‘It is a beautiful and original story when puppets, music, and film play together in a fable over life and death.’  

Politiken, Denmark

 

A battle between the good and the evil

Macabre, funny - It all happens in a circus

 

Circus Funestus is an apocalyptic love comedy that puppets, movies, music and transformative effects create a comical and magical universe for the audience.  The story follows the happenings at a circus after its microscopic hero, Mr. Flea declares his love to the adorable elephant in the circus during the performance.  This love declaration makes the evil villain, Mr. Whip, become mad of jealousy and conspire with a bunch of evil props to take over the circus.  What was once a circus show is now a power struggle between the good and the evil, a fight for life and death...for saving the lover and the circus.  The programme was premiered in Denmark and was taken on tour to Italy, France, Spain and Russia.

 

Performed in English with Chinese and English surtitles
