Trådar & Glas

Two circus concerts with chamber music at the Baltic Sea Festival September 3.

Trådar and Glas are two performing arts experiences beyond the ordinary. We meet jugglers, acrobats and clowns in a vivid video scenography. To chamber music by composers from the Baltic Sea region, our minds are expanded in two magical circus concerts for all people aged 3-100 years.

Trådar (threads)

Threads connect, threads repair and threads tangle. Threads can also become ropes to balance on or strings to play on. Cirkus Cirkör's poetic acrobatics and the Baltic Sea composers' chamber music meet in a playful and subtle performance where knittings from all over the world convey a message of peace.

Glas (glass)

Glass can crash, glass can clank and glass can clink. The most brittle glass can carry a whole person's weight. In a shimmering and clear world of beautiful crystal glass, broken glass, and sharp edges, Cirkus Cirkör's artists hover in a balancing act between the strong and the fragile. Machine meets body and with the help of playful video projections, we are taken on a flight.
