Inside Out

A tribute performance to the circus created with a warm beating circus heart, technical skill and live music. Premiere: 2008.

About Inside Out

A performance about fear and trust, about daring to throw yourself into the unknown - a dizzying circus drama about daring more than you dare.

We follow two people who are afraid of failure and who live within the narrow framework of security. When they meet a circus troupe full of deformed, odd but also magical and warm characters, their lives are put on hold and a dizzying journey takes off.

The show is produced in close collaboration with brain researchers and doctors at Karolinska Institutet. On stage, an international ensemble consisting of 7 of the world's leading contemporary circus artists and the Swedish rock band Irya's Playground participates.

Magic, love and circus

Inside Out was a phenomenal hit in Stockholm and became one in a row of Cirkus Cirkör productions to tour extensively abroad.
