Eliška Brtnická graduated from the non-verbal theatre at HAMU in Prague, where she continues her PhD studies. In 2010 she founded Cirkus Mlejn. In 2017 she attended a course of circus dramaturgy at the prestigious French school CNAC. She often works with acrobats Ilona Jäntti or Stéphanie N'Duhirahe. In recent years, she has leaned towards a visual arts conception of her performances (for example, cooperation with sculptor Čestmír Suška) as well as site-specific performance. She is the program director of the Fun Fatale International Festival.
