The GOP Hannover celebrates its 30th birthday this year. The anniversary year got off to a brilliant start with the “Circus” show.
The opening scene already gives a glimpse into what crazy world the audience has gotten into. The stage is full of sequin hats, detailed costumes, whirling hoops and acrobatic interludes. Ringmaster Eduardissimo goes to great lengths to keep his artists under control.
Despite the driving music, equilibristic artist Ksenia Shytova remains completely calm as she balances on a pole in a one-handed handstand and a split. Anna Pieies clamps her left foot from the front behind her right ear and smiles as relaxed as if she had just made herself comfortable on the couch. Most people are likely to reach their limits here for purely anatomical reasons.
Strange moments with Eduardissimo
Kateryna Kurichenko is the diva in the “Circus”. She has the audience and Eduardissimo perfectly under control. The silver hoops and red hair fly around her body as she cheers the audience on to give her the applause she deserves. Eduardissimo gets involved in a not entirely voluntary dance with his colleague in the tutu. Later he will prove what versatile dance talent he has.
The mood finally reaches its climax with Vitalii Neponiashchyi and Dmytro Naumenko. The duo in leather clothing shows a fast-paced mix of dance and acrobatics. Anastasia Kornieieva delivers an impressively moving performance in the air ring. When the curtain closes after a rousing finale, the audience is quickly a bit breathless, but in the best of spirits.
“Circus” is a poetic homage to the world in the ring
The entire show and all the actors quickly foam over with positive energy and uninhibited joie de vivre. “Circus” is a crazy spectacle that pays a poetic homage to the fantastic world in the ring.
