Sweden: Contemporary Circus - Wear It Like a Crown


Contemporary Circus - Wear It Like a Crown

Circus Cirkör: Wear it like a crown

Wear it like a crown is the final part in Swedish Cirkus Cirkör’s trilogy about the body. The first part, 99% unknown, took the audience on a journey inside the body among cells and neurons. Inside out follows the heart, and Wear it like a crown seeks order in the collisions between the left and right cerebral hemispheres.

On a revolving stage, the circus performers move through a world of illusions, shadow play, knife throwing, acrobatics, juggling and drama. Six odd characters, feeling like they are the loneliest on earth, wrestle with their own dilemmas. The show has been created in an attempt to understand the chaotic order of the right cerebral hemisphere. The music is composed by Sweden-based musician and composer Rebekka Karijord and the title of the performance is from a song on her album 'The noble art of letting go'...

Swedish Cirkus Cirkör is a contemporary circus company that has toured the world for more than 20 years, seen by more than 2 million people around the world. 400 000 children and youth have trained, created and been taught contemporary circus. Last year they performed at the Kennedy Center here in Washington, DC. One of their most popular performances, Wear it like a crown, is now available on Vimeo by clicking the button below. Enjoy!
