Length: 2 hours with intermission – Idea and direction: Johan Wellton and the artists – Played on tour in Sweden 2008.
Varieté Royale is a modern Variety show in an exclusive package, and offers a grand spectacular full of uncompromised sensations. Johan Wellton headlines his production with a personal mix of comedy and super juggling. The performers are not an ensemble – this is Sweden’s most charismatic individualists that all presents their very own impossible feats. It is grandiose, wild and yet intimate.
“The premiere audience at he irresistebly beautiful Gävle teater was at times close to vaporized from laughter and dazzlement”
“The fear that a Variety in Johan Wellton’s direction would only mean new circus and a few jokes is immediately out of question.”
“Johan Wellton, John Houdi, Jan Unestam, Marilen Ribot och Henna Kaikula all has top quality. And when Wellton juggles 7 balls standing, sitting, while blindfolded and finally juggles into his suitcase. Well yes, that’s when the artistry reaches absolute world class and the highest of qualities”
Varieté Royale was awarded “The best show of the year” 2008 by nummer.se. The show played for sold out houses at Gävle teater, Slagthuset Malmö and vasateatern Nov-Dec 2008.
