WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A man and woman are drifting apart. Their relationship is complicated. What remain are memories, images and illusions they cannot control. What is mirage and what is real? Combining cutting edge video technology with 19th century stage-magic techniques, Kalle Nio creates mystery, unease and dark humour in this award-winning show. Original and intriguing, new circus meets the world of visual art to explore estrangement and conflict; its teasing ambiguity reminiscent of 1960s cult movie Blow Up, and other films by Italian maestro Michelangelo Antonioni. The twisted, dreamlike soundscape is the work of composer, Samuli Kosminen, well known for his collaborations with Kronos Quartet. Co-founded by Finnish magician/visual artist, Kalle Nio, WHS productions have toured worldwide and been important factors in the recent rise to prominence of Finnish new circus.
