Lion – The Weird and Magical Abracadabra Circus Show!
Actor, master mime Marc Gassot stars in this tribute to circus spiced with brilliant sprinkles of pantomime and shades of splatter movies. It is a wonderfully deranged concoction of tongue-in-cheek comedy, animal taming, magic and clownery directed by Circo Aereo’s Sanna Silvennoinen, a pioneer of Finnish contemporary circus, and featuring Karl Sinkkonen’s one-man orchestra.
Step right up, folks – this show will attract all audiences, even teenagers!
Yle, the Finnish Broadcasting Company will record both performances. Lion will be broadcasted on Boxing Day on Yle Teema television channel. The recording will be also available via Yle Areena online service.
