Combining cinematic video projections with 19th century stage-magic techniques, Kalle Nio creates mystery, unease and dark humour in this award-winning show.
Original and intriguing, new circus meets the world of visual art to explore estrangement and conflict; its teasing ambiguity reminiscent of Michelangelo Antonioni's 1960s cult movie L'Eclisse in his famous 'trilogy on modernity and its discontents'. The twisted, dreamlike soundscape is the work of composer, Samuli Kosminen, well known for his collaborations with Kronos Quartet.
Co-founded by Finnish magician/visual artist, Kalle Nio, WHS productions have toured worldwide and been important factors in the recent rise to prominence of Finnish new circus.
