DVD.

It is rare to find DVD concerning artists or circuses but sometimes there is a little to write about. The famous German artists – The Thuranos do have their own DVD and it is a very informative project as well. One and a half our, with the story behind this very special circus family is not too much. The story takes us back many years where Thur Thurano tells the background and why he became an artist. Lots of rare footage from the Thuranos family archive takes us from Germany to South Africa, where they stayed under the World War II and later through the middles east.

 

Thur Thurano is now 97 years and he is still an active artist together with his son John. See the performance in Apollo Theater in Germany and hear the comments from the family and circus Roncalli Director Bernhard Paul.

 

Extra material with interviews.

 

If you should be interested in this DVD please contact circus Scandinavia

 

In Scandinavian

 

Det er sjældent man finder DVDér der beskæftiger sig med cirkus eller artister men somme tider er der dog lidt at skrive om. De berømte Tyske artister – The Thuranos, har deres egen DVD og det er et yderst spændende projekt. En og en halv time med historier omkring denne specielle cirkus familie er ikke for meget. Historien tager os tilbage mange år, hvor Thur Thurano fortæller om sin baggrund og hvordan og hvorfor han blev artist. Mange sjældne privat optagelser fra familiens eget arkiv tager os fra Tyskland til Syd Afrika, hvor de opholdte sig under anden verdenskrig og senere igennem mellem østen.

 

Thur Thurano er nu 97 år og stadig en aktiv artist sammen med sin søn John. Se deres forestilling i Apollo varieteen i Tyskland og hør kommentarer fra familie og Roncalli cirkus direktør Bernhard Paul.

 

Ekstra materiale med interviews.

Baldoni Christmass circus

The program for Baldoni Christmas circus is ready. A very positive surprise is that the fantastic Chinese artists Gao Chen is back. Most people visiting Baldoni in 2005 and the Swedish circus Wictoria in 2006 will remember those two couples of twins married to another couple of twins. But first of all we can remember four very skill full artists. This time they will do a range of their old acts but there will also be premiere on a brand new tissue act.

 

The Danish table artists The Steckels will be there as well. Freddie Steckel and partner are very well known all over Scandinavia. He could be seen in the Norwegian circus Merano in 2002, Circus Maximum in Sweden for the 2003 season. In 2004 he was in Denmark performing his act with Isabella Enoch as his partner in circus Dannebrog. For the 2005 season Freddie was back in Norway performing in circus Agora. Now he is ready for a month in Baldonis Christmas circus.

 

  Jevgenijs is back in Baldoni where he performed under the name Bro brothers. In this Christmas show he will perform two acts – a strapat act and a ladder entrée. Nis and Nisse Line will take us through the performance and perform an illusion act as well.

 

Everything will be in the sign of Christmass and the premiere will be on Trianglen (Copenhagen) on November 30th. For more information please contact circus Baldoni- a link can be found on the link pages.

 

In Scandinavia

 

Programmet for cirkus Baldonis jule cirkus er klar. En meget positiv overraskelse er at de fantastiske Kinesiske artister Gao Chen er tilbage i Baldoni. De fleste gæster i Baldoni i 2005 og i det Svenske cirkus Wictoria i 2006, vil kunne huske disse to par af tvillinger der er gift med hinanden. Men   mest kan vi huske disse fire dygtige artister for deres meget flotte numre. Denne gang vil de selvfølgelig optræde med nogle af deres kendte entréer men deres er også blevet plads til en premiere på et helt nyt tissue nummer.

 

Den Danske bord artist The Steckels vil også være repræsenteret i Baldoni. Freddie Steckel og hans partner er kendte i det meste af Skandinavien. The Steckels kunne ses i det Norske cirkus Merano i 2002, Cirkus Maximum i 2003. I 2004 var de i Danmark, hvor Isabella Enoch var hans partner i cirkus Dannebrog. I 2005 var Freddie Steckel tilbage i Norge, hvor han optrådte i cirkus Agora.

 

  Jevgenijs er tilbage i Baldoni, hvor han optrådte for et par år tilbage under navnet Bro brothers. I dette jule show vil han optræde med to numre – et strapat og et stige balance nummer. Nis og Nisse Line vil føre os igennem forestillingen, hvor de også vil præsentere et illusions nummer.

 

Alt vil stå i julens tegn og premieren vil foregå på Trianglen fra d.30. november. For mere information kan Cirkus Baldoni kontaktes via link siderne

Enshede circus Festival.

Lots of news from the European circus festival at the moment. This time from Enshede circus festival, where artists as Jimmy Folco will be included. Most people visiting circus Krone in Germany will remember this Italian clown from the recent years. In the just ended 2006 season Jimmy Folco was a part of the Norwegian circus Arnardo.

 

Also in Enshede will be the Russian clowns Yemelin and Co. This clown troupe is very original and very amusing when they were a part of circus Benneweis back in 1999. The Scandinavian people can look forward to the 2007 season because here the clown troupe will be back in the northern part of Europe. I have promised not to tell where so we just have to be a little patient.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Masser af nyt fra de forskellige circus festivaler i øjeblikket. Dernne gang er det fra Enshede cirkus festival, hvor artister som Jimmy Folco vil være på programmet. De fleste der har besøgt det Tyske cirkus Krone i de senere år vil huske denne Italienske reprise klovn. I 2006 sæsonen var Jimmy med det Norske cirkus Arnardo.

 

Også i Enshede cirkus festival er de Russiske reprise klovne Yemelin og Co. Denne klovne trup var meget originale og meget morsomme, da de var en del af det Danske cirkus Benneweis tilbage i 1999. Det Skandinaviske cirkus gæster kan se frem til sæsonen 2007, da disse enestående artister vil være at finde her i den nordlige del af Europa. Jeg har lovet ikke at afsløre i hvilket cirkus de vil arbejde, så der må man væbne sig med lidt tålmodighed.

Circus DVD.

In the last days where the Danish circus Dannebrog performed in Copenhagen, circus Scandinavia recorded the whole performance on video. It is Circus Scandinavia’s first production with fully professional equipment. The performance was recorded from four angels with proff. XM2 digital video cameras. A second performance was taken where close up clips was recorded and will be used in very short cut ins in the finished product.

 

The whole material is at the moment on the clipboard, where we use the professional program Adobe premiere pro. I can say that the result is very good so far and the finished product is very soon finished.

 

This product is the second performance that circus Scandinavia makes for circus Dannebrog but it is the first in professional quality. Last year circus Scandinavia recorded the performance but the quality was not good enough and we didn’t have the experience.

 

Unfortunately is the DVD not for sale but is used to give circus Scandinavia more experience in the future work where we will make promotion DVD’s for artists. We already have orders and the first is already made for the dogs and goat artists – Igen.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

I de sidste dage, hvor det Danske cirkus Dannebrog gav forestilling I københavn, indspillede Cirkus Scandinavia hele forestillingen på video. Det er Cirkus Scandinavia’s første indspilning med fuldt professionelt udstyr. Forestillingen blev indspillet fra fire vinkler med de professionelle Canon XM2 digitale kameraer. En anden forestilling blev indspillet, hvor der blev close up video, der vil blive brugt som små korte klip i det færdige produkt.

 

Hele materialet er i øjeblikket på klippe bordet, hvor vi bruger det det fuldt professionelle program – Adobe premiere Pro. Jeg kan allerede fortælle at resultatet er rigtig godt og det færdige produkt meget snart er færdigt.

 

Denne video er den anden forestilling som Cirkus Scandinavia laver for cirkus Dannebrog men denne er den første i professionel kvalitet. Sidste år lavede Cirkus Scandinavia også en hel forestilling på DVD men kvaliteten var ikke god nok grundet mangel på erfaring og udstyr.

 

Desværre vil den nye DVD ikke blive udbudt til salg men er lavet for at give Cirkus Scandinavia mere erfaring for fremtidens indspilninger, hvor det er planen at vi vil producere promotion DVD´s for artister. Vi har allerede lavet den første til hunde og gede artisterne – Igen.

 

September 18th.

Circus Dannebrog is close to the end of this season and today it was the last performance in Copenhagen. There is still a few performances left but not for Flying Michaels. Because of an old contract they left today and will not be a part of the performances in Dannebrog in the rest of the season.

 

Circus Dannebrog reports to CS that this season just has been fantastic and the last weeks in Copenhagen have been just great with more spectators than expected.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Cirkus Dannebrog er meget tæt på slutningen af sæsonen og I dag var sidste forestilling I København. Der er stadig enkelte forestillinger tilbage men ikke for de flyvende trapez artister – Flying Michaels. De har i dag haft sidste forestilling i Dannebrog, da de skal opfylde en kontrakt andet sted og vil derfor ikke være en del af Dannebrogs forestilling i resten af sæsonen.

 

Cirkus Dannebrog har reporteret at denne sæson har bare været fantastisk og de sidste uger i København er gået over alt forventning

 

September 15th.

Kids in Circus.

Yesterday circus Scandinavia had 22 kids in circus Dannebrog in Copenhagen. It is a tradition for circus Scandinavia to take the kids in circus twice a year. Dennie Enoch from circus Dannebrog was friendly enough to sell the tickets to reduced prices witch makes those circus trips possible. This time some of the kids were in the ring before the performance to learn how to ride mono bikes. The teacher was the world star bike artist Jimmy Enoch teaching the kids some tricks and stunts. Afterwards they saw the performance were the favourite of cause was Jimmi Enoch.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

I går var circus Scandinavia vært for 22 børn I circus Dannebrog I København. Det er en tradition for cirkus Scandinavia at invitere børn i cirkus 2 gange om året. Dennie Enoch fra Cirkus Dannebrog var så venlig at sælge billetterne til stærkt reducerede priser, hvilket er med til at disse arrangementer kan lade sig gøre. Denne gang var en række af børnene i manegen før forestillingen for at lære at køre på et hjulet cykel. Læren var verdens cykel artisten Jimmi Enoch der lærte børnene en række tricks og stunts. Efterfølgende så alle forestillingen hvor favoritten ikke overraskende var Jimmi Enoch.

Fumagalli

Most people just love the Italian star clown Fumagalli and his brother Darix. So do I and as a photographer he is for me, just a great target. He has a lot of funny faces – just a dream for the photo album. I have through the years taken a lot of photos of those funny brothers and the last series of pictures is taken September 9th. in circus Benneweis. Just enjoy the photos

 

In Scandinavian:

 

De fleste cirkus gæster er bare vilde med de Italienske stjerne klovne Fumagalli og Darix. Som fotograf er de bare et yndet mål for mine billeder. Fumagalli har en række fantastiske ansigtsudtryk bare en drøm at fotografere. Jeg har gennem årene taget mange fotos af disse morsomme brødre og den sidste serie blev taget d. 9 September i cirkus Benneweis. Billederne taler for sig selv så bare nyd dem.

Television premiere

This evening there was premiere in the Danish TV2 with their new program Circus Circus. We were told that a lot of well known Danes should live and train for a period in the Danish circus Benneweis. I did not know more than two of the “well known” Danes. That is maybe the reason for the company behind the broadcast- Look entertainment uses most of the first program (45 min) to present the “well-known” Danes. It is not possible already to give a proper review of the program but let us just hope that the production company hasn’t cut the whole thing to pieces as they did with their first circus production – That is circus.

 

Host in the program is the former ring master in Circus Arena – Bubber – he knows a lot about circus more than we can say about the production company behind the whole thing.

 

In Scandinavien

 

Her til aften var der premiere på Dansk TV2 med deres nye program serie – Cirkus Cirkus. Vi var blevet fortalt at en lang række kendte Danskere ville leve og træne for en periode i det Danske cirkus Benneweis. Desværre kendte jeg kun 2 af de medvirkende ”kendte”. Det er måske derfor produktion selskabet bag udsendelserne – Look entertainment har valgt at bruge det meste af det første afsnit (45 min) til at forklare hvem de ”kendte” er. Det er endnu ikke muligt at have en mening om programmet men lad os håbe at produktions selskabet ikke har klippet det hele sammen til ingenting som de gjorde med deres første cirkus produktion .- Sådan cirkus.

 

Vært i programmet er Bubber som har været med cirkus Arena i mange år, han har det mindste forstand på cirkus, hvilket er mere end vi kan sige om Look entertainment.

 

September 9th.

 

Gala in Benneweis

This evening there was gala premiere in circus Benneweis with a very special guest – her Royal highness princess Mary of Denmark. The performance was a charity performance where the money goes to people with a mental illness. A little disappointing was that not all seats were sold. Circus Scandinavia was seated on the first row and saw Fumagalli in good form entertain her Royal highness. Also in this performance was the winners of the competition brought in the Danish television “That is circus”.

 

The performance is normally presented by Judy Glosted and this evening there was a little help from the former ring master in circus Arena and host on kids TV in Denmark – Bubber.

 

By my side in this performance was Mr. John Cooper from England. John Cooper was here to review circus Benneweis and circus Dannebrog for the English circus magazine King Pole. John Cooper also provides circus Scandinavia with news from the whole world.

 

Here are a few pictures from the performance.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

I aften var der Galla I cirkus Benneweis med en helt speciel gæst – Hendes Kongelige højhed prinsesse Mary af Danmark. Forestillingen var en velgørenheds forestilling hvor entre indtægterne går til foreningen SIND. Lidt skuffende var at der ikke var udsolgt til denne forestilling. Cirkus Scandinavia sad ved ringside og så en helt veloplagt Fumagalli underholde Prinsesse Mary. Også inkluderet i denne forestilling var vinderne af TV konkurrencen ”Sådan Cirkus”.

 

Forestillingen er normal præsenteret af Judy Glosted og denne aften var der lidt ekstra hjælp at hente fra Cirkus Arenas gamle ringmaster og vært i Dansk børne TV – Bubber.

 

Ved min side ved forestillingen i aften var Hr. John Cooper fra England. John Cooper var her for at anmelde cirkus Benneweis og cirkus Dannebrog for det Engelske cirkus magasin – King Pole. John er den samme som også forsyner cirkus Scandinavia med cirkus nyheder fra hele verden.

 Her er lidt billeder fra forestillingen:

The Swedish artists and trick riders – Antony and Gary also known as the kosowiiks ends there career. In an age of only 26 and 23 years the 2 brothers have decided to stop. The kosowiiks has been seen in there own family circus – Circus Scala in many years but in the recent seasons the Kosowiiks has been in circus Arena in Denmark, Circus Agora in Norway and in circus Finlandia in Findland. The reason for they want to end their circus career is that both brothers are tired of the circus life. None of the Wiik brothers have any plan for the future.

Illusionist Igor Kio died.

The very famous Russian illusionist Igor Kio died yesterday on a hospital in Moscow. He died too soon in an age of only 62. Besides his fantastic illusionist acts he was the guy which included a ballet in circus for the first time. So when we see circus ballets these days we can thank Igor for this idea.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Den meget berømte Russiske illusionist Igor Kio døde I går d. 30. august kl. 10. i Moskva. Desværre en alt for tidlig død i en alder af kun 62 år. Udover sine fantastiske illusions numre kan vi takke Kio for at være manden der for første gang inkluderede en cirkus ballet i sine shows. Så når vi i dag kan sidde og nyde en af disse balleter i cirkus kan vi takke Igor for ideen.
