The beauty of circus lies in unfathomable places.

CLØWNS & QUEENS is dirty circus. Clown eroticism. Humiliation as entertainment. Pre-raphaelite hoola hooping. Horizontal juggling.

An exploration into the cross over between Circus, Dance and Performance Art that pays tribute to the strange beauty of various golden ages of circus whilst deftly subverting its archetypes.
The newest addition to the Gandinis’ repertoire is a departure from their usual mathematical juggling obsessions; this universe is about the juggler’s body and it’s perversity, with echoes of Stanley Kubric and Frederico Fellini.

‘A constantly shifting dance of desire’ Lyn Gardner, THE GUARDIAN

‘…the risk pays off: it is in the intersection between circus, dance and madness that the most exciting living theatre comes alive.’
Edouard Launet, LIBÉRATION
