VALOMATKA / THE JOURNEY OF LIGHT Once upon a time there was a city where the shadows grew and grew, where is all light going? From the shadows appear a friend to a girl who lives in that dark city and together they start a journey of light! They find more friends on their way but who actually is that friend who miraculously appear when needed? A Journey of light is a contemporary circus tale about building courage and how the smallest of us can make wonders. A Journey of Light is like a fantastic live picture book that uses light and shadows in unique way. The enchanting way story is told has animated set and some of the performers are animated, too. Together this makes the Journey of Light a wonderous trip.
