New performance 2019

Cirkus Cirkör’s next performance will be created by The (Super) Secret Dream Team.

Cirkus Cirkörs, Stora Teatern, Södra Teatern and Kulturhuset Finspång (Cirkusslottet) are very happy to announce that we have reached a unanimous decision in the open call project to create Cirkus Cirkör’s next touring performance. The interest has been overwhelming. We received more than 70 fantastic replies from all continents except Antarctica, and it has been a tough task for us to select only one of the contributions.

During the selection process we have tried to keep a few things in mind. Above all, we want to promote the growth of contemporary circus and emerging artistry. We also need a production that can easily tour everywhere, indoors as well as outdoors. The aim is to create a performance that is suited for all ages, children as well as adults and teenagers.

The group that we have chosen is The (Super) Secret Dream Team. They consist of the teeterboard trio Team Red Pants (Philomène Perrenoud, Jarno Polhuijs and Felix Greif), the hand to hand duo Analouge Acrobatics (Elisabeth Künkele and Ben Collis) plus rope artist Sofia Mendez. Both Team Red Pants and Analogue Acrobatics graduated from DOCH in 2018 and Sophia Mendez came out of Codarts Circus Arts in 2016.

The team will be directed by Julien Auger and Sade Kamppila from Circus I Love You.

We see this as a very exciting and highly promising constellation that share our vision to change the world through contemporary circus. The show will be testimony to the joy, wonder and world changing power of circus. We look forward to the upcoming months of collaboration! The premiere will take place in Linköping in the middle of August, 2019.
