'A Dadaist cabaret of meticulously orchestrated chaos. Loco, loco, loco!'
My!Laika’s world is apocalyptic, an electric landscape where a surprising present coexists with an unknown past. There’s humour, bold acrobatics, a well-played Chopin waltz – even a popcorn volcano amongst other delights in this hour of surprising circus theatre, in which three charismatic women and one man live out a series of implausible scenes. Frank Zappa, Jacky Chan, Kurt Schwitters and The Ramones were inspirational in creating this fast-moving collage of bizarre and entertaining events which fuse circus discipline and rich imagination, a winner at the prestigious Jeunes Talents Cirque Awards in 2010.
