About the 15th edition of the festival
There was a magnificent open-air show for the fifteenth anniversary of the festival. Over thirty artists, clowns, dancers and musicians from Czechia and abroad demonstrated their skills under the baton of Daniel Gulko in the performance De Nova Stella which was custom-made for Letní Letná.
The festival visitors could also see several premieres. There was the European premiere of Dans ton Coeur which is a brand-new show by Akoreacro. The audience reception was great and both critics and the public were excited about it. The Losers Cirque Company who are known to the audience presented their new performance Vzduchem. Baro d´Evel Cirk Cie performed their one-of-a-kind experience Bestias featuring acrobats, horses, parrots and a crow. Adventurers Cirque Inextremiste came with their show Extensions the successful sequel to their Extrêmités.
