Cirkus Cirkör at BAM in Brooklyn.
Stockholm based cirque nouveau troupe Cirkus Cirkör will be performing at BAM New York's Howard Gilman Opera House between Nov. 12-15. “Like the younger, hipper little sister of Cirque du Soleil..." / Daily Express in a recent review.
The human body unfolds as a surreal rock and roll fantasy in Inside Out, Swedish troupe Cirkus Cirkör's phantasmagoric journey into the outer reaches of inner life. Accompanied onstage by the band Irya's Playground and featuring an outlandish mix of highly skilled acrobatics, musical theater, and spectacle, Inside Out boggles the mind by way of the body. Cirkus Cirkör is the biggest so called contemporary circus in Scandinavia, it was founded in Stockholm in 1995 by Tilde Björfors, who was inspired by the Canadian Cirque de Soleil. Contemporary circus, or cirque nouveau, is a performing art form developed in the later 20th century in which a story or theme is conveyed through traditional circus arts.
