About festival


KUK is a Czech word for Peek-a-boo!and also a name of a festival focusing on Theatre for Early Years.​ 

The project was founded in 2016 by Studio DAMÚZA and takes place in Prague, Czech Republic. 

Throughout the year the team of KUK is organizing series of events for the smallest ones. Performances, yoga workhops, baby circus workshops, original interactive playing objects etc. can be found at these events… All parts of the festival are prepared mainly for the children aged 10 months to 3 years old and for their parents. 

KUK helps the youngest children to discover the world around them. It develops their imagination and motoric skills.
