My!Laika is a circus company founded in 2009 to create absurd and
tridimensional collages of movement, music and image. Their shows
are the results of long and twisted association chains, bedding their
circus disciplines and music affections into a context of an amoral
theatre, avoiding linear narration and immediate comprehension.
The first show Popcorn Machine, after the commencement with the decoration of Jeunes Talents Cirque Europe 2010, tours in theatres and Big Tops all over Europe.
The review of Lyn Gardner for The Guardian in occasion of their show at London Mime Festival (Queen Elisabeth Hall, Southbank) attests that in their “ ...cunning creations of chaos, the mess is expertly controlled, the clumsiness deliberate: in reality these performers are highly skilled, not just in circus but also on various instruments. Their physicality explodes across the stage as if it cannot be contained... ”.
The company plays in prestigious contexts like Avignon, Grec in Barcelona, Circo-Teatro Price in Madrid, Festival de las Artes in Valparaiso, Circa in Auch and numerous national theatres.
However, My!Laika constantly dedicates the play to alternative scenes touring Fusion and At.tension Festival | Berlin, CircusPhera | Belgrade, Circorama | Zagreb, Mischto | Nancy, Jetlag Festival | Amsterdam, Valdemone Festival | Sicily and many others.
The second project Kunst-Cirque of the company My!Laika is the creation
of a circus tent: Side kunst-cirque 2014.
Entirely self-produced, the circus continues to travel Europe hosting Popcorn Machine in a Big Top version, creating and staging their new shows: Dekalè 2014, Radio Tagada 2015, Stupid Palace 2017.
My!Laika is currently finalizing four shows of different dimensions: Laerte 2018, Full Out 2019, Domoi 2019 and Duet 2019
Parallel to their artistic activities, the company is organizing events like: Jetlag Festival (Itinerant) and No Theater (Tuscany).
