Tumble Circus: Damn the Circus

Tumble Circus

Damn The Circus. Damn everything but the circus. In her crown of sequences and sawdust, youth will perish and talent will bleed. She is a cruel and a demanding mistress and yet we love her so.

Tumble Circus welcome you to Damn the Circus, a show about circus, poetry and annoying reality. This is no ordinary circus show; it is an absurd trip into the world of three very special carnies. It's circus from the dark side of feel-good. Disobedient clowns, suffering acrobats and confused jugglers clash in a colorful kaleidoscope of mayhem, with their message 'Death to everything that is not circus'.
