The performance is a poetic and visually magnificent experience of love and respect, filled with air and water acrobatics and astounding formations.
AQUANAUTS with Circus Cirkör is a full experience that will tickle all senses as you are welcomed into the Aquanauts universe. Where the silver-shimmering unsexual and wordless creatures spread their message of love and fellowship/solidarity.
More than 100,000 spectators
AQUANAUTS with Cirkus Cirkör have been presented as a work-in-progress at the Forsgrenska Bath-house in Stockholm and outside during the H20 festival in the city of Jönköping. The show played in its biggest site-specific form so far, during the Stockholm Culture Festival 2018, where it performed five nights in a row for more than 100,000 people.
Fire, air, water and love
AQUANAUTS with Cirkus Cirkör was born in a unique collaboration between synchronized swimmers and contemporary circus artists. It is therefore created by performance parts of various elements, such as water, air and fire. The ensemble consists of more than 50 artists, including professional circus artists; elite synchronized swimmers as well as amateur swimmers. Together they convey the important message: Everyone can be oneself, we belong together and love conquer/overcomes everything.
