Artists 2023

Action in the street

Grant Goldie

Grant Goldie presents That Man – Show. A man and his case in a world of chance and opportunity, creates a happening of interactive participation, acute absurdity and mesmerising manipulation. A wordless performance of charming virtuosity and high skill. Not merely a juggling show, more a projectile assault on Gravity. Refreshing, Engaging, Wholesome


It's while making turn her hoops around her, falling in a dizzying movement that this Grand Lady brings you into a universe filled of feats with an impressive and touching simplicity. Hoopelaï, a romantic comedy that warms up the hearts of the audience.

Her Majesty’s Secret Circus

International Comic Espionage. Agents Honeymoon and Butterfly are on a mission: save humanity with laughter, one show at a time. Wearing ridiculous action suits, they perform a spectacular fire juggling act and enlist the help of civilian sleeper agents. Then, in Operation Grand Finale, they shoot the world’s only bow and plunger high into the sky and catch it atop a giant one-wheeled stealth cycle. An amazing and hilarious spy-fi experience, Her Majesty’s Secret Circus truly has a license to thrill.


Sometimes being my superhero self and sometimes being a reincarnation of a piece of liquorice Natalie talks about the life of a circus performer and the stability or potential instability of her body. At times this body is an invincible, highly skilled and complex construction. At other times it is fragile, ephemeral and seems to be „made from sugar icing which melts at 20°“. This piece contains high level acrobatics, spoken word, electronic beats, 12 eggs and a lot of purple confetti.

Jack Wise

Magician and sword swallower. He taught himself the skills of suggestion and psychological manipulation, which gives him the appearance of being a mind reader! He can slow his heart down to less than 10 beats per minute, which has no practical use but really scares people. Because he has mastered the art of sword swallowing, Jack is one of only sixty sword swallowers in the world today. He is proud to be a member of the Sword Swallowers International Association. Many people have asked Jack as a magician how he does these things, even more people ask why? His answer is always the same ... "Because I can".

Cia Joca

Just a cup of tea. Satisfied with yourself and the world, enjoying a nice cup of hot tea and let time passing by... that's how every day could start. If there wouldn't be someone interfering again and again! "Just a Cup of Tea" is a Never Ending Story about the unusual friendship between two very different characters, using not only humour and theater, but also dance, acrobatics, cyr wheel(s), handstand-equilibristics and an artistic pole.
