Childrenʼs Days at Pohoda – theatre, dance, miracles

Priestor Súčasného Tanca (Space for Contemporary Dance): JUMIKA

Jumika is a mysterious being that connects us with home even when we are away from it. She is everything and feels everything. The worlds are hiding in her dresses.

The miracle of spontaneous movement will be due to the performer Katarína Rampáčková and the live-act of music producer Stroon.

The favourite magician Talostan has won awards such as the Most Humorous Magic Show at Kremnické gagy ​​or the 1st place in the micro-magic in the Czech Republic, and he has especially won a number of amused and “charmed” spectators.

By the way, what pet do you think cannot be made out of a balloon...?
