New clown

A new clown is arriving in circus Dannebrog from May 1st. The clowns Toto Chabry and co. will leave Dannebrog for other contracts. The new clown is the reprise clown Rudi Brukson. Rudi will not be without family members in Denmark, because his Oncles is the Clown Fumagalli and Daris at the  moment working in circus Benneweis. It is not the first time for Rudi in Scandinavia because he worked in Benneweis in 1976 with his family under the name the Bruksons and again for Arena in 1989.

 

In the beginning the Spanish clowns The Gotys was contracted to Dannebrog but because of illness they suddenly cancelled the contract.  After the cancellation the health improved radically fast and suddenly they could work in the Italian circus Lidia Togni.

 In Scandinavian:

En ny klovn ankommer til circus Dannebrog fra 1 maj. Klovenene Toto Chabry og Co. Vil forlade Dannebrog for at opfylde deres kontrakter. Den nye klovn er reprise klovnen Rudi Brukson. Rudi vil ikke være i Danmark uden familie medlemmer, da hans 2 onkler er klovne paret Fumagalli og Daris, der i øjeblikket arbejder i cirkus Benneweis. Det er ikke første gang for Rudi her i Skandinavien, da han arbejdede i Benneweis i 1976 sammen med sin familie  -The Bruksons og igen for cirkus Arena i 1989.

 

I begyndelsen var det de Spanske klovne – The Gotys der skulle have været i Dannebrog men grundet pludselig opstået sygdom aflyste de kontrakten. Efter aflysningen blev helbredet underlig nok pludselig meget bedre og de kunne arbejde i det Italienske Cirkus Lidia Togni

Circus Dannebrog review ready in Monthly circus Magazine here

Season number 22.

It is season number 22 for the Swedish circus Olympia and the performance includes lots of nice artists from 10 different countries. The Danish pick pocket thief  Kenny Quinn is a part of the program and he is doing absolutely well here in Sweden. Circus Scandinavia saw the performance Saturday in a small town called Mellby Strand. Totally sold out for those two performances today is hopefully a sign for many years of quality entertainment in this small Swedish circus. A new 30 tent was bought before the season in the Swedish colours blue and yellow. There will be a full review – including pictures of cause, in the May issue of Circus Scandinavia.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Det er sæson nummer 22 for det Svenske cirkus Olympia og forestillingen inkluderer artister fra 10 forskellige lande. Den Danske gentleman tyv – Kenny Quinn er en del af programmet og han gør det rigtig godt her i Sverige. Cirkus Scandinavia så forestillingen lørdag i en lille by med navnet Mellby strand. Totalt udsolgt for dagens 2 forestillinger er forhåbentlig et tegn på mange års kvalitets forestillinger i dette lille Svenske cirkus. Et nyt 30 m. telt blev købt før sæsonen i de Svenske farver gul og hvid. Der vil blive en fuld anmeldelse med billeder i maj udgaven af cirkus Scandinavia cirkus magasin.

Photo exhibition

Today there was grand opening on a special photo exhibition on the Circus museum in Denmark. The photos are made by the Danish journalist Leif  Wivelsted with an old fashion analogue Hasselblad camera. All photos are in black and white and all taken in the Danish circus Arena the last 5 years.

 

The mayor opened the exhibition and surprised us all with a gift on 5 million Danish Kroner (800.000 Euro). Another special guest today was the African elephant Tonga and she was so thrilled, that she went inside the circus museum to welcome the guests. Lots of carrots were eaten before she went back to circus Arena with her father René Caselly. You can find a link to the museum on the link page

 

In Scandinavian:

 

I dag var der åbning af en speciel foto udstilling på cirkus museet i Danmark. Fotografierne er lavet af den Danske radio jounarlist Leif Wivelsted med et gammeldags analogt Hasselblad kamaer. All fotos er i sort hvid og alle taget i det Danske cirkus Arena de sidste 5 år.

 

Borgmesteren åbnede udstillingen og overraskede os alle med en gave på 5 millioner kroner. En anden speciel gæst i dag var den Afrikanske elefant Tonga. Hun var så begejstret at hun gik indenfor på museet for at sige velkommen til gæsterne. Masser af gulerødder blev spist før hun sammen med sin far – René Caselly tog tilbage til cirkus Arena. Du kan finde et link til museet på link siderne.

Toto Chabry

The fantastic Belgium clown Toto Chabry is signed to circus Dannebrog from now until the early May.  The reason is that the Gotys cancelled their contract with Dannebrog of personal reasons. Toot Chabry will start in Dannebrog to day and continue until he has to leave for another contract. Toto Chabry is a fantastic clown and seen many many times before in Scandinavia. The first time was in 1970 in the circus building in Copenhagen, again in 1973 also in Copenhagen. In 1980 he was on tour with circus Benneweis and was back in Denmark for the Arena 1986 tour. Last time we saw Toto in Scandinavia was in 1998, where he again could be seen in Benneweis. A few years ago he was performing in the amusement park “Bakken” where he was a part of Benny Schumanns Golden clown award.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Den fantastiske Belgiske klovn – Toto Chabry har skrevet kontrakt med circus Dannebrog frem til starten af maj. Grunden er at klovne duoen ”The Gotys” aflyste deres kontrakt med Dannebrog af personlige grunde. Toto Chabry vil starte i Dannebrog i aften og vil fortsætte indtil han skal tiltræde en anden aftale. Toto Chabry er en fantastisk klovn og han er set mange gange før i Skandinavien. Første gang var i 1970 i cirkus bygningen i København, igen i 1973 også i København. I 1980 var han på turne med cirkus Benneweis og var tilbage i Danmark for cirkus Arena i 1986. Sidste gang vi så Toto i Skandinavien var i 1998, hvor han igen kunne ses i Cirkus Benneweis. For et par år siden kunne han desuden ses på Dyrehavsbakken, hvor han var en del af Benny Schumanns – Golden clown award.

Clown festival

Clown festival in Svendborg (Denmark) from May 18th – May 21st. There will be clowns from a lot of countries but in my opinion is one of the best clowns the Danish guy Tonny Trifolikum. This guy is absolutely funny and his expression is unbelievable. No one, so far I remember, can keep so many tomatoes in his mouth in the world. For more info, please check the home page – Here

 

 In Scandinavian:

 

Klovne festival I Svendborg. Fra 18. maj til 21. maj. Der vil deltage klovne fra en lang række lande men efter min mening er en af de bedste klovne den Danske – Tonny Trifolikum.

Circus Skratt.

There has been a little discussion witch horse group there should be in circus Skratt in Sweden. It will be 12 stallions (6 white and 6 brown) from circus Arenas stables, performed by Tim Delbosq. It is the same horses as Susanne Berdino performed in the 2005 season in circus Arena and the Ahoy Christmas circus in Netherlands 2005/2006. The Dromedaries will not go to Sweden as first planned but they will perform in Summerland south together Arenas 6 black Friser horses.

Der har været lidt diskussioner om hvilke heste gruppe der skulle være I det Svenske cirkus Skratt. Det vil blive de 12 hingste (6 hvide og 6 brune) fra cirkus Arenas stalde og fremført af Tim Delbosq. Det er de samme heste som Susanne Berdino optrådte med i Arenas 2005 sæson og i det Hollandske jule cirkus – Cirkus Ahoy i vinteren 2006/2006.

Althoff Jacobi.

A few years ago the Austrian circus Althoff Jacobi was sold. Some times I’m wondering where all those nice circus wagons are now. Some of them are in the Danish circus Arena, some in Circus Skratt in Sweden and sometimes you just find one more. Yesterday when I was visiting circus Arli, Alexande Arli showed me their new kitchen wagon and told me that it was from Althoff Jacobi.

In Scandinavian:

 For et par år siden blev det Østrigske cirkus Althoff Jacobi solgt. Nogle gange tænker jeg over hvor alle disse smukke vogne er placeret nu. Nogle af dem er i cirkus Arena, nogle i cirkus Skratt i Sverige og nogle gange finder man pludselig en mere. I går da jeg besøgte cirkus Arli, viste Alexander Arli mig deres nye køkken vogn og fortalte at den kom fra netop Althoff Jacobi.

Circus Agora.

Circus Agora in Norway is on the road with a very nice program here in 2006 – At the same time it is a jubilee season for director Jan Ketil – it is 25 years since he started as a slack wire artist. He has been performing in many Scandinavia circuses as Arena in 1984 and in Merano 1982 but now he has his own circus Agora. In the program we can find Wolfgang Lauenburgers horses reengaged from the 2005 season. An Elephant from the fantastic Scholl family as we could see in Arena 1996 , In Maximum 97 and Merano 1998 where they also performed a combined horse and elephant entrée. In 1996 The Scholl brothers performed a wheel of death act, which went wrong and Kalle Scholl was hospitalized. In Agora there will be a single elephant because the second one stays in the winter quarter of Sonny Frankello.  A dog act with the name “Lollos dogs” is included as well.

 The big star in this performance must be Enrique Romero with his outstanding Rola Rola act. Enrique has been working many many years and he is still going strong in an age of 70. Enrique is just a fantastic artist and he was seen the first time in Scandinavia when he was a part of Circus Meranos premiere season back in 1976. He was back in Merano again for the season in 1983 and again in 1989 where he toured with Meranos red unit. This year there was 2 circus Merano, one in Norway (blue unit) and one touring in Sweden and Norway (red unit). In 1990 and 1992 he was on tour in the Danish circus Benneweis.

The clown part in Agora is done by Pedro Revelino seen in the Swedish circus Olympia in the 2004 season. Angelis a very nice Russian barre entrée from Romania  seen in Brazil Jack in 2005.

Great news for Scandinavian circus fans.

A few days ago I wrote that the huge German circus krone would be in the town Stadte a little outside Hamburg. They will still be in this town but the Krone goes to Flensburg where they will be from August 1st. Flensburg is the closest you can get to Denmark and it is a great opportunity to see one of the biggest circus shows touring in Europe. For those there have been in Krone the last years can look forward to many new entrees. For the complete artists program, please visit the Circus Krone web page.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

For få dage siden, skrev jeg at det kæmpe store circus Krone ville være I byen Stadte, lidt uden for Hamborg. De vil stadig besøge denne by men derefter vil Krone tage til Flensborg, hvor de vil have premiere d. 1. august. Flensborg er det tætteste man kan komme til Danmark og dette er en god chance for at se en af de største turnerende cirkus shows i Europa. For dem der har været i cirkus Krone de sidste år, kan se frem til mange nye numre. For det komplette program, venligst besøg cirkus Krones hjemme side.
