Inside out is a circus show cherishing the circus arts and it’s technical skills, magic, love, warmth and way to look upon life. A performance nourished by a circus heart, groovy live music and Cirkus Cirkör’s characteristic energy and humour.
In Inside out we get to know three persons who each are stuck in their own definition of security and success.
One who is terrified of failure, one locked in the laws of logic and a third fighting to be hard as a rock. Their worlds are turned up side down when meeting a circus company of ugly, monstrous, odd but also magical, funny, warm and elegant characters and a tremendous journey starts.
A fringe second part in a triology about the human body in which we continue to explore the possibilities and impossibilities of the human body and soul. The first part, 99 % unknown that opened in 2004, toured around the world and took the audience on a joyride through cells and neurons inside the body. In Inside out we step out of the body. We let the circus artists physical abilities balance on knife edges and challenging the limits of gravity inspire us to look at our bodies and to meet the world in another way.
“…one true heart-pounding moment is when a woman climbs a pole… drops, plummeting almost to her death at an incomprehensible speed. No matter how many times you’ve seen that performed, your jaw still drops”
".. lovely to look at, combining the romance of the spit-and-sawdust circus with a touch of the freak show, and something more contemporary."
“…a magical breathtaking performance…a powerful inter-disciplinary work of art…”
