Hello 2020!

2019 ended with a big December tour: 60 solds out shows in France and Germany with all together 120 000 spectatators in the audience. As icing on the cake a big combined show and concert with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester’s 100 musicians was performed on New year’s eve. Plans for 2020 are now staring to form and we are ready for new adventures!

Both the smaller show UNPLUGGED (that fits in almost anywhere wink wink) and the bigger performance GLITCH are in the starting blocks and the calendar is still semi open with good room for more bookings. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want us to come your way!

We wish you all a great new year!

Warm regards, Johan and Co

 

Silver in France!

Johan just got home from one of the world’s biggest Circus festivals with yet another Silver trophy in his bags. 3 000 people in the audience and standing ovations every show for this crazy chicken!

…a good reason to dust off the other door stops and take a “family photo”. Guess what is a prize, and what is just some old flea market find. First with the right answer wins a grater…. we mean your own trophy!

(Among other) in the picture:
Bronze in Chimelong Zhuhai, kina
Silver from Budapest, Ungern
A golden uncle from Moscow. Or should that be gold-like?
Silver in Grenoble
1 piece of golden boy

Worth a big celebration of course, but that will have to happen next year – the next tour starts now. Stay tuned!

GLITCH on new tour 2020

We just received a bunch of nice photos from when we played GLITCH in Holland earlier this year. What a sweet reminder of a fantastic tour! Tickets sold out more than one month before we even arrived. Over 2000 tickets, in only 4 days. Standing ovations every night! An incredible experience after all of the challenges we had on the road this to get there. The feeling of GLITCH was stronger now, somehow as if the performance had grown on it’s own since we played it last. The story, the rythm, Everything. Such a nice ride, felt almost like watching it go by itself!

We got a couple of interesting offers to tour again. (Among others; a 25 theatre long tour door to door… Wow!) Like always we were asked if we can rig the show in only one day and perform it the same night. After some discussions around the drawing board we decided to say yes. If that is what it takes to let this beast fly for real, we’ll make it happen. We finally have an idea about how to make it possible – comical it took us 4 years to figure out..! So it’s back to the lab again during 2019, then a new tour forming for 2020. Holland, Belgium…what more? Bring it on!
 
Thank you som much Per Moneeo, Marcus Björn and Anthony Cooks for your amazing work on tour! …And thank you Stephen Rappaport for having put your energy and mastermind into the project over all of these years. Without you it would simply not exist in the way it does!

Thank you also Mark Yeoman and the great crew at Noorderzon performing arts festival for letting us unleash our monster in your beautiful tent!
