SAISON DE CIRQUE - New show 2018

Building on the extraordinary tour of their ‘two man show’: “For Better or for Worse”, Victor and Kati went off to encounter others: other paths, other artists, other moods, other worlds for their new creation, Circus Season.
Happy to summon artists of heart, old acquaintances, remarkable artists and true “milk brothers”,
they invited along their circus, and recount to us their very essence: spectacular numbers, magnificent
and funny, and artists of excellence who convey the story of their bodies of their circus
number, and of their slice of circus life.
During, before and after the rehearsals; during, before and after the performances, this life dedicated
to the circus is related in its raw state; Together, united and raised up by a burning energy, the artists defy the laws of nature, those of bodies and weight.
Endlessly teased by an unusual Auguste embodied by Kati Pikkarainen with whimsical strength, the
family of a Circus Season bring us to the doors of a new and indefinable circus; that of a new
ancient circus; which delivers us here, the beautiful intimacy of this life dedicated to the ring.


Out on the 27th of june 2018, at the Festival des Nuits de Fourvière, in Lyon (France).
