Diana Benneweis

The Danish circus queen leaves her circus Benneweis and will handle the business over to her twins Nadia and Dawid. Nadia and Dawid are only 20 years old witch will make them one of the youngest directors ever for a full size circus. Nadia and Dawid Benneweis will not take over the whole circus from one day to the next but over a few years. The next period will Nadia and Dawid learn about the business so they are ready to take over in a few years. Diana Benneweis will be 60 years later this year and she has been running circus Benneweis since her father died in 1993.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Den Danske cirkus Dronning Diana Benneweis har besluttet at overdrage hendes cirkus til tvillingerne Nadia og Dawid Bennewis. Nadia og Dawid er kun 20 år gamle, hvilket vil gøre dem til de yngste cirkus direktører nogensinde for et internationalt cirkus. Nadia og Dawid vil ikke overtage cirkus fra den ene dag til den anden men overdragelsen vil ske over en kort år række. I det næste stykke tid vil Nadia og Dawid komme i intens lære så de er klar til at overtage mors forretning indenfor kort tid. Diana Benneweis bliver selv 60 senere i år og hun har været direktør i Benneweis siden sin fars død i 1993.

Circus Dannebrog 2007

Dannebrog are ready with their program and the last contract is just signed. Director Haddie Enoch has put together a very strong program, maybe the best ever, and we can all look forward to a very nice performance. Back in Dannebrog is the flying Michaels as we could see in the 2006 program. The Flying Michaels is a great flying trapeze act and Haddie Enoch secured a contract with this Brazilian troupe before the season in 2006 was ending.

 

From USA and for the first time in Denmark Dannebrog presents the comic artists the Quiddlers. It is a very special act where two normal grown men are dressed like dwarfs. The act is very hard to describe but one of their best entrée´s from this reprise duo is the Micro Jackson act, a parody on the real Michael Jackson. Very special and very entertaining. The Quiddlers has been in Scandinavia before where they performed in the Norwegian circus Arnardo in the 2005 season.

 

Curotola covers over the two Italian brothers Guiseppe and Emanuel and a very strong man to man act. Curatola is absolutely not unknown in Scandinavia and has been presented a single time in Norway where they performed for circus Agora in 2000 and in the Swedish circus Maximum for the season in 1997. Last time seen in Scandinavia was in 2001, where they performed on the open air stage in Tivoli garden in Copenhagen. Those Scandinavians who went to Germany in 2005 for a visit in the German circus Roncalli would remember those fantastic brothers. They are very elegant artists, nice dressed and the act has a very nice and smooth tempo.

 

Jimmy Enoch, grand child to circus Director Enoch will show the Enoch family traditions, with a bicycle act. Jimmy is so far not sure what he will do but Jimmy is extremely talented both on the ordinary bike and the mono bike as well. Last year Jimmy started the season with his father, Dennie Enoch” but he was injured after a few months and Jimmy was forced to continue without his father. Jimmy has a lot of acts to choose from and the glass balance act on mono bike is one of many acts to choose from.

Katja Enoch, daughter of Director Haddie Enoch will once again be in charge for the horse act.

 

 Curatola brothers are not the only Italian artists in this performance. The new elephant act comes from the fantastic Circus Errani. In charge of those giants is the young and talented – Elvis Errani. The family has their own circus in Italy, a circus in a very high level. Most people remember Elvis two cousins the Errani brothers winning a medal in Monaco circus festival in 2004 with one of the best Icarian games act in the world. Lately those two brothers are seen in the German circus Krone. Circus Errani tours at the moment together with another Italian circus – Normally it was those brothers performing with the elephants in Circus Errani but because of their huge success with their Icarian act they has been contracted outside Italy.

 

Elvis Errani and the three Indian elephants is not the only Errani family member in Dannebrog 2007 The very beautiful Zeudi Errani with a very visual antipode act. This act is performed on a motorbike and juggling with basketballs. Piscella Errani presents a nice hola hoop act.

 

There will be two juggling acts in this program and the first is also from the Errani family and presented by Moressa Marco.

 

A Dannebrog performance with no clowns wouldn’t be a real Dannebrog performance and this year Haddie Enoch has found the clowns in Spain. Nicols is traditional clowns and they will be in the ring with a low wire act and juggling act as well.

 

Marcello from flying Michaels will have a second entrée in this season, where he will present a Rola Rola act.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Det Danske circus Dannebrog er klar med deres 2007 sommer program og de sidste kontrakter er nyligt blevet underskrevet. Direktør Haddie Enoch har samlet et meget flot og stærkt program til denne sæson, muligvis det bedste i Dannebrogs historie. Endnu en sæson for de Brasilianske – Flying Michaels, som vi også havde fornøjelsen af i sæson 2006. Flying Michaels hører absolut til i den gode ende af flyvende trapez numre og Haddie Enoch sikrede derfor endnu en kontrakt med denne trup allerede før sæson afslut 2006.

 

Fra USA og for første gang i Danmark præsenterer Dannebrog de komiske reprise klovne The Quiddlers. Dette er et meget specielt nummer, hvor 2 normal størrelse mænd optræder som dværge. Et nummer der er utroligt svært at beskrive – Det skal ses – men efter min mening er deres bedste entrée hvor de optræder som Micro Jaskson – en tro kopi i mini format af pop idolet Michael Jackson. The Quiddlers er meget specielle og meget underholdende. Det er ikke første gang af denne duo er i Skandinavien, da de var en del af det Norske cirkus Arnardo i sæson 2005.

 

Curotola dækker over to Italienske brødre Guieseppe og Emanuel med et meget stærkt og flot parterre nummer (Man to man). Disse fantastiske brødre er bestem ikke ukendte i Skandinavien da de første gang blev set her i Norden i cirkus Maximum ( 97). I 2000 dukkede blev de igen set og denne gang i det Norske cirkus Agora. Året efter var det Danskernes tur, hvor de kunne opleves på udendørs scenen i Tivoli.  I 2005 var det Tyske cirkus Roncalli tæt på den Danske grænse, hvor det igen var muligt at opleve disse meget dygtige artister. Curotola er meget elegante artister, nydelige i tøjet og med et tempo fyldt nummer.

 

Jimmy Enochs, barnebarn til Direktør Haddie Enoch, vil endnu engang videre føre familiens cykel artist traditioner. Jimmy ved endnu ikke hvilket cykel nummer han vil optræde med men da Jimmy er utrolig dygtig både på et hjulet og almindelig cykel er der flere entreér at vælge imellem. Sidste sæson startede Jimmy op sammen med sin far men en sprængt akillessene, endte Dennie Enochs sæson. Derfor måtte nummeret laves om og Jimmy optrådte i stedet med sin kæreste – Melanie Kaselovsky, som partner.

 

Hestene vil endnu engang blive præsenteret af Katja Enoch. Sidste år blev vi præsenteret for et nummer i flot sigøjner stil med både frihedsdressur, samt det velkendte nummer – Stor og lille hest.

 

Curotola brødrene er ikke de eneste Italienske artister på programmet, da Dannebrog har skrevet kontrakt med flere medlemmer fra det store cirkus Errani. Cirkus Errani er et yderst velkendt familie cirkus, der måske ikke er så kendt i Danmark. Cirkus Errani har i denne sæson slået sig sammen med et andet stort Italiensk cirkus. Grunden er den store succes Fratelli Errani har med deres Ikariske lege nummer og derfor har fået kontrakter rundt i Europa. (i øjeblikket cirkus Krone i Tyskland). Det var netop disse brødre der optrådte i cirkus Errani med deres 3 Indiske elefanter. Da de nu har travlt andre steder i verden har deres fætter Elvis Errani på kun 17 år overtaget dette flotte dyre nummer og som nu vil blive præsenteret i cirkus Dannebrog. Også fra Errani familien kommer den meget smukke Zeudi Errani med et flot og elegant antipode nummer. Dette nummer bliver præsenteret på en motorcykel hvor hun jonglerer med blandt andet basketballs.

 

Piscella Errani vil desuden præsentere et nydeligt hola hop act.

   

Der vil i denne sæson blive præsenteret ikke mindre end to jonglør numre. Det ene nummer kommer ligeledes fra Errani familien og bliver præsenteret af Moressa Marco.

 

Ingen Dannebrog forestilling uden traditionelle klovne der i denne sæson bliver præsenteret af de Spanske Nicols. Nicols står også bag to andre numre i årets forestilling, nemlig et low wire nummer samt et jonglør nummer.

 

Marcello fra Flying Michaels vil i denne sæson også forsøge sig med noget mere jordnært og vil præsentere et elegant Rola Rola nummer.

The Danish clown BonBon and his wife Tiina was the only artists representing Scandinavia here in the just ended Monaco circus festival 2007. Lots of prices was given out, 50 in all to only 15 different acts making it hard not to win something. BonBon and Tiina was the winner of Prix Special ZPRDE Varsorvie a price from the state circus in Poland. Circus Scandinavia congratulates BonBon and Tiina and look forward to see them again in the circus Arena summer tour 2007.

 

Here are some pictures of BonBon in Monaco 2007

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Den Danske klovn BonBon og hans partner Tiina var de eneste artister der repræsenterede Skandinavien I den nu afsluttede Monaco circus festival 2007. Store mængder af priser var uddelt, 50 i alt fordelt til kun 15 forskellige numre, gjorde det vanskeligt ikke at vinde en pris. BonBon og Tiina var de glade vindere af Prix Special ZPRDE Varsorvie en pris detr uddeles af det Polske stat cirkus. Cirkus Scandinavia lykønsker BonBon og Tiina og ser frem til at møde dem igen i cirkus Arena sommer turne 2007.

Circus Arena

There are rumours in the circus buisness saying the Danish circus Arena will tour in Austria in 2007. The rumour says that it is the Austrian and former circus Althoff Jacobi director - Adolf Lehner there is behind the tour. Circus Scandinavia can tell that there is nothing about those rumours because circus Arena will not tour in Austria in 2007.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Der er rygter i øjeblikket I cirkus branchen omkring at det Danske cirkus Arena vil tage på turne I Østrig. Rygterne fortæller også at det skulle være den forhenværende Cirkus Althoff Jacobi direktør Adolf Lehner der skulle stå bag denne turne. Cirkus Scandinavia kan dog afkræfte dette rygte og fortælle at en sådan tur ikke er planlagt.

INFO Italian circus Fans.

 

January 11th.

Arlette Gruss.

The French circus Arlette Gruss are ready with a brand new show starting in Bordeaux January 20th. The new show is called Pile ou Face and should be very spectacular. One of the acts in the new show is the Italian Guidi brothers with a fantastic reputation for their Icarian game act. The Scandinavians could see those brothers when the German circus Flic Flac was on a short visit in Kiel, close to the Danish border. The Norwegian had the pleasure in 2004 where they were a part of circus Merano.

 

Another French circus Pinder can present three known acts seen in Scandinavia the recent years. The very thrilling knife and crossbow act – The Italian couple, The Jasters could be seen last time in Scandinavia working in the Norwegian circus Arnardo (2005). The Russian illusionist Shamarlovski could be seen in Benneweis in 2004 and The German Diablo artist – Alexander Xelo, with his very modern entrée was a part of the Danish circus arena in 2004.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Det Franske cirkus Arlette Gruss er klar med et helt nyt show, der har premiere d. 20. januar 2007 i Bordeaux. Det nys show har fået navnet Pile ou face og ser ud til at blive yderst spektakulært. Et af disse numre i det nye show er de Italienske brødre med et helt fantastisk omdømme for deres Ikariske lege entrere. Tilskuere i Skandinavien havde chancen for at se dette nummer, da det Tyske cirkus Flic Flac gæstede Kiel tæt på den Danske grænse. I Norge havde man chancen da brødrene var en del af cirkus Merano i 2004.

 

Et andet Fransk cirkus, kan nu præsentere hele 3 numre der har været i Skandinaviske cirkus de senere år. Det meget farlige kniv og armbrøst præsenteret af de Italienske artister – The Jasters. Dette par kunne ses i det Notrske cirkus Arnardo i 2005. Den Russiske illusionist Sharmalovski ses i det Danske cirkus Benneweis i 2004 og den Tyske diablo artist – Alexander Xelo i cirkus Arena i 2004. Det er i øvrigt Alexander Xelos helt store drøm at blive klovn og han er yderst tiltrukket af de komiske entreer. Alexander har derfor studeret alt hvad der næsten findes af gamle videoer, DVD og andet materiale der kan findes om klovne. Cirkus Scandinavia hjalp i 2004 Alexander med en kortlægning af hvad der findes i Skandinavien omkring udsendelser og forestillinger, hvori der findes klovne. Dette skal bruges som studium for det ultimative klovne nummer når Alexander end dag er klar.

      News from ECA.

 

 

 

Important Update on New European Regulations concerning Circus Animals

By - Laura van der Meer - Brussels representative ECA

 

  

Dear ECA Member or Collaborator:

 

In our most recent newsletter (ECA Information Volume 5 no. 3) we informed you about new European regulations concerning animals. PLEASE NOTE THAT ECA IS WAITING FOR LETTERS AND DOCUMENTS TO CONFIRM the information presented below.  DUE TO THE HOLIDAYS, IT MAY BE SEVERAL MORE DAYS OR EVEN LONGER UNTIL WE HAVE THE NECESSARY CONFIRMATION.

 

We are pleased to provide you with the following updated information:

 

·         Legal Case against Austria:  As reported, the European Commission decided on 12 December 2006 to close – for political reasons -  the legal case it has opened against Austria concerning its ban on non-domesticated animals in the circus.  In anticipation of the closure, the ECA filed a complaint with the European Ombudsman alleging maladministration (because of the responsible Commissioner’s promises to Austrian activists to close the case).  ECA is extremely pleased to inform you that the Ombudsman has decided to open an inquiry into this matter and has prepared a letter that will be sent to the European Commission demanding the complete file of the case and an explanation as to why the case was closed.  The Commission will have until the end of March to respond and the ECA will be permitted to react to the Commission’s response.  The Ombudsman will decide what action to take (ranging from no action to requiring the Commission to reinstate the case against Austria) based on these documents.

 

·         Animal Transport:  As we previously reported, a new regulation on animal transport takes effect on 5 January 2005.   This regulation applies only to those engaged in transport as part of “economic activity.”   As discussed at the Paris ECA meeting, ECA believes that the regulation should NOT be applicable to circuses because its provisions are unjustified in the circus context, because there is no legal basis for the Commission to apply such rules to circuses, and because the circus industry was not consulted, nor was an analysis undertaken concerning the impact of the regulation on circuses.  While different countries are interpreting the regulation differently (some believe it applies to circuses), we are pleased to report that our Commission contacts have informed us that the regulation is NOT intended to apply to circuses.

 

·         Animal Health Passport:  The new system requiring registration of circus animals and use of passports with animal health information to cross borders within the European Union takes effect 1 January 2007.  As expected, our efforts to delay implementation – due to the fact that the Member States have not yet prepared the necessary documents, etc. – have not been successful (it is not possible to delay the entry into force of a European law).  However, the European Commission is sympathetic to our concerns and intends to send a letter to all of the European Member States to tell them that if they have not yet properly established the passport system, they should not block movements of circuses.  The Commission will send us a copy of this letter and also will provide us with contact points in every country.

 

In the meantime, anyone intended to move to another country in the next few years should send a letter to their official veterinarian or other official government contact asking to be registered. The purpose of this is to obtain a written acknowledgement from the government to demonstrate that you have carried out your responsibilities under the regulation, even if the Member State is unprepared to register you.  With such a letter, you should be able to avoid being blocked from movement.  Please remember that registration should occur or at least be requested more than 40 days before the first time the circus crosses a national border after 1 January 2007.

European circus Festival de Liége

Lots of circus festivals at the moment and one of them is the European circus Festival de Liége. The festival is just ended and in the competition the two best results was two acts there was seen in Scandinavian circuses in 2006. The fist price was given to Duo Sifolinis and their breath taking wheel of death act. Sifolinis could be seen in Norway in 2006 where they was apart of Circus Merano. On the second place came Fausto Scorpio and their very charming Icarian came act. Fausto Scorpio could be seen in 2006 in the Swedish circus Maximum. The Scandinavians will have a second chance to see this act, because the trio will be a part of the Danish circus Benneweis for the 2007 summer season.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Mange cirkus festivaler på denne tid af året rundt i Europa og en af dem er den Europæiske cirkus festival i Liége (Belgien). Denne fine festival er lige sluttet og i konkurrencen var de 2 bedste resultater to numre der begge kunne ses i Skandinaviske cirkus i 2006. Den bedste pris blev givet til Dou Sifolinis og deres meget hårrejsende døds hjul nummer. Dette nummer kunne ses i det Norske cirkus Merano i sæson 2006. På andenpladsen kom Fausto Scorpio og deres charmerende Icarin nummer. Fausto Scorpio var en del af cirkus Maximum i Sverige 2006. Tilskuere i Skandinavien kan i øvrigt få fornøjelsen af dette nummer endnu engang, da de vil være på turne med det Danske cirkus Benneweis, i den kommende 2007 sæson

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Circus Baldoni

Circus Baldoni did not have a great success for their Christmas circus in Copenhagen. Therefore has René and Thessa Baldoni decided not to have tented circus in Copenhagen for the next Christmas. Instead will Baldoni make an indoor performance and tour in sports arenas and culture houses. It will be a full performance including a ring and artists.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Cirkus Baldoni havde ikke den store succes med deres julecirkus I København. Derfor har direktør parret René og Thessa Baldoni besluttet ikke at gentage julecirkus som en telt forestilling. I stedet vil de lave julecirkus i sports haller og kulturhuse rundt i landet. Det vil være en ”rigtig” forestilling med manege og artister mm.

January 7th.

 

Mario Beourosek

The extremely fast juggler Mario Beourosek can be found in the Danish circus Benneweis for the 2007 season. Marios Brother Robert Beourosek will be in another circus – circus Arena. Mario has won a lot of prices for his super speed juggling and he was a part of the German circus Krone in many years (2002 -2005).

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Den ekstremt hurtige jonglør, Mario Beourosek kan findes I det Danske circus Benneweis I den kommende sæson 2007. Marios bror, Robert Beourosek vil være at finde i et andet Dansk cirkus, hvor han skal arbejde som overordnet regissør og plads chef. Mario har vundet en lang række priser for hans super hurtige jonglør nummer og han var i en årrække en del af det Tyske cirkus Krone (2002- 2005).

New animals

Circus Arena in Denmark has bought four new zebra baby’s (8 months) and 4 very young Alpacas (small Lamas). The animals will be a part of a new act with the dromedaries. Tim Delbousq is the trainer in Arena and he will start the training very soon and present the new act in 2008.

 

In Scandinavian:

January 6th.

Circus Skratt

Spectators going to circus Skratt in Sweden can look forward to a fantastic comic act. The reason is that Circus Arena Director Benny Berdino (deliver artists to Skratt)has signed a contract with the very comic couple, Agnes Nemeth and Roland Dittmar. The act is called big and small and normally we will think of the horse act with the same name but here it is a human act. Agnes Nemeth is more than 2 meters in height and Roland Dittmar is just a small guy. Lots of really funny situations can be seen done by this married couple. Agnes has a background as a professional basketball player and has played more that 350 basketball matches for the Hungarian national team. At the moment the couple performs in the German circus Flic Flac and a few years ago they were seen in the Danish circus Krone.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Tilskueerer der I år vil købe billetter til det Svenske cirkus Skratt kan se frem til et helt fantastisk komisk nummer. Grunden er at cirkus Arena direktør Benny Berdino (leverer artister til Skratt) har skrevet kontrakt med det komiske par Agners Nemeth og Roland Dittmar. Nummeret bliver kaldt stor og lille, hvor vi normalt tænker på det kendte heste nummer af samme navn, er dette nummer kun med mennesker. Agnes Nemeth er mere end 2 m i højden og Roland Dittmar er en ganske lille af vækst. Dette giver mange helt utroligt morsomme situationer leveret af dette ægte par.

Eddy Carello

The fantastic juggler Eddy Carello as we could see in 2006 performing in Circus Dannebrog will in 2007 perform in circus Noch in Switzerland. Eddy Carello is in my opinion one of the most entertaining jugglers in Europe.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Den helt fantastiske jonglør Eddy Carello, som kunne ses I det Danske cirkus Dannebrog i 2006 har skrevet kontrakt med cirkus Noch. Eddy Carello er efter min mening en af de mest underholdende jonglører i Europa.

Circus Benneweis.

 Duo Bobylev has been signed to the Danish circus Benneweis for the new season 2007. Duo Bobylev was a part of the Norwegian circus Mernao in 2006. This married Russian clown couple is really typical Russian clowns performing a lot of original material. When they performed in Merano last year, it was their first time in Scandinavia and especially their table tennis act, where Alexej plays this game with his mouth was just great. Also the living Grand piano entree was nice. Before the season in Merano duo Bobylev was a part of Tony Hopkins production in circus Billy Smarts in England.

 

Also contracted to Benneweis is the Russian dog trainer Diana Vedjaschkina. Diana performs a wonderful act with small Dax dogs a kind of dog there is very hard to train. Anyway the young and very beautiful Russian girl present an act where we will se them dancing waltz.

 

After 2 seasons in Benneweis, Adriana Folco and her elephant Baby are replaced with another elephant act. The new act is presented by the Gartner family.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Duo Bobylev har skrevet kontrakt med det Danske circus Benneweis for den kommende sæson 2007. Duo Bobylev var en del af det Norske cirkus Merano i 2006. Det Russiske klovne ægtepar er virkelig eksponenter for den Russiske klovne tradition med et kæmpe udvalg af særdeles morsomme og meget originale entreer. Da de sidste år optrådte i Merano, var det deres første optræden her i Skandinavien. Specielt deres bordtennis entree, hvor Alexej spiller imod Olga, hvor han alene skyder bolde med munden. Også det meget levende flygel får en hoved rolle i et noget specielt musikalsk indslag fra denne enestående duo.

 

Også på kontrakt I den kommende sæson er Den Russiske Hunde træner Diana Vedjaschkina. Diana optræder med et meget fint og smukt gravhunde nummer, et hunde race der faktisk er meget svær at træne. Alligevel vil den meget unge Russiske pige optræde med disse hunde hvor de blandt andet optræder med en elegant vals.

 

Efter 2 sæsoner i Benneweis, er Adriana Folco og hendes elefant Baby blevet skiftet med et andet elefant nummer. Det nye elefant nummer i Benneweis bliver præsenteret af Gartner familien.

Circus Baldoni

Not all artists have been contracted to Baldoni 2007 yet but some are. Mombassa boys from Kenya will show us traditional African skills as Limbo and power acrobat acts. Special for this troupe is acrobatic acts on two vertical poles. This troupe is not the same as we could see in the 2004 season.

 

From Italy comes the clown duo I Baccala – Simone and Camilla are two very nice slapstick clowns with a highly mimic presentation. I Baccala have been in some nice circus in Europe as Fligenpilz and Manege (Both in Germany)

 

The Barbie family will present a new act this year and this time it is a cube juggling act.

 

The Baldonis presented in 2006 a very nice illusion act and René and Thessa Baldoni will develop a new act for the new season. The last artists will be contracted in a few weeks.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Ikke alle artister er klar for den nye 2007 sæson I circus Baldoni men en del numre er dog på plads. Det drejer sig om Mombassa boys fra Kenya som vil vise traditionelle Afrikanske akrobat numre som Limbo og power akrobatik. Specielt for denne trup, som ikke er identisk med det nummer der var med i 2004, er et nummer på 2 vertikale master.

 

Fra Italien komme klovne duoen I Baccala som dækker over navnene Simone og Camilla. Denne duo repræsenterer den moderne klovne stil med dybde og atmosfære. Samtidig kan denne duo optræde med en lang række af entreer alle i en stil der passer perfekt til Baldoni.

 

Det er nok ikke en overraskelse at The Barbie family er med i endnu en sæson. De har nemlig været en del af cirkus Baldoni fra starten i 2002. I år kommer de med 2 nye entreer, hvor vi blandt andet kan se familien jonglere med cubes.

 

Det var første gang at direktør parret Thessa Daniella og René Marvin viste et illusions nummer i sæson 2006. Det var vi mange der havde ventet på, da René har en lang karriere bag sig som illusionist. Det er derfor glædeligt at parret vil præsentere et nyt nummer i 2007.

 

De sidste artister vil blive offentliggjort på denne side i løbet af få uger.

Nice year for circus Scandinavia

It has been a nice year for circus Scandinavia with lots of nice moments in circuses around in Europe. There have been a lot of fantastic moments and I will look back on the 2006 season as the best for Circus Scandinavia. Circus Scandinavia has in 2006 made pictures for a nice range of circuses as Arnardo in Norway, Wictoria in Sweden, Martin Hanson in Holland, Circus Dannebrog, Baldoni, Charlie Christmas performance and Roskilde Christmas circus all in Denmark and I will hope that 2007 will give Circus Scandinavia more jobs in the business.

 

In 2007 circus Scandinavia will offer artist DVD´s in a very nice quality – Circus Scandinavia have already made a few and now is the quality is so good, that we can offer a production far away from the normal cost for a full DVD. We can offer a total concept with prints on cover and DVD and of cause pictures in top quality. We are also writing music to avoid problems with any copyrights.

In Scandinavian:

 

Det har været et meget fint år for cirkus Scandinavia med mange dejlig stunder i Skandinaviske og Europæiske cirkus. Det har været rigtig mange fantastiske oplevelser og jeg vil derfor se tilbage på 2006 som den bedste sæson siden starten i 2002. Cirkus Scandinavia har i 2006 lavet billeder for en lang række af cirkus som Arnardo i Norge, Wictoria i Sverige, Martin Hansons vinter cirkus i Holland, Cirkus Dannebrog, Baldoni, Charlie jule show og Roskilde julecirkus alle i Danmark og jeg håber at 2007 vil give mere arbejde for cirkus.

 

I 2007 kan Cirkus Scandinavia tilbyde artist DVDér i en høj kvalitet. Cirkus Scandinavia har allerede lavet nogle få men nu er kvaliteten så god, at vi kan tilbyde en professionel produktion, langt fra den pris der anses som normal. Vi kan tilbyde et fuldt koncept med DVD – tryk på DVD og cover samt selvfølgelig billeder i top kvalitet. Vi kan også producere musikken på disse DVD´er for at undgå problemer med copyrights.
