Burned down hard disk

Real men don’t take back ups of the computer hard disk. Circus Scandinavia does but to gain more space on my working computer I deleted all my pictures and a lot of other stuff. Nothing to worry about because everything is backed up on a external hard disk. A few days ago I bought an extra external disk and the idea was of cause to take back ups of the other external hard disk. What happened was, when the disk was ready to deliver data to the new Hard disk it burned down. All ´circus Scandinavia’s 40 thousands pictures, hours of video recordings and a lot of other stuff is gone.

 

I know it is possible to recall the data on the destroyed disk (if you are lucky). So if anybody out there knows somebody who can and have the knowledge please let me know.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Rigtige mænd tager ikke kopier af sin harddisk. Cirkus Scandinavia gør dette men for at få mere plads på min arbejdes computer, slettede jeg alle filer på denne sammen med en del andre ting. Ikke noget at bekymre sig om, da alt var gemt på en ekstern back up harddisk. For nogle dage siden købte jeg endnu en ekstern harddisk og det var ideen at tage back up af den anden hard disk, der nu alene indeholdt alt mit cirkus materiale. Hvad der skete, var at da det hele var klart til overførsel til den nye disk, stopper den og er tilsyneladende ødelagt. Alt cirkus Scandinavia’s ca. 40 tusinde cirkus billeder, mange timers video optagelser og en bunke af andet materiale er derfor væk.

 

Jeg ved at det er muligt at genskabe indholdet af en sådan disk (Hvis man er heldig). Så hvis nogen derude kender nogle der ved hvordan eller kender nogen, vil jeg være dybt taknemlig. Venligst kontakt mig her

European youth circus.

Time for the European youth circus competition 2006. Lots of skilful young artists under 25 years of age are ready to compete in lots of different artist disciplines. European youth circus has a long tradition and the first year it was held was back in 1988.

 

The festival takes place in Weisbaden and especially Sweden has delivered a lot of young talents through the years. In 1992 the Swedish mono bike troupe – Bellboys, won a gold medal. In 1993 the Swedish mono bike troupe – The Wheelies there could go back to Sweden with a gold medal. Again in 1996 the gold was placed in Sweden and this time it was Olana troupe. Unfortunately we haven’t seen a lot of those artists the resent years.

 

There is no doubt that the festival can open doors for those young artists and a lot of artists we can see in Scandinavia has been competing in European youth circus. Examples is the fantastic star juggler Alan Sulc (Benneweis 2004 and Merano 2003), The Farellos on their comic monobike could be seen in Benneweis in 2005 and in the same program, the outstanding hoola hop artist Anton Monarstyrky.

 

The European youth festival starts November 2nd and runt to November 5th.  

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Så er tiden nået til European youth circus festival 2006. Mange talentfulde unge artister under 25 år er klar til at konkurrere i en række forskellige cirkus discipliner. European youth cirkus har en lang tradition og det første år var helt tilbage i 1988.

 

Festivallen finder sted i Weisbaden og specielt Svenskerne har leveret rigtig mange talenter igennem årene. I 1992 var det den Svenske trup – Bellboys der vandt en guld medalje. I 1993 var det den Svenske trup – The Wheelies, der kunne rejse tilbage til Sverige med en guld medalje. Igen i 1996 var guldet placeret i Sverige og denne gang med truppen – Olana. Desværre har vi ikke set rigtig meget til disse talenter de sidste år.

 

Der er ingen tvivl om at denne festival kan åbne døre for disse unge talenter for en mange af disse artister der har deltaget i festivalen er set i Skandinaviske cirkuser. Som eksempler kan nævnes den helt fantastiske jonglør Alan Sulc (Benneweis 2004 og Merano i 2003). The Farellos med deres komiske et hjulede cykel nummer kunne opleves i Benneweis i 2005, hvor der i samme program også var hula hop artisten Anton Monarstyrsky.

 

Den Europæiske youth cirkus festival starter d. 2. november og slutter d.5 november.

Anton Monarstyrsky, Farellos and Alan Sulc has all been a part of European youth circus

Circus Kenny review

Circus Kenny makes a shopping mall circus with two different performances a year - one in the autumn and one in the winter time. Both performances run for one week or ten days. This year the autumn performance is expanded with two days because last year there were so many spectators. Maybe it is a shopping mall performance but the quality is just great. Circus Kenny has always presented the best artists and not a low standard set up.

 

Also this performance this year in Rosengaard centre in Odense is very nice and with two or three performances a day there is enough to look after. The performance is a half performance witch means there is no break and it run for almost 40 min. Today was the last performance for the bicycle artists Jimmy and his Cousin Edward Enoch. Tomorrow they are a part of a show in Paris.

 

The performance was led by the Swedish mono bike artist Malthe Knapp. Malthe has just ended the summer season where he has performed in the Variety show in Tivoli garden in Copenhagen. Malthe Knapp is one of the most professional artist we have here in Scandinavia and he has been a part of almost all circuses in Scandinavia. He has been several times in the Norwegian circus Agora, in circus Scott, Olympia and Skratt all in Sweden, in the Danish circus Arena and Circus BonBon. Last year he was a part of the fantastic circus Show in Germany - Circus Flic Flac where he had an enormous success. He could have stayed there because his very modern style fits perfectly in Flic Flac. If any one is interested it is possible to buy the performance from Flic Flac and it includes Malthes outstanding act.

 

His entrée in Kenny is shorter than normal and that is caused by the limit of time there is in Kenny. As usual there was the well known Malthe Knapp tempo and a very modern sound. In my opinion the best part of the act is the very high mono bikes he uses in the end. The whole ting is ended with an extremely small bike where he runs on the piste.

 

A new act presented as the super kids covers over David and Victoria Enoch and Steve and Jones Caveagna. It is build up as a street act where Steve plays Diablo together with David Enoch. Steve is a great diablo player and he has a great attitude in this act. After a few tricks Steve Caveagna was replaced with his older brother Jones showing skill full juggling with David Enoch and later expanded with Victoria Enoch. It is a nice act, young and with modern music and there is no doubt, that it went right to the hearts of the younger part of the audience.

 

 

Peter Freeman alias Old Regans came right from the Swedish circus Maximum, where he was on tour this summer. Since then Peter has stayed in the Dannebrog winter quarter in the southern part of Denmark and he made as usual a very charming act. He still uses two dogs and a donkey and it is one of the best vagabond acts in the world. The 2 dogs (a Golden retriever and a short haired fox terrier) are as usual very naughty and teases old Regnas.

 

 

The Musical Clowns – The Caveagnas was a part of the Danish circus Baldoni. Then they were a part of Circus Dannebrog in the end of their season. Caveagnas are great musicians and especially Theodoro and his son Jones can play the brain out of people’s heads but also the last son Steve is very skill full. They have a lot of nice gags included in their almost 15 minute’s entrée but they need a story in the act.  The youngest son – Steve is extremely talented but he presents his name as “Sex Machine” and in my best opinion, there is no one there is, when they are 15 years old. A good story line in the act and a little more discipline, would make Caveagnas one of the best clown acts in the future.

 

 

Last act was the bicycle acts the Haddies Jr. jr. Edward have replaced his uncle - Dennie Enoch and performs now with his cousin Jimmy. The act was almost similar to the act there was performed in the start of the circus Dannebrog performance until Dennie was hurt under a show. The act was then rearranged and Dennie was replaced by Melanie Kasselowsky. Now the 16 years old Edward Enoch is a part of the very famous and very traditional act. Bicycle act is a family tradition in the Enoch family and Jimmy and Edwads grand parents – Haddie and Solveigh Enoch, have been travelling in most of the world with a bicycle act.

Jimmy Enoch.

Jimmy Enoch is a fantastic bicycle artist and he controls both the ordinary bicycle and the mono bike as well. As written before circus Scandinavia has recorded the whole Dannebrog performance 2006 where jimmy was a part of the show. The whole project was for internal use only in circus Dannebrog but it would be a shame not to show a part of it. Therefore is it a pleasure to present Jimmy Enoch and the whole act from 2006 here on Circus Scandinavia. Hit the link below and see him and Melanie doing a very well qualified bicycle act.

Jimmy Enoch here 

In Scandinavian:

 

Jimmy Enoch er en fantastisk cykel artist og han behersker bade den mere almindelige cykel samt den et hjulede model. Som skrevet for nogle dage siden, har cirkus Skandinavia optaget hele showet forestillingen fra 2006, hvor Jimmy var en del af dette show. Hele projektet er lavet til intern brug i cirkus Dannebrog men det ville være en skam ikke at vise en lille del af forestillingen. Derfor er det en fornøjelse at præsentere Jimmy Enoch og hele hans nummer fra 2006 her på Cirkus Skandinavia. Tryk på linket neden under og se Jimmy og Melanie lave et yderst kvalificeret cykel entre.

Pressemeddelelse Cirkusmuseet efterårsferien

 

Pjerrot på Cirkusmuseet

Cirkusmuseet holder åbent hele efterårsferien og byder blandt andet på optræden for hele familien med Pjerrot.

Mandag d. 16/10 til og med torsdag d. 19/10 vil Pjerrot i skikkelse af Morten Hansen mime og fortælle historien om hele sin ”familie”. Her vil du høre om hans evige kærlighed Columbine, hans store rival Harlekin og hans strenge arbejdsgiver Kassander. Alle dage vil forestillingen finde sted kl. 13 og billetter kan reserveres ved henvendelse til Cirkusmuseet på tlf. 36 78 69 67 eller e-mail cirkusbyen@hvidovre.dk. Billetterne koster 25 kr. for voksne og 15 kr. for pensionister og børn.

 

Morten Hansen har i over 25 år optrådt som Pjerrot blandt andet på Det Kongelige Teater og i Tivoli. Igennem 1000 forestillinger har han udviklet sit mimiske talent, så han i dag fremstår som en af de ypperste mimere i Danmark. Det er en stor oplevelse, der venter publikum, når Morten Hansen tager masken på og optræder som Pjerrot.

 

Der er en helt speciel grund til at netop Morten Hansens Pjerrotfigur mimer. For 400 år siden optrådte Pjerrot nemlig i Paris. Her opnåede han stor succes sammen med Harlekin, Columbine og Kassander. De etablerede teatre følte sig truet på deres levebrød, og de fik derfor gennemtrumfet, at de som de eneste måtte tale og synge fra scenen. I stedet for begyndte Pjerrot og hele ”familien” at mime, hvorved pantomimeteatret opstod. I dag kan man opleve det i Tivoli, men i efterårsferien er det Cirkusmuseet, der kan præsentere teaterformen.

 

Forestillingen finder sted på Cirkusmuseet, Hovedporten 6, Avedørelejren, 2650 Hvidovre. Museet holder åbent hele ferien fra kl. 11-15 dog lukket lørdage. Mere information på www.cirkusmuseum.dk. Arrangementet er en del af HUR´s efterårskampagne.

Animals in Circus

Now it is released and circus Scandinavia has seen the new DVD for kids called Animals in Circus. A few days ago I wrote a little about the new DVD but now I can tell that it is a very nice DVD. The DVD is absolutely for kids but worth the money if you are interested in circus and their animals. The DVD takes us through the animal handling, the training and the performance. All animal acts are taken from the just ended summer tour in circus Dannebrog. It is very nice to see the care for the animals and at the same time a nice document to show people how well looked after those animals are. A single act and artist it not from the Dannebrog performance but is the Danish sea lion trainer Steven Pedersen where he performed in the Danish winter circus Kenny in Odense.

 

The language on the DVD is original witch means German, English and Danish. A few comments on Danish are made as a voice over but you can still easily hear the original spoken words.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

Nu er den udkommet og Cirkus Scandinavia har set den nye DVD for born med titlen “Dyr i circus”. For et par dage siden skrev jeg lidt om den nye DVD men nu kan jeg fortælle at denne DVD er virkelig god, DVD én er så absolut for børn men er pengene værd for os som er interesserede i cirkus og deres dyr. DVD én følger os igennem det daglige samvær med dyrene, træningen og til sidst ser vi forestillingen. Alle numre er taget for den nyeligt afsluttede sommer turne med cirkus Dannebrog. Det er meget positivt at se den omsorg der er for dyrene og samtidigt et godt dokument og vise udenforstående hvor velpassede disse dyr er. Et enkelt nummer kommer ikke fra Dannebrog men er den Danske sø løve træner Steven Pedersen da han optrådte i vinter cirkus Kenny i Odense.

 

Sproget på DVD én er original, hvilket vil sige Tysk, Engelsk og Dansk. Få kommentarer på Dansk er lavet som voice over men det er stadig muligt at høre den original tale.

Old Fashion circus

The museum in Denmark for old farm houses is there from October 5th. to October 22nd  an old fashion circus visit the museum. The whole museum is called “frilandsmuseet” and directly translated it most be something like the free country museum or Open air museum. Many many old houses are there and now the village will have a circus as a visitor. It is build up as a circus as we could meet over 100 years ago. That includes many old fashion characters as Pjerrot and Columbine. The artists and actors comes from the Tivoli garden ballet and I´m sure it will be a nice experience. The museum is a part of the Danish national museum and admission is free.

 

In Scandinavian:

 

På Frilandsmuseet I Lyngby er der fra d. 5. oktober til d. 22. oktober besøg af et gammeldags cirkus. Landsbyen vil få besøg af et cirkus som vi kunne møde det for 100 år siden.

Last performance.

As most circus people knows the last performance can be full of jokes and surprises. The last circus Dannebrog performance September 24th. was no exception. As we see can on the picture is the Swiss juggler Eddy Carello been included in the circus ballet. The other picture is the tent workers just ended their work and the last photo is taken before they go home for holiday.

Som man kan se på billedet, er jongløren Eddy Carello blevet indlemmet i cirkus balletten. Det andet billede er telt arbejderne der lige har afsluttet deres arbejde og det sidste foto er taget før de rejser hjem på en velfortjent ferie.

Circus Bronett

It seems that circus Bronett will try to have premiere in 2007. Henry Bronett says that the Swedish circus Bronett will have premiere in 2007. It was the plan to have circus Bronett on the road in 2005 and 2006 but he did not succeed. Henry Bronett is one of the owners of the now closed circus Scott. In 2006 it was even possible to buy tickets for the premiere in Malmo but for some unknown reasons everything was cancled.

 

In Scandinavian;:

 

Det ser ud som om at cirkus Bronett endnu engang vil forsøge sig med premiere i 2007. Henry Bronett udtaler at de vil have premiere for det Svenske cirkus i 2007. Det var planen at have cirkus Bronett på landevejen i både 2005 og 2006 men uden succes. Henry Bronett var en af ejerne af det nu lukkede cirkus Scott. I 2006 var det tillige muligt at købe billetter til premieren i Malmø men af ukendte grunde blev dette aldrig til noget.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

October 1st.

Circus Arena 2007

Circus Arena has finished the planning for the program 2008 long time before the 2007 season even starts on Bellahoj. In the 2007 program there will be some well known artists. René and Alexia Casselly will perform a new African elephant act done as the Hungarian post.   

 

All Arena and Casselly kids will be in the ring in a new Act called the jockey kids. The Two Casselly kids and all Benny Berdinos Grandchildren – Stephanie, Oliver, Natasha, Charmaine and Patric have all worked hard the last year to present this new act to the Arena premiere 2007.

 

Marylou Casselly have also worked hard to be ready with a brand new tissue act but at the moment it not sure , it will be included in the performance   

 

Back in Arena will be the Spanish clowns Rivelinos doing a brand new tapestry act. Rivelionos was a part of the just ending circus Maximum season.

 

Suzanne Berdino will of cause be a part of the show and the clown BonBon as well. BonBon will this year not be alone because he will have a little help from the clown Mr. Chap. Mr. Chap have been with the Swedish circus Skratt this summer and a few months in the Danish amusement park – BonBon land. Mr. Chap will perform his well-known boxing act.

 

 In the new show there will be a circus ballet included and it is a very modern river dance group called National dance group of Ireland. The Dance group includes 12 highly educated Irish dancers.

 

The sensation in this 2007 production is with no doubt the living cannon ball queen Miss Valencia. Her name is Robin Valencia and she works at the moment in Black pool tower circus In England. Robin is from USA and should be the only female human cannonball artist in the world.

 

Also back in Circus Arena will be the English sea lion trainer Ingo Steibner. Ingo is very well known here in Scandinavia were we the recent years have seen him in many different circuses. Merano 2004, Maximum 2005 and in this season Ingo amused the spectators in the Danish amusement park - Summer land south.

 

The Spiders is a very strong circus group from China. They will perform a double trapeze act and this group, together with Robin Valencia, will be the guarantee for the thrilling acts in the show.

 

There is no doubt, that the new Arena 2007 show will be a draw when Arena opens at Bellahoj March 2007

 

In Scandinavian

 

Cirkus Arena I Danmark er for længst færdig med programlægningen af deres 2008 program og det endda langt tid før at deres 2007 program har premiere på Bellahøj til foråret. I Deres kommende 2007 program vil der være nogle meget velkendte artister. René og Alexis Casselly vil præsentere Ungarsk post på elefant ryg, et nummer man normalt kun ser på hest.

 

Alle Arena børn samt Casselly´s to børn vil præsentere et helt nyt nummer der bliver kaldt Jockey kids. Alle Benny Berdinos børnebørn - Stephanie, Oliver, Natasha, Charmaine og Patric har øvet dette nummer I hele den forgangne sæson for at være klar til premieren 2007

 

Merry Lou Casselly som i 2006 præsenterede et helt fantastisk kautchuk nummer arbejder også hårdt på et nyt tissue nummer. Om dette nummer bliver klar er på nuværende tidspunkt uvist.

 

Tilbage i Arena er den Spanske klovne trup – The Rivelinos. Rivelinos vil i år præsenterer et helt nyt tapetserer nummer. Rivelinos var i sidste sæson med det Svenske cirkus Maximum.

 

Suzanne Berdino vil selvfølgelig også være en del af forestillingen og præsentere heste fra egne stalde. Hvilke nummer og hvilke heste er endnu ikke bestemt. Det er vel ingen overraskelse at den Danske klovn BonBon tager endnu en sæson i Arena men i år bliver han ikke alene om reprise rollen, fordi også Mr. Chap vil være med og præsentere sin velkendte bokse entre. Mr. Chap var sidste år med det Svenske cirkus Skratt og et par måneder i den Danske forlystelses park – BonBon land.

 

I det nye show er der inkluderet en 12 ”mand” stor Irsk danse trup. Denne trup er en højst kvalificeret river dance ensemble og der er ingen tvivl om at denne trup vil sprede en meget flot stemning.

 

Sensationen i årets forestilling bliver uden tvivl den kvindelige levende kanonkugle – Miss Valencia. Hendes navn er Robin Valencia og hun arbejder i øjeblikket i Black Pool tower i en forestilling udelukkende med kvinder. Robin er Amerikaner og skulle efter sigende være den eneste nulevende kvindelige kanon kugle.

 

Også tilbage i Arena er den Engelske sø løve træner Ingo Steibner. Ingo er efterhånden et meget kendt ansigt her i Skandinavien, hvor han i de seneste år har arbejdet i mange cirkus her i norden. I det Norske cirkus Merano i 2004, Svenske Maximum i 05 og i denne sæson har Ingo og hans søløver muntret sig i den Danske forlystelses park – Sommer land Syd.

 

The Spiders er en meget stærk gruppe fra Kina. De vil præsentere et formidabelt dobbelt trapez nummer og denne gruppe sammen med Robin vil garantere får gyset.

 

Der er ingen tvivl om at denne Arena produktion vil blive et tilløbs stykke når sæsonen starter på Bellahøj sidst i marts.

New links

Time to update the links page with some new and interesting links. The first is the very well known juggler Mr Eddy Carello. Eddy is one of the worlds most skill full and very modern jugglers. His acts are both full of tempo (those two I have seen) and with modern ideas. Eddy Carello is absolutely not one of those boring jugglers doing traditional tricks and stunts. His best act is with no doubt his drum act, where he bounces balls on the drums. In this way he makes a fantastic rhythm and gives his act what needs to take the audience with storm.

 

Eddy Carello was in this season a part of circus Dannebrog on the tour around in Denmark.

 

The second link belongs to the circus friends in Holland also called De Piste. It is rare to see such a nice web page. Please take a look on this page where most is written in Dutch but if you take a closer look then you find out that Dutch is readable for us in Scandinavia. Their new magazine from September includes material about the Danish circus Arena director Mr. Benny Berdino and his daughter Suzanne Berdino. Suzanne has the honour to be on the front page.  

 Links can be found on the link page

In Scandinavian

 

Tid for at opdatere link siderne med et par nye og interesante links. Det første er fra den velkendte jonglør Mr. Eddy Carello. Eddy er en af verdens mest talente fulde og meget morderne jonglør. Hans numre er begge fuld af tempo (De 2 jeg har set) og med meget moderne ideer. Eddy Carello er absolut ikke en kedelig jonglør der laver traditionelle tricks og stunts. Hans bedste nummer er uden tvivl hans tromme nummer, hvor han kaster bolde på trommerne. PÅ denne måde laver han helt fantastiske rytmer og giver sit nummer hvad der behøves for at tage puplikum med storm.

 

Eddy Carello var i denne sæson en del af cirkus Dannebrogs forestilling på tur rund i Danmark.

 

Det andet link tilhører cirkus vennerne i Holland også kaldet De Piste. Det er sjældent at se en så flot Internet side. Venligst tag et kig på denne side hvor det meste er skrevet på Hollandsk men hvis man nærlæser finder man ud af at Hollandsk faktisk er muligt at læse for os i Skandinavien. Deres nye magasin fra september inkluderer materiale fra den Danske cirkus Arena direktør Mr. Benny Berdino og hans datter Suzanne Berdino. Suzanne har i øvrigt æren af at pryde forsiden.
