Freezing artists in circus Baldoni

When the artists from Mombassa in Africa showed up in Copenhagen, they had no idea how cold it can be in Denmark. The guys from Africa showed in summer clothes and had no idea about the temperatures in Denmark this time of the year. Last time this African troupe were in Denmark was in August where the temperature was around 30 degrees C. 90 degress F. That’s not the case now and René Marvin from Circus Baldoni had to buy winter clothes for those guys – Gloves, boots and others to keep them warm..

 

Yesterday there was rehearsals in the tent and Baldoni will be ready for the summer tour starting April 3rd.

45 kids in circus.

Circus Scandinavia invited yesterday 45 kids in circus Arena.. They arrived 1 hour before the performance where they had a guided tour around in circus. After the performance Sonny Frankello took Mahler in the ring for elephant riding. All the kids got a ride on this wonderful animal. It was a very nice evening and all the kids were very impressed by the artists, especially Xelo (Diablo) and Claudia Bremlov (antipode).

Circus Dannebrog 2004 program.

Circus Dannebrog in Denmark has released their summer 2004 program. It seem to be a very nice and strong program with lots of family members included. The speciality in the Enoch family is their fantastic bicycle act where it seems to be the next generation who is taken over step by step. When I saw the act in the last season I was very impressed by the younger members of the family, they were really good. Reengaged is Casselly and his Camels, he has been in Dannebrog for many years now, so it wasn’t a surprise to see him again this season. He is also in charge for the elephants and calls his act for Berny´s Angels.

 

Here is the program:

 

Ring master – Agnete Louise Enoch.

Katja Enoch is in charge of Dannebrogs own horses.

Circus Flic Flac the German cirque du Soleil.

The German circus Flic Flac is an absolute positive experience. Circus Scandinavia visits the top modern circus in the weekend and saw the performance. Circus Flic Flac are at the moment in the North of Germany and it is possible for the Scandinavian people to experience another kind of circus.

 

There is no animals in Flic Flac and there is no saw dust either. There is a stage where the artist works but everything else is as a normal circus. Immediately when you arrive there is a difference.. Everything is dark and almost all colours are black there is a nice range of Circus souvenirs including many different T-shirts, books, CD with the Flic Flac music, lighters, toys and the whole performance on DVD including interviews and backstage footage. It is rare with videos from any circus but it is extremely rare that any circuses are selling DVD. There is only two circuses that I know of in Europe selling DVDs and Flic Flac are one of them.

The Flic Flac bar is very nice and the atmosphere is very special everywhere, mysteries and very exiting.

 

The artists in Flic Flac are young and very talented mixed with some acts with more experience. It is build up as a story and are sometimes scary but very visual. The performance is, because of that, not for minor kids but can be seen with mum and dad if you are over 9 years.

 

The light show is fantastic, lot of lasers, smoke and much much more. Lots of other ordinary European circus could learn very much of the highly visual light effect used in Flic Flac. The Music is a super hard core rock band and they fits beautifully to the acts. The music can of cause be bought and it is a very nice souvenir to gain and hear the music again when you come back home.

 

The view in Flic Flac are extremely well form all seats and there is room for 1400 spectators.

 

Flic Flac are highly entertaining and Circus Scandinavia can absolutely recommend a visit and the 26 Euros are worth the money for the best view.

 

For more details please go to the Flic Flac Internet page. There are information’s about everything. If you can’t go to Flic Flac, it is possible to buy the DVD directly from the circus but you have to pay in advance but please do – Flic Flac is worth it.

Circus Benneweis 2004 program.

As one of the last circus in Scandinavia circus Benneweis released their 2004 summer program. Last year Circus Scandinavia wrote that the young star juggler Alan Sulc would be a part of the performance. He was last year in Norway and worked there for Circus Merano..

 

Amando Renz with Indian elephants wasn’t a secret either and Sergej Prostetson – Mr Dalmatine was known. Mr Dalmatine was in Circus Maximum for the 2002 season and in Arnardo in the 2003. A very charming act, with lots of humour. I’m not sure why the act is called mr. Dalmatine because most of the performing dogs was puddles when I saw the act last time in 2002 but any way the act is very good.

 

Duo Minasov a clothes changing act Francessco the reprise clown is reengaged and last seen in Benneweis in 19995. Francessco has been in USA for a period performing in Circus Big Apple, where the former circus princess in Circus Schumann Katja Schumann works.

 

Evegeni Shmarlovskiy has been in Benneweis before. In 1997 Evegeni was very successful in his different animal illusionist act. Everybody can remember his trick with the coat suddenly became alive.

 

The evening’s thrill is Los quiros with a high wire act. Maxim Papazov handstand in a very high class.. Victor Minasov in a special balloon act.

 

Premiere in Hillerod – North of Copenhagen April 7th. and Benneweis stays here until April 11th.
