Cirkus Cirkor: Wear It Like A Crown

I really enjoyed taking these photos. For me, these are some photos that I am satisfied with. A big thanks to Zuzi Ki and Caroline Binon for inspiration. I think of magic when I think of the circus. As a child you are transported to an amazing world. I heard about the Swedish circus Cirkus Cirkor, but when Zuzi Ki took me to see their performance of Wear It Like A Crown last summer it took me to new places. They are a circus and beyond, something different, art surrealism and daring performances that are all about risk and opportunities (the theme).

 

A visiting friend Caroline Binon was so inspired, she went back the next day and volunteered to have Jesper strap her on a spinning wheel and throw knives at her. When you see these performers with what they actually do, you can not help but to be moved and shocked that they can actually do what they do. Training and talent have something to do with it, but pure dedication and living life on the edge has something to do with it too. This circus performance travels all over the world and I highly recommend it. I will introduce the people and the photos will speak for itself.
