Circus Europa, May 2022 show: Incredible feats in Hamburg, Germany!

Incredible feats at Circus Europa, May 2022 show in Hamburg, Germany! But note that I have filmed everything that was on the programme.

Note that the mentioned programme wasn’t exactly what I saw. There may have been a rota around artists and types of performances displayed. Nonetheless, I truly enjoyed it, and so did the families with their children! Circus Europa is suitable for all age groups.

Now, let me share with you the acts I watch. For some acts, I only have made video snippets.

This first snippet video from the act by Ivan Radev, the juggler from Bulgaria:

Juggling is one of the classics of the circus, but this number will captivate you from the very first second. Look forward to flying footballs and juggling with balances of the new kind.

Then, we moved to an aerial act with this full thick red rope act:

Followed by this snippet video of the hand-balancing act by Bryan from Guatemala that you can find under the usernames  @bryanvulcan_fitness on Instagram and @bryanvulcan on Tiktok:

Then came this full silk duet act by Daria and Olga from Russia:

Last, but not least, came this full flying pole act by Bryan from Guatemala, the same person who did the hand-balancing act:

This is a whole new kind of artistry: aerial acrobatics paired with the classic pole.

And the final full act I filmed was the wheel of death act by two Colombians that you can find on Instagram under the username @theflyersvalencia. They are also on Facebook.

These two daring Colombians use an 8-meter-long wheel, on which they jump rope and do somersaults on the outside of the rotating wheel. Thrills are guaranteed here!

There were  also other shows like:

  • a quick dress change act with Duo Free Life from Ukraine, which you can find under the @duofreelife username on Instagram:
  • a clown act with Tony Alexis
  • and domestic animal acts with ponies, horses, dogs, and camels trained by Sandro Frank.

Circus On Ice: The Big Show in Toulouse (November 2019)

Circus On Ice: The Big Show in Toulouse takes place from the end of October until 11th November 2019. The marquee is set up on the parking across the Zénith, a multi-purpose indoor arena, in Toulouse.

Circus On Ice: The Big Show

1. ABOUT CIRCUS ON ICE

This is the very first time Circus on Ice tours in France. It is an event in itself as much on a technical than an artistic level. Indeed, it is a technical feat, which allows the moving 9000 tons of material and more particularly a real natural ice skating rink and its touring showroom across France.

It is also an artistic achievement with the circus stars, coming from the four corners of the world, mix with the ice skating stars.

The show is largely inspired by big American shows. The mix of circus and ice skating enthrals as much as astonishes the public through an original enchanting Live show.

The traditional sawdust circus ring leaves room to the authentic ice skating ring. The ice skating circus ballet, under the artistic direction of Veronika Kushnikova, attires itself in beautiful outrageous and shimmering costumes and brings you along with a whirlwind of dreams and emotions.

The show has around a dozen international artists in various realms working in fields such as balancing acrobatic, aerial straps, aerial loop/rope, acrobalance, ice skating, animal show, hula hoop, magic, juggling, clowning. Note, however, that I haven’t filmed everything.

2. CIRCUS ON ICE PERFORMANCES IN VIDEOS

Let’s start with a piece of ice skating performed by @allison.kymmel_official and her ice skating ballet company under the ‘Speed’ song by French singer-songwriter Zazie (note that the video isn’t upside-down despite the thumbnail showing otherwise):

 

Followed by an acrobalance  trio Empire composed of  @david_vasquez_leon, @duanyrruband @yordan_lombana performing under the ‘It’s Our Fight’ song by Steve Jablonsky:

 

Then followed two aerial shows:
  • Aerial straps with hair suspension performed under the ‘Phantom of the Opera’ song interpreted and played by violinist Lindsey Stirling.

  • Aerial rope/loop performed by @_jifg under the ‘Yalla’ song by French singer-songwriter Calogero.

The last human show I filmed, albeit very short, is the Rolla Bolla Balancing acrobat as follows:

And last but not least, I also filmed snippets of the dogs’ show by Gina Giovannis (private profile on Facebook):
