Design Statement

Set among the 10-meter-high slowly crumbling firewalls of Budapest, the troupe's artists are on a shared journey around the hidden aspects of their own personalities while searching to fulfil their unreachable desire of flying. The design creates the deeply known environment of our historical capital, our environment, past and present. In accordance with the philosophy of the genre, the creators do not tell a linear story. Eternal symbols of pre-historic times and representations of well-known fairy tale and mythical situations assist the audience in feeling at ease in a world which is trying to engage its emotions rather than their reason.

The title of the show refers to the rebirth of classical circus with the elements of nuovo cirque, a journey from night to day. Accompanied by live piano music, the first creation of Recirquel has enchanted audiences across the world and toured in France two times, with outstanding critical reviews.
