Cirque de Soleil

The Canadian circus is coming on tour here in Europe with their show Delirium. Delirium is not a tented show but a show made in bigger sports Arena and Exhibition centres. Delirium is a mix of sound, music, light and of cause artists. When Cirque du soleil visits the Scandinavian countries, they will not perform in Denmark but in Norway, Sweden and Finland. Last time Cirque du Soleil was in Denmark it wasn’t with an enormous success and that is maybe the reason for the missing tour days in this part of Scandinavia. Here is the Scandinavian tour dates

 

Norway – Oslo Spectrum

 October 1st and 2nd. Both days at 19:30

 

 Finland - Helsingfors

 September 22nd  at 14:00 and 18:00

September 23rd. at 14:00 and 18:00

September 24th. at 19:30

September 29th. at 15:00 and 19:30

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Det Canadiske cirque du Soleil er snart på vej til Europa med deres show Delirium. Delirium er ikke en telt forestilling som vi normalt ser fra dette Canadiske cirkus men et noget anderledes show der præsenteres i sports arenaer og udstillings haller. Delirium er et mix af musik, lyd, lys og selvfølgelig artister. Når Cirque Du Soleil besøger de Skandinaviske lande, vil de desværre ikke gæste Danmark men Norge, Sverige og Finland. Sidst Soleil gæstede Danmark for nogle få år tilbage var det ikke med en større succes, hvilke muligvis er grunden til det manglende besøg i denne del af Skandinavien. Her er de Skandinaviske tur dage:

 

Norge – Oslo Spectrum

 1. og 2. oktober begge dage kl. 19:30

New circus Photo magazine out now.

A new circus Photo magazine is out now. The magazine is volume 14 from the hands of the Dutch circus friend Leendert Bedijn. A great surprise when I received the new issue because the quality was increased a lot. A far better paper quality and much better pictures are what we can expect in the future. Lots of photos from the circus business here in Europe but this time nothing from Scandinavia expect an old tent from the Norwegian circus Merano but now owned by the English circus Mondau. If you are interested to see pictures spiced up with some facts about the different circuses Circus Photo magazine can be bought from Leendert Bedijn on the following address L.bedijn@kpnplanet.nl

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Et nyt circus Photo magazine er på gaden nu. Det nye magazin er nummer i 14 i rækken fra den Hollandske cirkus ven Leendert Bedijn. En stor overraskelse var det da jeg modtog mit anmelder eksemplar, da kvaliteten var langt beder end de forrige numre. Meget bedre papir og billede kvalitet er hvad vi kan forvente i fremtiden. Mange flotte fotos fra cirkus forretninger her i Europa men denne gang ingenting fra Skandinavien. Undtaget er dog et gammelt telt der engang var ejet af det Norske cirkus Merano og nu ejet af det Engelske cirkus Mondau, som nu lystigt rejser rundt i de Norske farver. Hvis du er interesseret i cirkus billeder frisket op med korte facts om de enkelte cirkus, så kan bladet købes hos Leendert Bedijn på følgende email adresse: L.bedijn@kpnplanet.nl

Olympias Camels

One of the Swedish circus Olympia´s camel croup’s performs at the moment in the circus building in Riga. Here they are a part of the show for 10 weeks ending June 3rd. The camels are performed by Mirek Maternik as wee could see in the Norwegian circus Merano in 2004 and 2006. In Merano he performed from horse but in Riga he works from the ground. Also in Riga we can find the juggler Kristaps as we could see in the Danish circus Arli in 2006. In Riga he is the ringmaster and presents the acts.

 

In Scandinavian.

 

En af det Svenske cirkus Olympias kamel grupper arbejder I øjeblikket I cirkus bygningen I Riga. Her er de en del af showet der løber over 10 uger og ender d. 3. juni. Kamelerne bliver fremført af Mirek Maternik, som vi også kunne se i det Norske cirkus Merano i både 2004 og 2006. Det var samme gruppe af kameler men her blev de fremført fra hest og ikke som i Riga hvor de bliver vist på traditionel vis. I cirkus bygningen i Riga finder vi også jongløren Kristaps som vi havde fornøjelsen af at opleve i det Danske cirkus Arli i 2006. I Riga arbejder Kristaps som ringmaster.

Cirkus Gymnasium i Norge

(In Scandinavian only)

Fra efteråret 2007 starter KULTA Tromsdalen kulturhus i Tromsø op med Norges første cirkus linie i den vider gående skole. Tilbudet er et samarbejde med Troms Fylkeskommune og Tromsdalen videre gående skole., afdelingen idræts fag. Eleverne vil få 10 timers cirkus træning om ugen som tillæg til de sædvanlige skolefag.

Undervisningen vil hentes hos KULTAs faste instruktør stab men dertil vil der i stor grad blive inviteret gæste instruktører.

 I det første år vil der være plads til 5 elever for dette nye tilbud.

 Dette er et helt unikt linie fag i Norsk sammenhæng, fundamentet delvist efter eksempler fra cirkus gymnasier i udlandet og delvis på at vi ser et behov for et næste trin i cirkus oplæring i Norge.

 Det eleverne ved lære på denne cirkus linie vil blandt andet ruste dem betydeligt for krævende optagelses prøver ved professionelle cirkus skoler i det store udland.

 KULTA har 14 års erfaring med cirkus undervisning for børn og unge. Nu tager vi et vigtigt skridt for os selv, cirkus miljøet i Norge og for cirkus kunsten generelt.

New reviews

2 new reviews are added to the review pages. It is the circus friend Holger Gensel from Germany there is the guy behind the work. Both reviews are from German circuses and the first is circus Busch Roland. Busch Roland is a nice circus in the middle size with an absolute nice program. Lots of artists in Busch Roland has been in Scandinavia such as Krenzola with mixed animals and ducks (Arena 2004), Konstantin Bessegonov as we could see in the small Danish circus Krone a few years back, Kobolovs – Reprise clowns seen in 2003 in the Swedish circus Skratt and the Danish circus BonBon.

 

The second review is from circus Charles Knie, this season with a new owner, presents very nice artists as the Italian ventriloquist Kenneth Huesca and Alex Lacey with his fantastic gage animal act. Both reviews are in German.

2 nye anmeldelser er lagt på anmelder siden. Det er den Tyske cirkus ven Holger Gensel der står bag dette arbejde for cirkus Skandinavia. Begge anmeldelser er fra Tyske cirkus og det første er cirkus Busch Roland. Busch Roland er et pænt cirkus i middel størrelse men med et meget fint program. Mage af artisterne her har arbejdet i Skandinavien som Krenzola med sine mange forskellige dyr og ikke mindst sin meget specielle nummer med 18 ænder i friheds dressur (Arena 2004). Konstantin Bessegonov kunne opleves i det lille DAnske cirkus Krone for et par år tilbage. De Russiske klovne Kobolovs kunne ses i det Svenske cirkus Skratt i 2003 og også i det Danske cirkus BonBon.

 

Anden anmeldelse er fra Cirkus Charles Knie, der i denne sæson kommer på de Tyske veje med en ny ejer. Charles Knie har virkelig satset i år og præsenterer blandt andet den Italienske verdens stjerne – bugtaleren Kenneth Huesca. Rovdyr nummeret bliver præsenteret af   Alex Lacey, som i dag regnes for et af verdens bedste af sin slags. Begge anmeldelser er skrevet på Tysk.

Zirkus Nemo.

The Danish circus Nemo is ready for a new season in Denmark. The last year there has been no tour for this variety circus because director Soren Ostergaard has been in charge for the variety show in Tivoli garden in Copenhagen. Now he is ready once again to tour around in Denmark. The new show is called “Once again” and will have their premiere north of Copenhagen (Charlottenlund) May 17th. Here zirkus Nemo will stay until June 30th and then continue around in Denmark.

 

In this new show there are more artists than normal. The other years there has been few artist combined with Soren Ostergaard and his different characters. This new tour includes far more artists from around the world than we so far have seen from this famous Danish actor. Soren Ostergaard is a very well known actor and comedian in Denmark and it is always a guarantee for a good laughter, when you buy a ticket here. The circus is mainly for adults but some kids can absolutely enjoy this show.

 

A surprise is the Italian handstand artist Glen Nicolodi and his charming dog. Glen is a very fantastic artist and he took a silver medal in Monte Carlo circus festival back in 2005. In 1995 he was a part of the “Cirque” de main a competition for young artists and here he won a silver medal.  It is absolutely not his first visit in Scandinavia, where he was seen in the Danish circus Benneweis back in 2003.

 

Kontini Junior is a very special clown and not new for the spectators visiting Sorens Ostergaards variety show in 2005. Lots of different opinions about Kontini but it is a fact he won a silver medal in Monte Carlo circus festival in 2003. There is no doubt about Kontini has many skills because he is a very talented contorion artist as well. In 2005 he was a part of The Benny Schumann produced clown festival in the Danish amusement park “Bakken” (The hill).

 

From Germany Soren Ostergaard presents the German trapeze artist Caroline Schroeck. Caroline has a nice reputation and she has been a part of Bernhard Pauls (Circus Roncalli) varity show “Frederichsbau Variety” in 2002, COP Varity show in Essen and a lot of other shows. Caroline is from Berlin and presents a Rhythm trapeze.

 

Viktoria Lapidus from Russia (now living in Hamburg) presents a funny hola hoop act. Viktoria is educated dancer and Choreographer and have a lot of experience in the world of circus as Roncalli, Fligenpilz and Bush Roland. Since 2004 she has been a part of the new circus Tiger Lilies.

 

Duo Blind date is a couple with a lot of funny skills. They are very hard to describe but a combination of comedians and acrobats. Duo Blind date is a typical variety act and there is no doubt the couple will succeed in Zirkus Nemo.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Det Danske Zirkus Nemo er klar med en ny sæson. De sidste par år har der ikke været nogen turne for dette variete cirkus, da direktør Søren Østergaard har ledet tivoli varietéen i København. Nu er man så heldigvis klar med en ny turne rundt i Danmark med et helt nyt show kaldet ”Nu igen” Premieren vil finde sted d. 17. maj 2007 i Charlottenlund nord for København. Her vil zirkus Nemo blive liggende frem til d. 30. juni og derefter fortsætte rundt i Danmark.

 

I dette nye show vil der blive præsenteret flere artister end vi hidtil har set. I de forrige sæsoner har der været få artister men kombineret med Søren Østergaards forskellige morsomme karakterer. Denne nye turne inkluderer mange flere artister end vi normalt har set for denne kendte Danske skuespiller.

 

En af de helt store overraskelser er den Italiens håndstands artist Glen Nicolodi. Glen er en fantastisk artist, der kan bryste sig med en medalje i Monte Carlo cirkus festival i 2005, hvor han rejste hjem med en sølv medalje. Helt tilbage i 1995 kunne man finde den unge Glen Nicolodi, hvor han deltog i Cirque du Demain festivalen som er en festival for unge cirkus talenter. Også her hentede Glen en sølv medalje. Det er ikke første gang at Glen optræder i Skandinavien, hvor han sidst kunne ses i Benneweis i 2003.

 

Kontini Junior er en meget speciel klovn og for gæster der så Søren Østergaards Tivoli Variete forestilling i 2005 vil få en gensyn med denne meget specielle klovn. Der er mange meninger om Kotini men en ting er sikkert, hvilket er at han blev belønnet med en sølv klovn ved cirkus festivalen i Monte Carlo i 2003. Der er ingen tvivl om at Kontini behersker mange aspekter af artist faget og kan også opleves som contorion artist. I 2005 var han en del af den Benny Schumann producerede klovne festival i forlystelsesparken – Bakken i 2005.

 

Fra Tyskland har Søren Østergaard hentet trapez artisten Caroline Schroeck.. Caroline er et rigtigt godt navn og har blandt andet arbejdet i Bernhard Pauls (Cirkus Roncalli direktør) varieté show “Frederichsbau Variety” i 2002, COP Varity show i Essen og i mange andre kendte shows.  Caroline Schroeck bliver præsenteret som rytmisk trapez artist.

 

Viktoria Lapidus er Russer men bor i Hamborg. Viktoria præsenterer et fantastisk hoola hop nummer. Viktoria er også uddannet som danser og har ind til nu haft en fin karriere i blandt andet Roncalli, Fligenpilz og Bush Roland. Fra 2004 har Viktoria arbejdet i nycirkuset Tiger Lilies.

 

Duo Blinddate er et meget komisk men samtidig et meget originalt nummer. Det er meget svært at beskrive men en blanding af komik og akrobatik er vel det nærmeste man kan komme. Duo Blinddate har flere numre de kan præsentere og passer i øvrigt perfekt i et variete show og vil derfor utvivlsomt få en stor succes i cirkus Nemo.

Mongolischer Staatscircus 2007

 

My good German circus friend – Holger Gensel, has been on a visit in the German Mongolischer staatscircus. Here he has made a review for circus Scandinavia and it can be found on the review pages or follow the link futher down this page. Mongolischer Staatscircus is the same circus as we normally know as Circus Fligenpilz. Circus Fligenpilz has in many years and with a great success, been touring in Germany with their water show bought from the DAnsih circus Arena many years ago. The last years the business has not been so great for this circus and they decided to change the name to Mongolischer staatscircus for this 2007 season. Now it seems as the new concept and the new contracted artists not are doing so well and the name will be changed back to Fligenpilz. Thanks to Holger for the review (In German) and you can go directly to the review here.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Min gode Tyske cirkus ven – Holger Gensel, har været på besøg I det Tyske Mongolischer Staatscircus. Her har han lavet en anmeldelse af forestillingen for cirkus Scandinavia og den kan findes på review siderne eller direkte ling længere nede på siden. Mongolischer Staatscircus er det same cirkus som vi kinder under navnet Fligenpilz. Cirkus Fligenpilz har i mange år turneret og med stor succes, med deres vand cirkus, som i øvrigt er købt af det Danske cirkus Arena for mange år siden. De sidste år har forretningen ikke haft økonomisk succes og ledelsen besluttede derfor at ændre både navn og indhold for deres cirkus. Nu ser det desværre ud til at det nye concept heller ikke har den store succes og man har derfor besluttet at vende tilbage til det gamle Fligenpilz navn. I øvrigt vil forestillingen også blive ændret til en traditionel cirkus underholdning. Tak til Holger Gensel  Direkte link her

New artists in Benneweis.

As written on these pages the dog trainer Diana Vedyashkina left circus Benneweis for personal reasons a few weeks ago. Now a new act is contracted and Benneweis presents the Russian artists Mennestrelli. Mennestrelli has been in Benneweis before in 2003. In 2004 they went to the Norwegian circus Merano for the 2004 season and in 2005 and 2006 they performed in Paris for circus D´Hiver. Menestrelli performs a different dog act with a touch of ballet and pantomime theatre.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Som skrevet før på disse sider forlod den Russiske hunde træner Diana Vedyashkina cirkus Benneweis I midten af april af personlige årsager. Nu har Benneweis skrevet kontrakt med det Russiske par Menestrelli. Menestrelli har været i cirkus Benneweis før og kunne ses i sæson 2003. I sæson 2004 var det Norge der havde glæden af dette nummer hvor de optrådte i cirkus Merano.I 2005 og 2006 var parret i det Franske cirque D´Hiver. Menestrelli optræder med et hunde nummer der er ud over det vi normalt ser, hvor både ballet og pantomime teater er en del af denne entré.
