A bold, gravity-defying show that takes the circus out of the big top and plunges it into wild water.
Aquanauts is a show of extraordinary scale, inspired by the most encompassing feeling of them all: love. With a mix of 50 professional and amateur performers, a 50-metre-tall crane and a wild body of water, we're erupting out of the safe confines of the circus tent and making a splash in an enormous site-specific event.
Exploring the elements water, fire and air, the show explores how fellowship, togetherness and equality can help us overcome anything. The result is a poetic and magnificent experience filled with aerial and water acrobatics, and astonishing artistic swimming formations. Together, we are an incredible force for good.
Aquanauts premiered at XXX, and has been performed at the Forsgrenska Pool in Stockholm, and during the H20 festival in Jönköping, and most recently at Stockholm Cultural Festival 2018. The show has been seen by over 100,000 people so far.
