Circus tour.

This evening circus Scandinavia invited 25 kids and adults in circus Arena. They all had a fantastic evening and were very impressed by the show. What they liked best is hard to tell but Cardinalli and their sea lions, the elephants, the horses was some of the acts mentioned.


In Scandinavian:


Her til aften havde Cirkus Skandinavia inviteret 25 børn og voksne i circus Arena. De havde alle en fantastisk aften og var meget imponerede af dette show. Hvad de bedst kunne lide er svært at sige men Cardinalli og deres søløver, elefanterne, hestene var nogle af de numre der blev nævnt.

The Italian ventriloquist Kevin Huesca as we could enjoy here in Scandinavia for the last two years is on tour with circus Medrano in Budapest.

Circus Dannebrog.

This evening circus Dannebrog started their 2006 tour around in Denmark. The first performance was bought by a Danish mega store – Kvickly – It was a sold out performance in the elegant new red and white tent from the Italian tent factory Canobbio. There were a little nerves in Dannebrog because the tent arrived only a few days ago. The performance tonight was a great success and the spectators in the southern part of Denmark were very satisfied. A very big surprise this evening was the return of the 6 man band   in charge by Mr. Ryszard Murakuwski.  

 Review from this performance will be on this page in the April issue of "Circus Scandinavia internet magazine"


In Scandinavian


Denne aften havde cirkus Dannebrog deres start på sæson 2006 I Danmark. Den første forestilling var købt af den Danske supermarkedets kæde – Kvickly i Vojens. Det var en totalt udsolgt forestilling idet nye elegante rød/hvide telt fra den Italienske telt fabrik Canobbi. Der var lidt nerver i Cirkus Dannebrog, da det nye telt først ankom for få dage siden. Forestillingen i aftes var en stor succes og tilskuerne i den sydlige af Danmark var meget tilfredse. En meget stor overraskelse denne aften var at man igen kunne se  cirkus musikere på plads under ledelse af Mr. Ryszard Murakuwski. 

Andmeldelse af forestillingen kan læses på disse side i april udgaven af "circus Scandinavia internet magazine"

Circus Roncalli.

Circus Roncalli in Germany is on the road for their 2006 tour. As always with Roncalli, they are not travelling so much but stays in the bigger towns in several weeks. This year, Roncalli will go on a short visit in Austria and perform in Vienna. At the moment Roncalli is in Aarchen (The western part of Germany), where they will stay until April 2nd. From April 8th. you can find Roncalli in Koln, ending May 4th. The tour goes to Heidelberg, Vienna, Munich and most interesting for the Scandinavian people, to Berlin in the northern part of Germany.


In this 30 year anniversary tour, Roncalli have managed to sign the Italian super clown – David Larible – David have been working in Ringling Brothers in the last 13 years but now he is back in Europe and ready to amuse the German people. This years Roncalli performance is called “ Dreams, astonished and laugher “ and there is a few new acts compared to the 2005 performance like Boytovs with a fantastic Russian barre act. Still in the performance is the German Wheel artist – Konstantin Mouraviev, duo Sorrelas and a few others. If you come to Germany to see a lot of animals in the performance, it is not Roncalli you had to choose. Roncalli has a single animal act on the program – a liberty horse entrée presented by Sarah Houcke

I have received some Photos from Bastian Mertens in Germany – thanks Bastian.

In Scandinavia:


Cirkus Scandinavia var ikke de eneste Danskere i cirkus Brazil Jack i eftermiddags. Mindst 2 andre cirkus folk havde fundet vej til Sverige. Det var Nelly Jane Benneweis – forhenværende konferencier i cirkus Benneweis og Ole Simonsen – Manden bag det meget flotte web side – Cirkus i Danmark


Brianos circus trips.

Brian Behrendt is the guy behind Brianos circus trips and he arranges travels and trips to various circuses in Europe. The last trip outside Denmark was for a large group of Scandinavian circus friends to Monte Carlo circus festival. Thursday he was the guy behind a trip to the circus Benneweis premiere. Diana Benneweis gave her self time for a picture with her and the group. The next circus trip is in May where the group will go to Hamburg for a visit in circus Charles Knie. If you are interested to be a part of this trip or some of the arrangements in the future you can get more information here.


Brian Behrendt er manden bag Brianos cirkus ture og han arrangerer rejser og ture til forskellige cirkus I Europa. Den sidste tur udenfor Danmark var for en stor gruppe af Skandinaviske cirkus venner til Monte Carlo cirkus festival. Torsdag var han manden bag en tur til cirkus Bennweis premieren. Diana gav sig selv tid til et billede med gruppen. Den næste tur er i maj, hvor en gruppe vil rejse til Hamborg for at besøge Charles Knie. Hvis du er interesseret i at komme med på denne tur eller på et senere arrangement kan du få mere information her.





Last year I was a little after Circus Arena because in my opinion there weren’t enough toilets compared to the size of the circus. Especially lady’s toilets were a problem when Arena had so many spectators in 2005. That is not the case anymore because through the winter the staff in Arena has built up a brand new toilet wagon for this new 2006 season. In the new wagon there are 16 toilets, which should clear the problem with the long waiting time for the ladies.

 In Scandinavian:

Sidste år var jeg lidt efter cirkus Arena , da de efter min opfattelse ikke havde toiletter nok sammellignet med størrelsen på cirkus. Specielt dame toiletterne var et problem, når cirkus Arena havde så mange tilskuere i 2005. Dette er ikke et problem mere, da personalet i cirkus Arena igennem vinteren har bygget en helt ny toilet vogn til sæsson 2006. I den nye vogn er der 16 dame  toilettes, hvilket skulle fjerne problemet med de lange køer for damerne.

Benneweis premiere

This evening there was premiere for the Danish circus Benneweis in Hillerod. The head attraction is the Italian clown Fumagalli and his brother Darix. Not much to say, those to guys are just fantastic. They are in the ring a lot but when it comes to Fumagalli brothers it is an absolute pleasure. Lot other fantastic artists was included and for the first time in many years a ring master was a part of the show and that was really nice. It seems there will be a lot of water in the 2006 performances in Denmark because as in the Danish circus Arena the final included water. The equipment that Daina Benneweis uses is similar to the show that was included in the Norwegian circus Merano in 2005 and in the Circus Herman Renz Splash tour in the Netherlands in 2004. Circus Scandinavia will of cause bring a review on these pages and can be found in the April issue of circus Scandinavia Internet circus Magazine. Until the you can enjoy a few pictures from the performance.


In Scandinavian:


I aftes var der premiere for det Danske circus Benneweis I Hillerød. Hoved navnet er den Italienske klovn Fumagalli og hans bror Darix. Ikke meget at sige andet at disse 2 fyre er bare fantastiske. De får rigtig meget tid i manegen men når det kommer til Fumagalli er det kun en fornøjelse. En masse andre fantastiske artister var inkluderet og for første gang i mange år, blev numrene præsenteret af en konferencier.  Og det var rigtig godt. Det ser ud som om der bliver en masse vand i  2006 forestillingerne i Danmark,   som i cirkus Arena inkluderede finalen en masse vand. Udstyret som Diana Benneweis bruger, er magen til det som cirkus Merano brugte i 2005 og i det Hollandske cirkus Herman Renz i deres Splash turne i 2004. Cirkus Scandinavia vil selvfølgelig bringe en fuld anmeldelse på disse sider og vil kunne findes i april udgaven af The cirkus Scandinavia Internet magazine. Indtil da kan du nyde et par billeder fra forestillingen

Brianos Cirkusrejser

Hvad er Brianos Cirkusrejser?

Brianos Cirkusrejser er ikke et rejsebureau eller en rejsearrangør. Det er
en gruppe cirkusinteresserede, som lejlighedsvis arrangerer ture til cirkus
i ind- og udland. Flere af gruppens medlemmer har tilknytning til foreningen
Danske Cirkusvenner. Til de fleste af turene har Brian "Briano" Behrendt
fungeret som "praktisk gris". Deraf kælenavnet Brianos Cirkusrejser. Briano
er det navn Brian bruger, når han arbejder som staldmester for Benny

Den første tur - en bustur til Cirkus Barum i Flensborg - fandt sted i
efteråret 2004. I efteråret 2005 besøgte gruppen på samme måde Cirkus Krone
i Berlin.

Nogle medlemmer af gruppen har arrangeret samkørsel til et par cirkus samt
til åbningen af Sveriges Cirkusmuseum 2. juli 2005. Der er ideer om
tilsvarende samkørsel til svenske cirkus i 2006 og også om i fællesskab af
besøge danske cirkus.

I januar 2006 besøgte 15 medlemmer af gruppen Cirkusfestivalen i Monte
Carlo. Turen foregik med rutefly, og deltagerne valgte at bo på samme hotel.

Circus Scandinavia has been corrected concerning Circus Louis Knie Junior and their new name – Circus National. It is not correct that Louis Knie was forced to change the name but because a lot of bad articles in the papers about Louis Knie Jr. they decided to change the name.


In Scandinavian:


Cirkus Scandinavia er blevet rettet omkring den notits ang. Louis Knie Jr. Og deres nye navn – Cirkus National. Det er ikke korrekt at Louis Knie var tvunget til at skifte navn men da der havde været maget dårlig omtale i aviser omkring Louis Knie Jr. Bestemte de sig for at skifte navn.


Info Christoph Enzinger

March 21st.


Tonight there was premiere for the biggest circus in Scandinavia – Circus Arena. 2000 invited guests saw maybe best show ever in Arena. Read about the performance on this page tomorrow - until then enjoy the picture of Alexis Caselly on her horse.




Guests in Arena

As usual there were a lot of well-known guests in Arena this evening – Politicians, actors and a lot of artists from the circus business. Here are a few of them.







March 20th.

Circus National

Circus national is a new circus in Austria but not so new anyway because it is made by Louis Knie Jr.  The reason for the new name is a bankruptcy last year with his circus and  they can’t use the name Knie anymore.


In Scandinavian:


Cirkus National er et nyt cirkus I Østrig men alligevel ikke så nyt fordi, det er lavet af Louis Knie JR.. Grunden til det nye navn er at Knie måtte lukke sidste år af økonomiske årsager og derfor ikke kan benytte navnet Knie mere.

Info: Holger Gensel- Germany.

Circus Baldoni.

The Danish circus Baldoni has raised their brand new tent in their winter home. There are no rehearsals with artists yet because they will first arrive April 1st. As usual the performance will be held on a round stage and not a ring. The advantage is that the sight from the Gradin, where there now is room for 600 people, is much better. From April 8th. there will be performances on Bornholm and the premiere will be in Lyngby (north of Copenhagen) April 21st. Baldoni will continue the summer tour until September 25th. 2006. For more details there is link to circus Baldoni on the link page “Links to circuses in Scandinavia”


In Scandinavian:


Det Danske Cirkus Baldoni har rejst deres helt nye telt I deres vinter kvarter. Der bliver ikke øvet med artister endnu, da disse først ankommer 1. april. Som sædvanligt vil forestillingen foregå på en rund scene og ikke i en manege. Fordelen er at udsynet fra tilskuer pladserne, hvor der nu er plads til 600 mennesker, er langt bedre. Fra d. 8. april vil der være forestillinger på Bornholm og den egentlige lands premiere vil være i Lyngby (Nord for København) d. 21 april. Baldoni vil fortsætte deres sommer turne indtil d. 25. september 2006. For flere detaljer er der et direkte link til cirkus Baldoni på link siden ”Links to circuses in Scandinavia”.

Circus Scandinavia will of cause review this performance, where the fantastic Italian clown Fumagalli and his brother Darix are one of this years head attractions.

Breathtaking performance

This evening circus Arena gave the first of 5 performances before the premiere Tuesday. The performance will of cause be reviewed to the premiere but circus Scandinavia was there for a single sneak peak. Already now I can say that I have never seen anything like this before in Scandinavia. The show starts as a normal performance but in the end the whole thing explodes in light, music, water and smoke. Until Tuesday, where there will be lots of pictures from the show on this page, you can enjoy a few photos from this extra ordinary performance.  


Her til aften – gav cirkus Arena den første af i alt 5 forestillinger før premieren på tirsdag. Forestillingen vil selvfølgelig blive anmeldt til premieren men Cirkus Scandinavia var der for et lille smugkig. Allerede nu kan jeg sige, at jeg aldrig har set noget lignende før i et Skandinavisk cirkus. Forestillingen starter som et normalt show men til slut eksploderer det hele i lys,musik, vand og røg. Indtil tirsdag, hvor der vil komme en masse billeder fra forestillingen på denne side, kan du nyde et par fotos fra denne ekstra ordinære forestilling.

Circus under water.

The whole circus Arena staff are working hard to be ready for the premiere. Rehearsals are started and all the technical installations must work before the start in a few days. Circus Scandinavia was this evening behind the scenes to take a closer look at this “circus under water” performance and I can tell you that this show 2006 will be very spectacular. Benny Berdino and his family will this year present artists in world class but also a water show combined with lazars and lights never seen in Denmark before.  


In Scandinavian:


Hele circus Arenas stab af medarbejdere arbejder hårdt for at blive klar til premieren. Indstuderingen er startet og alt teknisk udstyr før starten om et par dage. Circus Scandinavia var i aftes bag scenen for at tage et nærmere kig på denne ”Cirkus under vand” forestilling og jeg kan fortælle at dette 2006 show vil blive meget spektakulært. Benny Berdino og hans familie vil i år præsentere artister i verdens klasse men også et vand show kombineret med laser og lys der aldrig før set i Danmark.  




Circus Massimo

The Italian television circus has their program ready for 2006- Here are some of the artists. Peter Shub – the German reprise clown. Peter is extremely funny but not known by many Scandinavians. People visiting circus Roncalli in their special performance “ Hohner rockin` Roncalli” a few years ago would be able to remember this fantastic clown. Peter performs with no words and his mimic is just great. Flavio Togni will be there with a lot of entrees – Horses, camels, high school and elephants. Flavio Togni is behind the huge 3 ring circus “circus Americano” in Italy. This year we will be able to see some of Tognis elephants here in Scandinavia. 4 of them are rented by the Swedish circus Maximum and performed here by Anton Frank. A few years ago we could see 9 of Flavio Tognis elephants in the Danish circus Arena performed by Kim Benneweis. The fantastic Italian ventriloquist will be in Massimo, last year in the Swedish circus Maximum and in 2004 in the Norwegian circus Merano.

If you are interested you can see and old list of all artists perfomed in Circo Massimo through the years here

Circus Wictoria

The four Chinese artists Gao Chen will be a part of the Swedish circus Wictoria in the coming summer tour 2006. Gao Chen was in 2005 a part of the Danish circus Baldoni. Gao Chen are fantastic multi artists and will perform traditional Chinese entrees as Lion dance, diablo, antipode and water meteor. A funny thing about Gao Chen is that the two couples are all twins and married to each other. Gau Chen has been a part of the Chinese state circus and Cirque du Soleil before they performed in Denmark last year. If you want to read more about Gao Chen it is possible on the review page and the review Baldoni 2005.


De fire Kinesiske artister – Gao Chen vil være en del af det Svenske circus Wictoria I den kommende 2006 sæson. Gao Chen var i 2005 en del af det Danske cirkus Baldoni.

Wrong information

I’m very sorry that I a few days ago wrote that Circus Bennewies would not visit Horsholm – They will and I’m very happy to write that people in Horsholm can visit Benneweis April 3rd. New on the tour list this year is Lyngby – north of Copenhagen.


In Scandinavien


Jeg er meget kad af, at jeg forleden skrev at circus Benneweis ikke ville besøge Hørsholm. – De vil de og kan fortælle at folk i Hørsholm kan besøge Benneweis d. 3 April. Ny på årets turne liste i år er Lyngby nord for København.

Circus Mille

Arena Director – Benny Berdino has bought the model circus” Circus Mille”. Until now the model circus was placed in the Danish circus museum in Hvidovre (a little outside Copenhagen). In the future it will be included in Arenas own exhibition together with other model circuses (Arena, Benneweis and circus Miehe).  


Cirkus Arena director – Benny Berdino har købt model cirkuset “Cirkus Mille” indtil nu har cirkuset været placeret på det Danske cirkus museum i Hvidovre. I fremtiden vil dette model cirkus blive inkluderet i Arena egen udstilling sammen med andre model cirkus (Arena, Benneweis og cirkus Miehe)


Circus Arena arrived in Copenhagen.

The Danish circus Arena has arrived to Copenhagen and started build up the circus before the premiere in a few days. The weather is not exactly circus weather and it is freezing cold. Here is a little bit of snow but absolutely nothing compared to what we saw in Norway last week. Some of the artists has arrived – Duo Cardinali and the German Illusionist – Peter Valance arrived to day. The German elephant trainer Casselly has arrived but stays in a little warmer environment in the Arena winter quarter. There is a little change in the program caused by the terrible accident with The Antares in February and the entree will be replaced with another act. As always Benny Berdino is far ahead with the planes and can already say that next years performance is called "Giant Circus 2007".




Extra photos from Circus Merano premiere performance added to the monthly circus Magazine


March 10th.

Circus Benneweis

Circus Benneweis has released the dates and places for the whole summer tour 2006. It seems like Benneweis follow  the same route as they have done the resent years. Premiere as usual in Hillerod – 40 kilometers north of Copenhagen March 25th. At 7 PM.   Ending their tour in Copenhagen in September with 14 performances from 6th. until 17th. A little surprise is that Benneweis will not visit Horsholm this year. For program details see further down this page.



Circus Maximum 2006

Circus Maximum program 2006 


Lots of Chinese artists seem to be the trend this year in some Scandinavian circuses. Chinese artists can be seen in Norway (Arnardo and Merano) and in this year in the Swedish circus Maximum. From the area of Dalian in China comes 8   pole artists and some of them for the first time in Europe. They will present a fantastic act with double poles. As last year the Camels in Maximum will be presented by Anton Frank. Old Regnas with his very charming dog act. Old Regnas should have been in Maximum before (2000)  and in Benneweis in 1999. Last year Old Regnas was in Holland in Herman Renz and in 2004 he was a part of the Austrian National circus. Duo Mak is a married couple – Alexander and Tatjana doing a very thrilling air acrobat act. The Scorpions - Icarian games act – Started as street entertainers in their homeland and has been on tour in the last years in USA.  Maximums own Arab horses were new in 2004 they are as last year presented by Anton Frank. The clown act is done by the Spanish clowns Revilinos. They have been in Maximum twice before this season, in 1997 and in 2000. In circus Arena in 2005, 2002, 2003 and in the Norwegian circus Merano so far back as in 1988. Diving hopes is the second act from this Chinese troupe – This time they are announced as jumping acrobats. Anton Franks third entrée and this time with four Indian elephants from the Italian Togni family.

It seems like a very strong production here in circus Maximum with lots of animals and known and unknown artists

Anton Frank performs the horses, Camels and the elephants in the 2006 Maximum performance


Circus Benneweis

The Danish circus Benneweis has released their program. Normally Benneweis is very well considered with their program and it seems like there is no exception this year.  It is not a surprise that the Italian star clown Fumagalli and his brother Darix is back in Benneweis, where the brothers in 2003 amused the spectators here in Denmark (In 2004 in circus Arnardo in Norway). It seems that Adriana Folco prefers to be on contracts in two years in every circus   because she and her lovely elephant – Baby will take their second year in Benneweis. Before Adriana was contracted to Benneweis she was 2 years in the Norwegian circus Merano. Huesca brothers (Nino and Nico) – sons to Fumagalli will perform an Icarian game act. I have not seen this particular act but friends from Italy has whispered in my ear, that the act is very very nice. Dubskys dogs – a Danish dog act is very well known and very popular. Two teams of dogs playing soccer against each other (Normally Sweden and Denmark). Very very amusing and very entertaining. Duo Splash must be new in Scandinavia but absolutely not new in the rest of Europe. Last season in circus Nock with a lot of success with this very thrilling air act. Jemil Martinez a new juggler from the very famous Martinez family. Street kick is a young act with motivation from the street style. It is a new act in Scandinavia and I look forward to see this modern trampoline act. With a future in Circo Nuiman, circo di Mosca and circus Massimo comes Alessio Fochesato with his very colourful Ara parrots. Alessio Fochesato is maybe unknown in Scandinavia but very well known in Italy. In September 2005 there was a nice article about this artist in one of the world’s greatest circus Magazines “In Cammino”.

Not always glamour.

Take a look at those two pictures, they both show Jimmy Enoch.   The first show the glamorous work in the ring and the next show the daily life behind the scene. Two sides of the circus life. The first is taken in Circus Kenny in Odense 2005 and the next taken yesterday where Jimmy is working on the new tent wagon. Jimmy will in 2006 season, together with his father, perform in his grand daddy’s circus Dannebrog.

 In Scandinavian

Tag et kig på disse to fotografier, de forestiller begge Jimmy Enoch. Det første viser der glamourøse arbejde i manegen og det andet det daglige liv bag scenen i cirkus - 2 sider sider af cirkus livet. Det første er taget i cirkus Kenny - Odense 2005 og det andet i går, hvor Jimmy arbejder på den nye telt vogn. Jimmy vil i 2006, sammen med sin far, optræde i sin bedstefars cirkus Dannebrog.




Not all new in Krone.

Circus Krone has announced that their 2006 summer tour program is brand new. There are new acts in the program but not all entrees are new. Troupe Borzovi are reengaged and the same goes for the trick riders – Iristons. New in the program is Tony Alexis clowns and the spring board troupe - The Catanas. Tony Alexis family has been in Scandinavia several times – Merano 1984, Maximum in 2001 and last time in Benneweis for the 2002 season. Catana was last seen in Scandinavia for the 2003 season where they performed in circus Arena.


In Scandinavian:


Cirkus Krone har annonceret, at deres 2006 sommer tur program er helt nyt. Derer nye numre i programmet men ikke alt kan kaldes nyt. Troupe Borzovi er gengangere og det samme gælder for trick rytterne – Iristons. Nye i programmet er Tony Alexis clowns og spring bræt truppen – Catana. Tony alexis familien har været i Skandinavien mange gange – Merano 1984, Maximum i 2001 og sidste gang i Benneweis i sæsonen 2002.

Circus Krone.

Circus Krone in Germany has announced that their coming summer tour will be with a brand new program. The last years there haven’t been so many new acts in the performance. Circus Krone have not released the names of the artists but we still hope that the tour 2006 includes the Northern part of Germany.


In Scandinavian:


Cirkus Krone I Tyskland har annonceret, at deres kommende sommer turne vil være med et helt nyt program. De sidste år har der ikke været den store udskiftning i forestillingen. Cirkus Krone har endnu ikke offentliggjort navnene på artisterne men vi håber stadig, at turneen i 2006 inkluderer den nordlige del


Alexander Xelo

The fantastic German Diablo artist – Alexander Xelo will be a part of circus Herman Renz in the coming season. Alexanders Xelo is a very young and speedy artist with a very modern  style and expression. Alexander could be seen in the Danish Circus Arena in the 2004 season.

 In Scandinavian:

Den fantastiske Tyske Diablo artist Alexander Xelo vil være en del af circus Herman Renz i den kommende sæson. Alexander Xelo er en meget ung og tempofyldt artist med en meget moderne stil og udtryk. Alexander kunne ses i det Danske cirkus arena i deres 2004 sæson.

Circus Arnardo 2006

Circus Arnardo has released their 2006 summer program. A great surprise in the program is the Italian clown Jimmy Folco, there has been on tour with one of the biggest circuses in Europe – Circus Krone - the last years. Since Eugene Altenburg retired from the ring, Jimmy Folco has been a partner with Bruno Stutz instead of Eugene (Chicky). Now Jimmy will go on tour with circus Arnardo and show us lots of funny situations. Jimmy Folco and his family has been in Scandinavia many many times before and it would be nice to see him again.


The Possession Crew is break dancing. Circus Arnado has engaged one of the best of its kind. The Possession crew will give circus Arnado a touch modern entertainment when they make their battles. – Battles are when the one of the dancers try to be better than his partner.


Three acts from China are presented in Arnardo. Directly from China Acrobats Association comes King Fanxiang with a traditional juggling act. Traditional juggling in China is when the equipment used, is found in an ordinary home. Normally it is plates and/or vases. Here in Arnardo King Fanxiang will do a fantastic juggling with porcelain vases.


From the Sichuan Province Suining Acrobatic Troupe comes the Chinese acrobats Yang Chaohe, Wang Cuiling, Chen Xiaoping og Rao.


Liu Jingrui and Zhang Xue are a flying trapeze act, doing the most impossible under the big top.



The founder of  Circus Arnardo is Arne Arnardo – also called “The circus king”. He died in 1995 and his speciality in the ring was absolute magic and illusions. Now the family has taken over and Are Arnardo (grandson) and Paola (married to Are Arnardo) will continue this tradition.


Gartneres elephants are back in Arnardo and this time he takes a lot of exotic animals with him. Gartner has been in Norway now for several years and presents a very nice Indian elephant act. This year there will be Zebras, Water buffaloes, dromedaries, camels, yaks and a lot of other animals.


Paolo Folco presents a dog act with a lot of dogs and different races – small, big, white, black , brown and a lot of other sizes and colours. Folco´s dogs could be seen in circus Arena in 2001 and in the last years in the huge circus Americano in Italy. When I saw this act last time in Trieste in Italy I counted more then 50 dogs.



There is more animals in this 2006 summer tour in Arnardo - Olandar`s white Angora cats will make the animal entertainment complete


Lots of animals in this 2006 Arnardo production seem to be one of many attractions for this season. Premiere for Arnado will be in Arendal Saturday 18th. At 6 PM.  And again Sunday at 3 PM and at 6 PM. Arnardo is the oldes circus in Norway and they are going out on their season number 58.




Blackpool tower circus.

In the 2005 production circus Merano ended their performance with a very nice water show. The show was almost similar to the show presented by the Dutch circus Herman Renz in their Splash 2004 performance. Most people thought that Merano bought the water show but that is not true because the one in Merano was perfectly new. Now it is sold to Black pool tower circus in England, where the English people can enjoy this spectacular arrangement in the future

Bernhard Kasselovsky

A few days ago circus Scandinavia wrote that Bernhard Kaselovsky was returning from the hospital in Germany. He did not and that is not because circus Scandinavia doesn’t check the information that we receives because the information came directly from the Dannebrog family where Bernhard works. The reason for he didn’t returned to Denmark was the German hospital wanted him to stay a few days more. Anyway the good news is that Bernhard should be home in Denmark   tomorrow. His two daughters have left their home in Denmark to pick up Bernhard and should return to Denmark tomorrow.



Circus Dannebrog 2006.


The Danish circus Dannebrog has released their 2006 summer program. It was the plan that Isabella and Josephine Kasselowsky should have done a new comic trapeze act but a car accident keeps Isabella out of the ring for a time. This new production from the Enoch family is called “Circus Traditions for millions” and it seems like a very nice program in a brand new tent arriving in the winter quarter March 14th.


For the first time ever it is now possible to present a flying trapeze act and it is performed by the Brazilian Flying Michaels.


Eddy Carello a fantastic world star juggler from Switzerland – Eddys speciality is juggling on drums. He bounces the balls against the drums and on this way he makes an act both for the ear and the eye. Eddy Carello performs in a “blues brother” style. Eddy will be in the ring twice and his second entrée will be a football juggling act. Eddy Carello is seen before in Scandinavia because he was a part of the Swedish circus Skratt in 2004. Eddy has been working in a lot of Circuses in Europe. In Louis Knie in 2002, circus Noch in 2000 and in 2003 he was a part of the Dutch circus Martin Hanson.


Dannebrog has always been very faithful the the European clown style and we will not be disappointed in this new program. The clowns are done by the Spanish brothers Paco and Jorge known as “Los Gotys” They call themselves traditional clowns with a modern style. It is not the first time in Scandinavia for the Gotys. First time they were here was in 1988 where they performed in the Danish circus Benneweis. In 1990 they returned and this time in circus Finlandia. In 1997 they performed for the first time in Dannebrog and now they will be back here in 2006. Los Gotys has been in a lot of circuses in Europe as Althoff Jacobi, the American circus (the one in Spain), Arlette Gruss in France, Mundial in Spain, circus Medrano in France, Circus Noch and a lot of other circuses.


The Haddies will be back with their bicycle act in Dannebrog this year. The Haddies has over the years performed a lot of different bicycle acts but Circus Dannebrog reports to Circus Scandinavia that Father and son will be together again in the ring. That means Dennie Enoch will be back on the bicycle after he has been working behind the scenes a few years but now he will perform together with his son Jimmy. Dennie Enoch is son of director Haddie Enoch.


Glavatskies will show us an air volitiege act. This couple from Ukraine will perform a very nice act where he is hanging in his leg and his wife will do very complicated tricks including some very difficult summersaults.


The Camels are performed by Josephine Kasselowsky and she will also perform the African elephants (Baby and Rambo) if her father Bernhard Kasselovsky shouldn’t be ready after his car accident.


The German couple “Igen” will perform a mixed goat and dog act. Daniel and Josephine Igen can do a lot of different acts as a fakir act and dogs. Here in Dannebrog they will perform their dog and goat act as they did in the Danish winter circus Kenny in January 2005.


Katja Enoch will be in charge for Dannebrogs new horse act.






March 5th.

Jimmy Enoch.

Together with circus Scandinavia to the Merano premiere in Norway was the Danish bicycle artist – Jimmy Enoch from the Danish circus Dannebrog. Also from Dannebrog was Stefan Rothmann and we all had 2 fantastic days in circus Merano. We will just say thank you to the Merano staff, given us so much attention were there was so much else to do.

Cavaegna clowns.

The Italian clowns – Cavaegna clowns there will be in circus Baldoni 2006 are real traditional musical clowns. The web master have seen the act from this Italian family on DVD and what a positive surprise. In these days it very rare to see old fashion clowns and it is more common to contract Russian reprise clowns. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Russian clowns because the European clown and the Russian are two different things. Both acts do have the same goal to amuse and make us laugh but still in a different way. I really fantastic ambassador for the Russian style is the Kapitanskis – seen in Baldoni in 2005 and of cause Oleg Popov. In these days lot of the European clown stars are gone and lots of the younger generation in this style do not have the feeling. It is not enough with endless slapstick humour and it doses not give a funny act just throwing water or layer cakes on each other. Of cause there are still fantastic traditional clowns like Rossyann, Marianis, and lot of others but still it seems like an end for the white face and his friends. Therefore it is very nice to see Cavaegna clowns – Dad and his to very young sons, do such a traditional act. Lots of music and lots of funny situations, well maybe they have taken a little from other clowns but that doesn’t matter if it is done with the right nerve.   


Monthly internet circus Magazine

Circus Scandinavia’s internet circus magazine for January and February is not finished yet. The page with all the artists working in Scandinavia in 2006 is delayed because , I have not received information from some of the circuses   and some of them will not have their program exposed on these pages yet.

The German elephant trainer Bernhard Kasselowsky will return to his home today after he has been hospitalized the last weeks. Bernhard and the Danish trapeze artist – Isabella Enoch was serious injured in a car accident in Germany. Bernhard Kasselowsky broke 6 rips and Isabella broke an arm and a leg. Bernhard’s 2 African elephant’s - Baby and Rambo - has been looked after by Bernhard’s 2 daughters Melanie and Josephine. When Bernhard and Isabella have been away one of the camels has given birth to a new baby camel and one more is coming in the near future.
