“Family” is the largest project in the hitherto history of Cirk La Putyka.

Everybody who even walked through the company over the past six years have been invited by Rostislav Novák Jr. to cooperate and work together and to explore the turbulent development of a phenomenon, called family. This cooperation resulted in a new circus work interconnecting more than twenty artists of several generations and nationalities including parents of Rosťa and his son Matyáš. Presentation represents the first part of a trilogy “Family Roots in Black Black Woods”.

I was sitting alone by my tiny table, drawing, and feeling very nervous and full of expectations, wandering what shall I be possibly given. And, than it happened. All of them came to my little room bringing a tiny packet and I knew — that’s it — my harmonica. I blew the six candles out and … There was no one at the table. I was sitting alone at the table, waiting, waiting for him to come. He came… We were sitting; all of us, at the family table, no one said a word. We knew it wouldn’t make any sense; nothing would change anyway … I was standing on the table, unable to catch my breath for joy. Everybody did the same; started to dance… I slept with my head laid on the table, deep in the birthday cake. I sensed that there was someone walking up and down, remembering however, almost nothing. I was totally drunk … There were roughly twenty of us at the table… There was no one at the table..

“Family” was created as part of the project “Všechna čest” ("all honour").
