of Fellini’s classic film "La Strada" to the stage.

STRADA! kidnaps the audience and takes them on a circus journey into the depths of the soul: a crude street juggler discovers love, his naively innocent assistant the big wide world, a widow her desire, and an artist his premature death. The performance unleashes a physically-emotional chaos of feelings that has the audience under its spell right from the start.

Viva la vita! Viva il circo!
