Riga Circus presents: SVALBARD CABARET NIGHT
May 15th, Arena of Riga Circus
The internationally acclaimed circus company Svalbard (Sweden) is back with a new musical performance in the arena of the Riga Circus! Come and enjoy a completely new concept-cabaret performance by Svalbard accompanied by Salteli the Band (Great Britain). This is going to be an immersive experience, so the guests are invited to arrive early to get ready for the adventure by enjoying the goods from pop-up bar in the atmosphere created by the artists. The artists will use multitude of circus disciplines and jazz/neo soul music as tools to talk about an emotional world fostering empathy and take a witty look at themselves.
Being custom-made especially for the building and arena of the Riga Circus, the concept-cabaret project will be shown as part of the Riga Circus residency program and it will involve local artists. The performance will be shown in Riga only once. As this will be a site-specific performance, in future each show of this concept will differ from the previous one as it will be adjusted to a specific venue.
