Till death do us Party mashed-up millennial circus. Fotograf/Källa: Isak Stockås

The Bachelor Programme in Circus at DOCH School of Dance and Circus/Stockholm University of the Arts presents A nightmare circus show March 27–30, 2019.

“Keep it sweet, keep it light, keep it neat, keep it tight.
Close your eyes and party all night.

A nightmare circus show: part science fiction horror, part haunted house, part teen slasher.

Keep it fast, keep it tricksy, make it last, make it slinky bright
Forget the past and dance all night.

A zombie apocalyptic prom dance, an end of times anxiety dream.

Never fail, never fall, don’t ever drop the ball – things will be alright
Ignore the storm and party all night.

Don’t worry, all you wanna do is fly,
So don’t say sorry and party, party till you die.”

The 2nd year students in the bachelor programme in circus at DOCH/Uniarts invite you to experience a nightmare circus show, a mashed-up millennial mix tape of 15 international circus artists in the making directed by John-Paul Zaccarini, Associate Professor in Circus, PhD and with collaboration from the Masters Programme in Contemporary Circus Practice.
