Cirkus Cirkör
Directed by Tilde Björfors

“the most gorgeous concoction, a perfect blend of contemporary and traditional circus”
—The Stage (UK)

An arresting tableau of theatrics passes from shadows into light in Wear it like a crown, the latest triumph from Sweden's Cirkus Cirkör (Inside Out, 2009 Next Wave Festival). Consisting of six interlocking stories of solitary dreamers who yearn to connect with the world by way of juggling, knife-throwing, daredevil acrobatics, dance, and mime, Cirkus Cirkör rekindles the narrative possibilities of traditional vaudeville while leaping forward with a new circus aesthetic.

Anchored by the lush folk-inflected chamber pop of Norwegian chanteuse Rebekka Karijord, Wear it like a crown explores a world in which magic and redemption are possible.
