"You will be amazed. The performance you will see on the stage can be called neither a traditional circus nor a dancing show nor a juggling, nor a theater play nor a musical. Argolla the 5th Element takes a bit of everything. It challenges the concept of traditional circus and proves that human body is capable of more than you think."

    Argolla didn't charm the audience by accident, SME newspaper

    "The ensemble of Argolla represents the Slovak Republic the best way possible. Their performances, which are compared to the famous Cirque du Soleil, bring about spontaneous and rapturous responses."

    The Show

    The multimedial artistic creation is a story about the search for a pure essence that interconnects everything. Argolla Gate is a portal to a mysterious land of elements, full of mystic beings. The main character Kapillo, driven by the emptiness of his soul, ventures to cross its threshold. He is accompanied by an enchantress, who presents him with 4 basic elements in their beauty, fragility, strength and cruelty. By means of them, he tries to discover the mythical 5th element mentioned in ancient texts as a pure essence, which “Gods breathed”. 


    Our team consists of 17 artists: acrobats, dancers, actors, and musician Maok. The audience has a chance to see amazing acrobatic acts (hand-to-hand acrobatics, aerial acrobatics on silk, aerial ring, flying acrobats on aerial straps, contortion, hand balancing, cyr wheel, cube juggling, fire and black light dancing), contemporary dance, musical acts, visual effects and multimedia elements.


    The full version of the performance lasts 90 minutes. The ideal setting for our show is a proscenium type of stage with a load-bearing construction for aerial acts. We are also able to carry out only fragments of the performance and adapt them to unusual conditions. 

    Let yourselves be drawn into in to this dreamland, where the story about search for the 5th element is set.
