Paradise Circus Now

Unpredictable show full of combative power songs and whispered balancing acts

moON productions (NL)

Even mildness requires training and flexibility. How do you manage that when you’ve become hardened along the way? In Paradise Circus Now, seven performers present a fictional story based on the life of a young woman who fled from a war to the Netherlands. From a history of psychological and physical violence, she tries to reinvent herself. With her group of unconventional performers, she travels around with a show that involves songs, music, dance and theatrical acts. With their towering ambitions, the performers are bound to stumble, but the group is nimble. They brush off the dust, grab a new costume, and move on from one city to the next.

Paradise Circus Now is a poetic, sharp, and unpredictable show full of imagination, in an arena of powerful songs and softly whispered balancing acts. Entering that arena again and again is a leap into the unknown, with the audience sometimes serving as a safety net. Director Hendrik Aerts collaborates with a broad artistic team and with seven emerging performers, all curious about the synergy of different art disciplines and a process of co-creation. With a new text by Maxine Palit de Jongh.

The new generation in the spotlights
Saturday 25 May, new musical theater makers reveal their work to an audience at the Kaap. At Theater Walhalla and Conny Janssen Danst, among others, a diverse group of makers will gather for a day full of creativity, talent and energy. Some have only just graduated, others are about to leave school, and a few have left school longer ago. One thing they have in common is a bold take on musical theatre. From a rebellious, feminist reinterpretation of a classic play to a relentless crash test of traditional musical, the variety is wide. All of these creators are ready to shatter the status quo and redefine the world of music theatre.
