NIGHT CIRCUS

The unforgettable experience is guaranteed, mystical and modern costumes in spectacular lights, with a musical world influenced by various styles. — ELLE

TOHU welcomes the North American premiere of this largescale production by Recirquel, the very first Hungary-based contemporary circus company. In a beautiful theatrical form, with fascinating out of the ordinary characters in search of an ideal, always higher, further in the sky… Night Circus reinvents the Icarus myth, the man’s timeless desire to fly, in a frame that overcomes conventions. Thus arise eternal symbols inherited from prehistoric times, mystical pages from the history of mankind.

Talented director Bence Vági shares his exceptional gift for uniting disciplines, such as dancing and singing, around a pure creation of today’s circus, driven by melodies and piano notes by jazz musician and composer Sárik Péter.

Fascinating and enchanting, Recirquel will send you to a universe where strong emotions prevail over reason, for an unforgettable moment…
