Next year it be possible to have musicians from Poland but Circus Areana has no intentions to replace their British band.. The band has a unique sound and plays a mixed repertoire with a very experimental part and a very traditional circus sound. The Arena Circus Band has one of the best circus sounds in Scandinavia and does it with only 4 musicians.

Xelo

The absolute fantastic diablo artist Xelo from Germany will perform in Paris from September 24th. He will perform in the cabaret Du Monte. Xelos dream is to be a clown in the future and his favourite clown is Joe Jackson Junior. I will agree that the American clown Joe Jackson was an absolute fantastic clown but I will hope that Xelo will continue with his diablo act because it is one of the best acts of its kind in the world.

Circus Scandinavia in circus with 43 kids.

For the second time this year, Circus Scandinavia was in circus with a lot of kids. In the spring we visited circus Arena and this time it was the Danish circus Benneweis in Copenhagen. The kids agreed that it was the young star juggler Alan Sulc they liked best.

Alan Sulc.

The crises in European circus could be one of the reasons for the star juggler - Alan Sulc not has any engagements for the 2005 season. A quality artist as Alan, would normally have engagements many years out in the future. After the end of the Benneweis season Alan is going to Japan for a short engagement, where the Danish table artists – Freddi Steckel and Isabella Enoch are signed too.
