Is a street-only performance, performed by six actors, some of whom play on stilts. A story of bizarre creatures, inspired by a Middle Ages fantasy, is full of live music, acrobatism and joggling. It's a parade thru streets full of improvisation. You don't need Czech to understand.
The story is simple. The devil is walking around with several monsters. The monsters are dreaming about freedom, furthermore, there is an angel seducing them with music all the time. The music has a special effect on them. But every time they get a chance to escape from their master, they get scared and don't run away. And why should they - the devil feeds them after the walk.
