Dark Circus STEREOPTIK

About the show

A nose-diving trapezist, an animal trainer gobbled up by his lion, and a human cannonball that never returns from outer space: this is one tragic circus. Despite the catastrophes, French puppet company STEREOPTIK elevates the spectacle with a visual feast of imagination. With a brand of visual theatre magic that features live music, exquisite ink drawings, shadow puppetry, sand animation, and revelatory object theatre, their ironic humor meets childlike wonder, and an extraordinary Dark Circus is born.
