The Clown’s life is coming to an end. He is about to enter the unknown, but before “final curtain call” he needs to leave his collar behind, taking the last steps only with the nakedness of his very soul. What lies behind the clown’s perpetually smiling, painted mask? In this production, the disguise is removed both literally and figuratively, as the performers invite the audience on an unusual inner journey into imaginary realms, where the layers covering and protecting reality disappears.

Our fellow travelers and guides in this spectacular production, accompanied and expanded with live music and dancers, are the acrobat artistes of Recirquel contemporary circus company. The show is crossing the borders of circus arts, dance, theatre and music. The company invited 5 dancers and 4 trampoline artists to take part in the year-long creation of The Naked Clown. The music compositions of the show were recorded with a symphonic orchestra, bringing the 19th – 20th century European music to life with a flair of circus.
