Younak Circus

A spectacle full of twists and turns, great acrobatics, perfect performances of jugglers and jugglers.

A 300-year-old cult story about the Slovak Juraj Janosik – a robber who plundered the rich and gave to the poor – is told in a totally innovative way. Younak’s performance is a mixture of contemporary theatre, comedy dell’arte, circus and folklore, detached from history and with a huge dose of humour.


What awaits us is a show full of twists and turns, wonderful acrobatics, perfect stunts of kugglers and jugglers, with live music, modern dance and Slovak folklore upside down. Slovaks in Younak Circus group break stereotypes, play with form, experiment, serving the audience a unique family theatre comedy. This production has been awarded many times at international competitions and festivals.
