Suzanne and Carsten Berdiono are at the moment preparing them selves for the  the Ahoy winter circus. Suzanne will perform the 12 Arab horses and Carsten Berdino with Arenas 6 Dromedaries.

Jim Rose.

Jim Rose Circus or should we say freak show are back on the road. Jim Rose circus,   at the moment touring in Australia is a very very special show. This time is no exception and Jim Rose will shake Australia with shooting darts after each other, eating mites, meal worms and a lot of other delicate ideas. The goal for this show is absolutely to be as disgusting as possible. I can tell that they succeed and the show is absolutely worth the money. For those who don’t live in Australia, it is possible to buy  a earlier show on DVD – including the act with hundreds of needles through the body, Weight lifting from very private pierced body parts are just a few reasons Jim Roses Circus is the undisputed king of all freak shows.

Isabella Enoch - Dinner show.

Friday November 28th Isabella Enoch from the Danish circus Dannebrog could open the doors to her dinner show called"Trapeze". 250 invited guests saw a very nice show, that the same time celebrated daddy – Haddy Enoch - 71 year’s birthday.

The show was started with an overture with all the artists. In the show was Jimmy Enoch performing his glass balance act on mono bike. Katja Enoch did a combined clothes changing, step and saxophone act.

The Dinner was served in the break.

In the second half of the show we could see Jimmy Enoch together with his two cousins, Edward and David Enoch doing their bicycle entrée. Isabellas beauty saloon, as we could see this year in circus Dannebrog, was on the stage with the African elephant "Rambo" – It is a very charming act were the elephant are doing a hairdressing on a" volunteer" from the audience. The German low wire artists "Toranos" ended the show. Toranos are very special because in this father and son duo is maybe the worlds oldest working artist included. Daddy is 95 years old and still working on the wire.
