On June 7 and 8, the former Světovar brewery in Pilsen will open its gates for the Žonglobalizace (Jugglobalization) festival of music, theater and contemporary circus. The program features both Czech and foreign artists including performers who will be appearing in the Czech Republic for the very first time. There will be also workshops of contemporary circus techniques, juggling, drumming, drawing and other activities both for adults and children.
The organizers from the Žonglér association created the program from ingredients ofr all age groups. “This year, the highlight attraction is a concert of 100°,” states Jiří Misař, the chairman of the Žonglér association. The audience can also look forward to a performance by the Bohemian Betyars band whose music is influenced by its home town of Budapest. Just as the capital of Hungary mixes various styles of architecture, Bohemian Betyars boldly fuse such musical genres as speed folk, Balcan rhythms, ska and punk rock. The highlights of the program include Babar Luck, a Muslim Pakistani-born feminist living in the UK. Plzeň will see its first ever performance of Mydy Rabycad, a Czech electro-swing band, and MC Oliver Lowe will present a hip-hop set with DJ Flux. Contemporary circus performance include a production by the juggling duo of Maxim Vanhove and Romain Verstaete from La Compagnie Du Cirque Improbable, France.
