STREET CIRCUS AND THEATER ...

 

Originally from a small town on the far East of Kouglistan, Guinski, Bartek and Gandolf decided to leave their native country for “The American Dream”!

 

At each stop of their adventure they deposited their suitcases, Cyr wheel, teeterboard, and good mood to give birth to a new creation of boundless dynamism. As in their country of origin, ridicule does not exist and never will. The three acrobat stooges and their international careers are engaged in delivering outstanding performances, ingenious conjuring tricks, extravagant dance steps, and memorable interventions with the public, to make their trip a fun and zany epic experience.

 

Crazy, sophisticated,  colourful, and with their breakneck pace, these three artists lack neither air nor energy to lead you to a wacky elsewhere. Especially the day an old friend resurfaced...
