Great season.

Circus Dannebrog reports to Circus Scandinavia, that the season so far is very very well. Very few tickets left for every performance and there has been absolutely no problems selling tickets in the warm summer weather. Also a soccer world championship to compete against has caused no problems. The same report comes from Circus Arena touring around in Denmark with their circus under water performance. Most of the performances are sold out and 2006 seems to be a record year for Arena

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Cirkus Dannebrog rapporterer til Cirkus Skandinavia, at sæsonen indtil nu har været helt fantastisk. Meget få billetter tilbage til hver forestilling og der har absolut ikke været problemer med at sælge billetter i sommer varmen. Der er også et fodbold vm at konkurrere med og heller ikke dette har kunnet mærkes.. Samme rapport kommer fra cirkus Arena der i øjeblikket turnerer rundt i Danmark med deres cirkus under vand. De fleste forestillinger er udsolgte og 2006 ser ud til at blive endnu et rekord år for Arena.

Charles Knie pictures.

Lots of circuses in the Northern part of Germany this year. In May it was circus Charles Knie visiting Lubeck and so was circus Scandinavia. We took of cause a lot of pictures outside and under the performance. Normally circus Scandinavia would have released a review including pictures shortly after. It didn’t happen this time so until then there is a few picture to enjoy. Here

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Mange cirkus i den nordlige del af tyskland i år. I maj besøgte Charles Knie Lübeck og dette gjorde cirkus Scandinavia også. Vi tog som sædvanligt mange fotos ude og af selve forestillingen. Under normale omstændigheder ville vi umiddelbart efter have skrevet en anmeldelse inklusive billeder. Det skete så ikke denne gang så indtil der kommer en anmeldelse kan man nyde et par fotos. Her.

Christmas starts earlier and earlier

Most people say that the Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year and there is something about it because Heilbronner Christmas circus has released their program for 2006. In this production there are a lot of nice artists included. The Jasters from Italy and in the Norwegian circus Arnardo in 2005 will entertain us with their very thrilling Knife and crossbow act. The M.G team will be there with a very speedy roller-skate act. M.G. Team was seen in the Danish circus Dannebrog in the 2005 season. Sherley dean – the female gentleman juggler could be seen in circus Arena back in 1997. Elvis Errani will be in charge of the elephant act. Elvis Errani comes from the famous Italian circus Errani, where it is possible to find some very fantastic artists. Last time we could see artists from this family was in 2004, when the two brothers Maycol and Guido Eranni won a gold medal in the circus festival in Monte Carlo. The two brother’s Icarian game act is one of the worlds best of its kind.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

De fleste mennesker siger at Julen kommer tidligere og tidligere hvert år og der er noget om snakken, fordi Heilbronner jule cirkus har netop frigivet deres 2006 program. I denne produktion er nogle fantastiske artister inkluderet. The Jasters fra Italien og en del af cirkus Arnardo i Norge i 2005, vil optræde med deres helt fantastiske knivkaster og armbrøst nummer.. M.G. team vil være der med deres hurtige og elegante rulle skøjte nummer. M.G. Team var en del af det Danske cirkus Dannebrog i 2005. Sherley Dean – kan kaldes den kvindelige gentleman (girl) jonglør og var en del af cirkus Arenas turne i 1997. Elvis Errani vil optræde med elefanter. Elvis Errani kommer fra den berømte cirkus Errani i Italien, hvor det er muligt at finde nogle af de fineste artister. Sidst nogle fra Errani familien udmærkede sig var i 2004, hvor de to brødre Guido og Maycol Errani vandt en guld medalje ved cirkus festivalen i Monte Carlo. De 2 brødres Icarian game nummer er et af verdens bedste.

Diana Benneweis

Circus Scandinavia is very glad to announce that, the police in Denmark have dropped all charges against the Danish circus Director – Diana Benneweis, for giving her father an overdose morphine. Diana Benneweis was charged for in mercy – killing his deadly sick father Eli Benneweis many years ago.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Politiet I Danmark har droppet alle anklager imod den Danske circus director Diana Benneweis, for at skulle have givet sin far en overdosis morfin. Diana Benneweis var anklaget for medlidenheds drap imod sin dødelige syge far Eli Benneweis for mange år siden.

Clown festival.

The international clown festival in amusment park – Bakken- (translated directly it must be “the hill”) will of cause again be held in August 10th. until August 20th. with two performances every day. As usual there will be a galla premiere (August 13th.) in the tent, where two prices will be given away.

 

The first price is the golden nose award given for an exceptional world class act and the second price is called – The world artist and clown award and is a honour price for a life long career in the clown business. The artist list is not released yet but my guess will be The German comic low wire artists – The Thuranos. This fantastic father and son artists will be a part of the clown festival 2006 and with Konrad Thuranos as the oldest working artist in the world (he is 95) it would be obvious for them to take – The world artist and clown award price.

 

Circus Scandinavia has seen the lists of clowns and we can look forward to a free show twice a day. There is no admission to “Bakken” and this very old amusement park can be found in Klampenborg a little north of Copenhagen.

If you should be interested to know more about this fantastic Thuranos duo it is possible to get the whole story on DVD. More than 2 hours of this world star couple including interviews and performance recorded in the Apollo Variety in Düsseldorf (Germany). The original sound is German but with English subtitles.

 

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Den internationale klovne festival på Bakken vil endnu engang blive afholdt fra d. 10 august til d. 30 august med 2 forestillinger hver dag. Som sædvanligt vil der blive afholdt galla forestilling i cirkus revyens telt d. 13. august. Hvor 2 priser vil blive uddelt.

 

Den første pris er den Gyldne næse, som bliver tildelt artister for en excepitionel verdens klasse nummer. Den anden pris bliver kaldt ”The world artist and clown award” og gives som en æres pris for en livs lang karriere inden for den komiske underholdning. Artist programmet er endnu ikke officielt men mit gæt på en vinder må være den Tyske komiske line danser duo – The Thuranos. Dette helt fantastiske far og søn nummer vil være en del af klovne festivalen 2006 og med konrad Thurano som den ældste nulevende aktive artist i verden (Han er over 90 år) vil det være oplagt at tildele dem – The world artist and clown – pris.

 

Circus Scandinavia har set hele program listen og vi kan igen i år se frem til gratis forestillinger med nogle helt fantastiske forestillinger 2 gange dagligt. Det er ingen entre til selve Bakken som kan findes i Klampenborg, lidt nord for København.

 

Hvis du skulle være interesseret I at vide mere om dette fantastiske artist par –The Thuranos er det muligt at få hele deres historie på DVD. Mere end 2 timer med dette verdens nummer der inkluderer interview og forestilling optaget i Apollo variete i Düsseldorf (Tyskland) Original lyden er Tysk men der findes Engelske undertekster.

Starco

Who is Starco? – Starco is a wheel and tire firm in Denmark and today was very special. The reason was that the employees in Starco should perform together or instead of the artists in Circus Dannebrog. Lots of funny situations occurred and the artists had a good laugh. A nice day for all in Dannebrog, both the artists and the for the workers in Starco On the picture you can see Eddy Carello, Isabella Enoch, Solviegh Enoch, Josephine Kasselowsky, Melanie Kasselowsky and director Haddy Enoch and a lot of others having a nice day at the circus.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Hvem er Starco? – Starco er et hjul og dæk firma fra Danmark og idag var speciel. Grunden var a de ansatte i Starco skulle optræde med eller i stedet for artisterne i cirkus Dannebrog.

Crazy about circus

The Danish TV2 has started the recordings for thier summer program – Crazy about circus. Lots of talented unknown circus artists compete in several categories. To day it was artists with animals there were called in and I can tell, that the standard was very high. Very surprisingly there was more horse acts than dog acts so there was more horses than ever in Copenhagen this afternoon. The producers told circus Scandinavia, that there have been a lot of interest for the project and there are still coming new names on the list. The judges in this competition are Line Wittrup and Steen Pegani. Line is an excellent artist but at the moment she is out because she has just given birth to a child. Last time we saw Line in a ring was together with the table artist – Freddie Steckel in the Norwegian circus Merano and the Swedish circus Maximum. Steen Pegani is normally magician and illusionist but at the moment he is the guy behind the magic magazine - Pegasus and selling magic props from his firm – Pegani. Host in the program is Bubber known from kids television but also the ringmaster in circus Arena for 10 seasons.

 

Here are a few photos from today in Copenhagen:

 

Det Danske TV2 har startet optagelserne for deres sommer program – Sådan cirkus. Masser af talentfulde men ukendte artister kæmper i flere forskellige kategorier. I dag var det artister med dyr der var tilsagt og jeg kan fortælle at standarden er høj. Overraskende var der flere heste numre end hunde så der var mange heste i København her til eftermiddag. Producenterne fortalte cirkus Skandinavia, at der har været en stor interesse omkring projektet og der kommer stadig nye navne på listen. Dommerne i denne konkurrence varetages af Linew Wittrup og Steen Pegani. Line er en fantastisk artist men er i øjeblikket på barsels orlov. Sidst vi så Line i ringen var sammen med bord artisten Freddie Steckel, hvor de optrådte i det Norske cirkus Merano og i det Svenske cirkus Maximum. Steen Pegani er trylle kunstner og illusionist men han er også manden bag det Danske trylle magasin – Pegasus og sælger rekvisitter fra sit firma Pegani. Vært i programmet er Bubber som vi alle kender fra børneprogrammer men også som vært i Cirkus Arena igennem 10 år.

New Link

A new link is added on the links to artists page. It is the fantastic duo Randols or if we say Denise Randols most Danes visiting circus Benneweis in the 2000 season, will absolutely remember this extra ordinary artist. Denise performed in this performance, called classic and new wave with two acts. The first was a hoola hop act and the second a roller skate act together with her husband – Massimo. Those two artists are just very special and extremely good looking and lots of people in Denmark remember this very spectacular performance as one of the best from the hands of Diana Benneweis. Unfortunately it is the only season this fantastic couple, have been working in Scandinavia except a short visit in the Swedish "the circus primcess" produced by the Bronett brothers.

 

  

In Scandinavian:

 

Et nyt link er blevet lagt på – Links to artists siden. Det drejer sig om den fantastiske duo Randols, eller hvis vi siger Denise Randol, de fleste Danskere der besøgte cirkus Benneweis i deres 2000 sæson, huske denne ekstra ordinære artist. Denise optrådte i denne forestilling kaldet, Classic and new Wave med 2 numre. Det første var et hoola hop nummer og det andet et rulleskøjte entré sammen med sin mand – Massimo. Disse 2 artister er bare helt specielle og ser ekstremt godt ud og rigtig mange mennesker i Danmark husker især denne forestilling som en af de bedste der nogensinde er produceret af Diana Benneweis. Desværre er det den eneste sæson dette fantastiske par har arbejdet i Skandinavien , undtaget for et kort besøg i det Svanske "Cirkus prinsessen" produceret af brødrene Bronett.

TV2s nye sommerprogram søger dygtige cirkustalenter

 

Vi skal finde Danmarks dygtigste cirkus-talenter i det nye program Sådan Cirkus. I juni sætter vi et cirkustelt op på Trianglen på Østerbro i København. Der kan du møde op og vise dit nummer til vores dommerpanel.

 

Onsdag den 14. juni         Jonglører, unicyklister og balancekunstnere

Fredag den 16. juni          Tricks og kunster med dyr

Mandag den 19. juni         Akrobater af alle slags

Tirsdag den 20. juni          Tryllekunstnere & klovne

Onsdag den 21. juni         Alt det spændende og skøre, der ikke passer             ind i de andre dage

 

Prøverne foregår hver dag mellem klokken 13.00 og 18.00, hvor vi optager til tv.

 

Du skal vise ét enkelt nummer, men om du vil optræde alene eller sammen med flere andre, afgør du selv. Du skal selv medbringe det udstyr, som du skal bruge. Alle kan deltage - eneste krav til de optrædende er, at de ikke må være professionelle cirkusartister. Det har ikke noget at gøre med, hvor dygtig du er, man må bare ikke leve af at være cirkusartist, så det er hovedindtægten.

 

Hver dag finder vi en finalist, som skal gå videre til programmets finale, som bliver afholdt i teltet hos Cirkus Benneweis den 9. august.

 

Hvis du har lyst til at være med, så send os en mail på cirkus@tv2.dk. Skriv dit navn og din alder, hvilken dag du gerne vil komme og hvad du optræder med. Så sender vi dig lidt praktisk information, når dagen nærmer sig.

Soccer world cup.

It is not a secret that an event as the world cup in soccer is a hard competitor to entertainment like circus. That is the reason for a range of German circuses will take a summer brake under the world cup and continue the tour later this summer. The circuses there will have a break is circus Roncalli,  Barelli, Carl Busch, Univeral Renz and Manege.

 Only Sweden here in Scandinavia will be a part of the world cup and it doesn’t seem as there will be any breaks here.

 In Scandinavian:

 Det skal ikke være nogen hemmelighed at events som et verdens mesterskab I fodbold, er en hård konkurrent til underholdning som cirkus. Dette er grunden til at en del cirkus i Tyskland holder sig en sommer pause under turneringen og fortsætter deres turne senere i sommer.. De cirkus der holder pause i Tyskland er cirkus Roncalli, Barelli, Carl Busch, Universel Renz og Manege.

 

Kun Sverige her i Skandinavien vil deltage i verdens mesterskabet og det ser ikke ud til at dette vil berøre noget cirkus.

Det lille Danske circus Charlie is on tour with a very nice show. Det ser ud til at Direktør Einar Trie klarer at sætte en ganske pænt show på benene. Måske er cirkus Charlie hovedsagligt for børn men de voksne i teltet i dagens forestilling havde en ganske fornøjelig eftermiddag. Der vil komme en fuld anmeldelse af forestillingen på disse sider i løbet af et par dage – indtil da kan man nyde et par billeder fra forestillingen.
