Walking the tightrope between circus, dance and gender

‘All Genius All Idiot’ is an exhilarating, surprising, absurd, animalistic and musical trip to the depths of humanity. A performance that erases the borders between circus, dance and gender. A show about identity, human behaviour, geniuses and idiots. In short, the perfect first act for SMELLS LIKE CIRCUS!

Svalbard Company is a group of four acrobats from Spain, England, Sweden and Germany. Their production contains dance and live music in addition to familiar circus techniques, such as handstands, partner acrobatics and the use of ropes and the Chinese pole. “A hedonistic celebration of the Bacchanalian spirit”, writes leading theatre magazine TotalTheatre.

This performance contains partial nudity and is recommended for people over 15 years. (The company members believe it can be watched and enjoyed by younger people.) During the performance a small pyrotechnic is operated and it contains dry ice and water on stage. It contains inappropriate English words in the music lyrics.
