CLØWNS & QUEENS

The beauty of circus lies in unfathomable places
Last performances
24 th & 28 th May, Strasbourg Maillon, Wacken, Fr
CLØWNS & QUEENS is dirty circus. Clown eroticism. Humiliation as entertainment. Pre-raphaelite hoola hooping. Horizontal juggling.

An exploration into the cross over between Circus, Dance and Performance Art that pays tribute to the strange beauty of various golden ages of circus whilst deftly subverting its archetypes.

This addition to the Gandinis’ repertoire is a departure from their usual mathematical juggling obsessions; this universe is about the juggler’s body and it’s perversity, with echoes of Stanley Kubric and Frederico Fellini. 5 queens and 4 clowns in a white space with costumes designed by Gemma Banks. This is a brave show for brave audiences.

‘A constantly shifting dance of desire’ Lyn Gardner, THE GUARDIAN

‘…the risk pays off: it is in the intersection between circus, dance and madness that the most exciting living theatre comes alive.’ Edouard Launet, LIBÉRATION
