Cirkör's digital circus

Show must go on(line)

As the Corona virus stops us from performing live on our regular stages, we are exploring a new stage: Streaming. During April and May, we will post full length recordings of some of our most beloved performances, mixed with short clips that inspire circus training at home during the quarantine.
As you all know circus is best experienced live, and we can’t wait to perform it live for you again. We want to entertain you, inspire you, make you think and feel that everything is possible. And the best way of doing that is to meet you in real life!

Circus Cirkör as well as many circus artists are struggling because of the corona crisis.

SHORT CIRCUS CLIPS

Wear it like a crown - Into a circus mind

View in full screen mode

As Wear it like a crown toured the world, an idea began to emerge. An idea of an artistic film based on the characters' emotional lives and dreams. The film wanted to show the character's development from the performance to another context outside the stage and beyond the performance's fixed frameworks, structures and limitations. The result was an artistic and emotional, sound and music driven short film.

Wear it like a crown - Into a circus mind.
A film by: Johan Bååth
Based on a concept by: Tilde Björfors.

Circus artists:
Jesper Nikolajeff
David Eriksson
Fouzia "Fofo" Rakez
Henrik Agger
Louise Bjurholm
Manda Rydman
