World Cultures Festival 2019: “Limits” by Cirkus Cirkör

25 October - 26 October

Swedish contemporary circus show: Limits

In addition to transforming Big Top razzmatazz into an art form, contemporary circus in the Nordics has developed a distinctive aesthetic all of its own, where music, drama, dance, acrobatics, and multimedia are ingeniously integrated into perspective-widening social commentary. In Limits, Sweden’s largest cirque nouveau focuses on compassion and the global refugee crisis.

Here, those fleeing for their lives, only to be confronted with closed borders, find their counterparts in the performers’ risk-taking aerial acrobatics, teeterboard wizardry, and possibility-pushing juggling in a jaw-dropping display of physical and mental bravery, resilience, and creativity.

A galvanising production offering an inspirational route to fresh understanding on displacement, barriers, and the essence of humanity.
