CONTEMPORARY CIRCUS IN ALL ITS DIVERSITY IN AUGUST 2017

Psychological drama inspired by the visions of 19th century magicians intertwined with dreams, illusions, acrobatics inviting the spectators to open themselves to the ultimate search for the truth, amusing indoor and outdoor shows charged with fierce spoofing for adults and families – all this will be available for everyone to experience during the contemporary circus & street art festival RE Riga! from 23 through to 25 August in Riga.

Show Départ by Finnish troupe WHS will be a good example of the state of this art in Finland. This is the story about 2 people, a couple, who experiences a state of alienation fuses new magic, theatre, dance, visual artistry and unique costume design craftsmanship.

The show 100% circus by performers Julien Auger (France) and Mikkel Hobitz (Denmark) will feature fierce spoofing and air acrobatics while hanging in braided hair, balancing on one finger, tricks with the Chinese pole, musical performance using aluminium pipes and other Monty Python worthy activities.

The company Ricochet (USA) is bringing show Smoke and Mirrors to RE Riga!. During the performance, the audience will be invited to take a journey to search for the truth with poetic acrobatics in an intense and uncompromising way thus showing the other much serious side of the contemporary circus.

For the first time this year all the indoor performances will take place in concert hall Palladium, which is the perfect venue to allow all the elements of the contemporary circus like acrobatics, music and theatre play out in all their entirety and guarantees the best enjoyment for the audience in terms of audio and visual experience.

The festival is supported by Riga City Council and State Culture Capital Foundation.
