Cirk La Putyka performs in “Slapstick Sonata.”

It’s the graveyard shift at a Prague warehouse and workers shuffle through another night. So starts “Slapstick Sonata,” performed by Cirk La Putyka, a modern Czech circus stopping by Fort Lewis College’s Community Concert Hall, 1000 Rim Dr., on Thursday, March 16. A drab evening turns into an extravaganza as laborers amp up odd hijinks to kill time.

The traveling troupe of Cirk La Putyka contains 10 members who specialize in acrobatics, puppeteering, and dance. Physical comedy and circus arts are set to the backdrop of Mozart for a performance that alternates from poetic to hilarious.

The show is at 7:30. Tickets are $29 to $39. More info at durangoconcerts.com
