• The Circus Village

    Ilona Jäntti

    The Circus Village has no one home, though you will find it often in Oslo and Sandvika, and sometimes abroad in other Scandinavian parts. The Village itself is a cluster of a half dozen or so tents, the largest middle-sized, the smallest so tiny that the wheel of the circular stage is less in diameter than a reasonably tall person, its three ranks of wooden seating able to take around 80 audience if they're children and crammed tightly inside.

    The Village is run by Circus Xanti, who produce their own shows, run professional and pedagogical projects, and programme the Village both as a residency centre and a travelling festival during the summer months.
