CircusInfo Finland organises together with Subtopia a pitch-hour with presentations of five circus shows from Finland. Presenters are invited to join the online event in Zoom on Monday September 19, 2022 at 2 pm CET. The language of the event is English. To obtain the link, please register by September 14.
The shows pitched are:
Missing is a beautiful, entertaining and sometimes even a little serious wordless contemporary circus performance for families. Its delicate balancing and marvellous partner acrobatics evoke thoughts about the importance of caring and appreciating. www.agitcirk.com/kadonnut
Through acrobatics and dance, Fragile explores the interdependencies and kinetic interactions between people. The work approaches virtuoso skill with humanity and gentleness. www.ilma-akrobaatti.fi/fragile
Meanwhile is a world that mirrors today’s culture and makes merry with all the pointless ways in which people may spend their time. It is a mix of riveting and dramatic atmospheres that combine with minimalistic comedy through juggling, object manipulation, and visual theatre. cienuua.com/performances/meanwhile
Säilättäret: Legenden om det Heliga Päronet
A mystery play that includes whimsical visual elements and absurd events that surround the festivities of four women celebrating the Holy Pear. The performance combines tightwire dancing, knife throwing, bottle-walking and archery, intertwined with live music and compelling storytelling and singing in Swedish. www.sailattaret.com
Race Horse Company: O’DD
O’DD is an adventure story of humanity at the core of gravity. It is a SciFi-inspired duet of an acrobat and a live-looping musician that takes you on a cinematic journey of ultraphysical circus. www.racehorsecompany.fi/shows/o’dd
