Winter circus Martin Hanson.

It seems as Martin Hansons winter circus is ready with the new winter 2007/08   program. As usual Arlette Hanson presents a very nice and strong program from November 30th – January 27th. Again there are artists being on current tour in Scandinavia included. In the program, we find the very funny clown duo – Duo Bobylev. This Russian couple is at the moment on tour in the Danish circus Benneweis and in the 2006 season they amused the Norwegian people in circus Merano. Duo Bobylev is very original with lots of great entreés. Karl Ramwell is a fantastic juggler with a very modern style and he is at the moment on tour with the Swedish circus Maximum. Fausto Scorpions with their very very charming Icarian game entré. Fausto can be seen in the Danish circus Benneweis   and in 2006 we could enjoy this trio in the Swedish circus Maximum. From the Fausto Scorpions family the daughter – Stephanie May are doing a hoola hop act. This act has not been presented in Scandinavia before.

 

Also in the program we find Pavel Doubek with horses, Duo Impression with strapats, Andrejs Fjodorovs with pigeons, Jeanne Durand  with handstand. There will be premiere for Hansons winter circus in Waalwijk (Theater De Leest) ending January 27th. in Roosendaal (Schouwburg De kring).

Det ser ud til at Winter cirkus Martin Hanson er klar med deres vinter 2007/08 program. Som sædvanligt har cirkus direktør Arlette Hanson fået sammensat et vældigt stærkt program med premiere d. 30. november og slutter d. 27. januar. Endnu engang er der en del artister inkluderet der for tiden arbejder i Skandinavien. I programmet finder vi de rigtig morsomme klovne duo – Duo Bobylev. Dette Russiske par er for tiden på turne med det Danske cirkus Benneweis og i sæson 2006 var det Norge og cirkus Merano der præsenterede Duo Bobylev. Duo Bobylev er meget originale og har rigtig mange morsomme entréer: Karl Ramwell er en fantastisk jonglør med en dejlig moderne stil og han er for tiden på turne med det Svenske cirkus Maximum. Fausto Scorpions, med deres yderst charmerende Icarian nummer. Fausto er ligeledes på turne med cirkus Benneweis og året før var det cirkus Maximum der havde fornøjelsen. Fra samme familie præsenteres Stephanie May med et hoola hop nummer. Dette nummer er ikke før set i Skandinavien.

 

Også i programmet finder vi Pavel Doubek med heste, Duo Impression med strapats, Andrejs Fjodorovs med duer, Jeanne Durand med håndstand. Der vil være premiere i byen Waalwijk og turne ender i Roosendaal

Hula hop rings

A new world record in the amount of rings are made by the Danish girl – Sofie Schwartz. Sofie is only 12 years and she managed to take 107 rings at one time. The rings were thrown 7 at the time and she was beating the old record on 100 rings, done by the Australian girl Kareena Oates. The record is not official because nobody from the Gunniess book of records was represented. The flying super kids, where Sofie comes from will work on it, so Sofies record can be official.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

En ny verdens rekord er sat i antallet af Hoola hop ringe af en Dansk pige - Sofie Schwartz. Sofie er kun 12 år og klarede at svinge med ikke mindre end 107 ringe på én gang. Ringene blev kstet til hende 7 ad gangen og hun slog den gamle rekord på 100 ringe lavet af den Australske pige Kareena Oates. Rekorden er desværre ikke officiel, da der ikke var repræsentanter fra – Guinness book of records. Flying Super kids, hvor Sofie kommer fra vil arbejde på sagen, så hun kan blive den retmæssige ejer af denne verdens rekord.

Norwegian circus culture.

The Norwegian writer – Herman Berthelsen has started to write the Norwegian circus history. Herman Berthelsen knows the most about the Norwegian entertainment business and has for 23 years been in charge for a Norwegian culture magazine. Herman Berthelsen does not expect the new book selling in thousands of copies and he hope that the Norwegian government will help with an economic grant.

 

There don’t exist so many books about circus in Norway, so this new initiative will be very nice. The Danish circus history is written in many different books but if I should point out one book it would be Anders Enevig and his 3 books concerning the Danish circus through the years. In Sweden there are a lot of books too but concerning circus history, it is Per Arne Wahlberg and his fantastic book about the Swedish circus history.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Den Norske forfatter – Herman Berthelsen er startet på at skrive den Norske cirkus historie. Herman Berthelsen ved det meste om Norsk kultur historie og har i 23 år været redaktør for et Norsk kultur magasin. Herman Berthelsen regner ikke med at den nye bog bliver det der kaldes en kiosk basker men håber på støtte fra den Norske kultur råd.

 

Der findes desværre ikke et stort antal bøger om Norsk cirkus, så dette nye tiltag vil være et kærkomment produkt for Norsk historie. I Danmark er der skrevet et utal af bøger om cirkus og en direkte gennemgang af Dansk cirkus historie blev udgivet i 3 bind. Disse bøger er skrevet af Anders Enevig og kan vel beskrives som det bedste opslagsværk omkring dette emne. I Sverige findes også en lang række cirkus bøger men omkring den almene Svenske cirkus historie er det Per Arne Wåhlbergs værk – Cirkus i Sverige.

Maximum pictures.

Not the best pictures this time from Maximum maybe caused by an old camera? Anyway some of them were okay after all. Here is a few from the performance taken when Maximum performed in Helsingborg. Directly to the pictures here

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Ikke de bedste billeder denne gang fra cirkus Maximum. Grunden er muligvis at der denne gang blev brugt et lidt ældre kamera? Dog var der dog nogle der kunne bruges efter en god tur igennem Photo Shop. Så her er lidt billeder alle taget ved forestillingen i Helsingborg. Direkte til billederne - her
