- Premiere for the new performance BLOOM

photo: Mats Bäcker

In this new Cirkus Cirkör performance you’re invited to a world of flowers, classical music and jaw dropping circus. An international cast of five multi talented artists sets out to change the world through joy, risk assessment and facing fears. As the artists fly through the air on teeterboard, swing in trapezes and ropes, lift each other, do pair acrobatics and mouth hang, they embody the soul of circus: That you don’t have to give in to normalcy, different is good, you should be as unique as you feel. Let yourself bloom!

BLOOM is directed by Julien Auger and Sade Kamppila from Circus I Love You. For full credits and contact information - please read here.
