Cikada Circus



Indoor/Outdoor – 30 minutes – Non verbal – All ages

‘Cikada’ is Cikada Circus’ first creation, inspired intially from Swedish poet Harry Martinsson’s poem ‘Cikada’ published in 1953.

Cikada is a modern and intimate circus experience, an acrobatic and poetic reflection of the balance act between the physical and abstract.

A glimpse into an absurd microworld and a rendition of everyday life, mixed with absurd insect habits and scurrying movements. Cikada is easily adaptable, easily accessible and suitable for all ages, performed both indoors and outdoors and always proffessionally executed.

The show is easily adaptable for site specific locations and has been performed at Street theatre festivals, Indoor venues, an 18th-century museum, Music festivals, a church, on grass, on concrete, smooth floor dance studios and on Circus big top stages.

Music by Swedish artist 1900 (Christian Gabel) and preshow soundtrack by Irish soundscape artist Craig Cox.

Artistic collaboration with Alain Servant.

Awarded ‘Most Innovative show’ Limerick Fringe 2019 and nominated for Judges’ Choice: Best Duo at Dublin Fringe 2018.

The development of the show was supported by Dublin Circus Project and Dance Ireland
