„Argolla 5th Element“ is the name of new spectacular show from our production. Breathtaking acrobatic acts, dancing acts, unique scenes and original costumes combined into an outstanding multimedial performance. The first night was held at World Art Circus Festival in Gwangyang, South Korea. More than 60 000 people have seen the show during 2 weeks.

The Show

We are presenting a new dimension of contemporary circus arts and performing arts in hour-and-half-long performances. The multimedial artistic creation is a story about the search for a pure essence that interconnects everything. It brings amusement, intensity, visual pleasure and live music.

The Story

Argolla Gate is a portal to a mysterious land of elements, full of mystic beings. The main character Kapillo, driven by the emptiness of his soul, ventures to cross its threshold. He is accompanied by an enchantress, who presents him with 4 basic elements in their beauty, fragility, strength and cruelty. By means of them, he tries to discover the mythical 5th element mentioned in ancient texts as a pure essence, which “Gods breathed”.

Team

Our team consists of 17 artists: acrobats, dancers, actors, and musician Maok. The audience has a chance to see amazing acrobatic acts (hand-to-hand acrobatics, aerial acrobatics on silk, aerial ring, flying acrobats on aerial straps, contortion, hand balancing, cyr wheel, cube juggling, fire and black light dancing), contemporary dance, musical acts, visual effects and multimedia elements.

Variability

The full version of the performance lasts 90 minutes. The ideal setting for our show is a proscenium type of stage with a load-bearing construction for aerial acts. We are also able to carry out only fragments of the performance and adapt them to unusual conditions.

„…and that spark is in everyone“

Argolla 5th Element Acrobatic Show

I am blowing through the ages,
above oceans, above the earth,
on my wings I can take you everywhere,
my home is atmosphere.

I am blowing through the centuries,
watching people building their rules.
They fall down and stand up again,
still the same move.

I am free, I can take you everywhere,
I am touching you voice.
I am free, I can take you everywhere,
o Kapillo.

(Wind Song, Petra Klimova)
