Winter Circus Time - Tanssiteatteri Hurjaruuth
Winter Circus Time is already the 13th edition in a series of productions all bearing the name Winter Circus, complemented with a different epithet each year (Snow, Star, Sirius etc.). These yearly block buster productions which combine contemporary circus, dance and live music, have become the signature work of Dance Theatre Hurjaruuth. This year the familiar acrobatic elves are deeply involved in the mystery of time. The show features eight international virtuosos of contemporary circus and the Bordurka Quartet, skilled in imaginary folk music.
