Wear it like a crown

Chaos and order are explored and risks are transformed into opportunities. A performance about choosing to proudly carry our failures, fears and shortcomings as a crown.

Wear It Like A Crown

On a revolving stage, the circus performers move through a world of illusions, shadow play, knife throwing, acrobatics, juggling and drama.

Six odd characters, feeling like they are the loneliest on earth, wrestle with their own dilemmas. Every character has his or her own way of trying to reach the others, through ping pong balls and suction cups, among other things.

In Wear it like a crown, the director and circus director Tilde Björfors continues to examine the big questions in life in relation to the world of circus. This show has been created in an attempt to understand the chaotic order of the right cerebral hemisphere.

Circus with magic and a heart

Wear it like a crown is the final part in Cirkus Cirkör’s trilogy about the body. The first part, 99% unknown, took the audience on a journey inside the body among cells and neurons. Inside out follows the heart, and Wear it like a crown seeks order in the collisions between the left and right cerebral hemispheres.
