Pink samurai

Burki & com.


Forget about Jackie Chan. This is a purely Czech samurai, inspired by children between Prague and the Beskydy Mountains. 

They asked more than three hundred children between Prague and the Beskydy Mountains to write or draw who their hero was. Then they read all the stories, looked at the pictures and created the Pink Samurai. A story about all of us, created thanks to the purest view of children. Sometimes someone fights a giant in it, sometimes people sing in it, sometimes something spins, but everyone always dances in it.

Jana Burkiewicz, a native of Opava, created a dance acrobatic performance for the whole family with her group BURKI & COM . The fact that the Pink Samurai is responsible for the renowned Czech designer Maxim Velčovský also confirms that this will be a real spectacle.

What does director Jana Burkiewicz say about the Pink Samurai?

"I was a little afraid that we would be overwhelmed by supermen and spidermans, but that didn't really happen. Children are much more likely to see their family, the strong personalities of our history, doctors and often themselves as heroes to be able to withstand the pressure of a system they appreciate. performance and leaves no room for error. "
