This circus is an enchanted, nostalgic, yet modern place where fantasies and runaway carousel horses roam free.
Silea and her carousel horse take the audience on a wild ride through exciting circus arts, sensations and emotions.
Bottle balance, Acrobatics, Magic, tightwire dancing… The „CIRQUE CAPRICIEUX“ offers all that and much more! Silea is not only the director of her circus but also her entire circus troupe.
Silea leads through the program as an eccentric director and presents her performers: among others the silent star who eats razorblades, the charming french lady who is talking to her cat or the crazy Swede who cannot get enough of her bottles.
International sensations, they are a circus troupe of quirky, awe-inspiring, lovable personas.
Smoothly Silea slips from one character into the next, an impressive artist who convinces as much with her wide range of skills as with charisma and charm.
In one moment she lingers in a sad circus song and then dances lively with hula hoops.
A rollercoaster of emotions, circus art after circus art. The power of dreams slowly wraps itself around the show like threads of a spiderweb.
It is up to the audience to decide if the runaway carousel horse is talking or if it only represents an imaginary picture of the director or if in the end everything is just a creation of the horse’s phantasy. What is real anyway. The dreams? The reality? Whose role is it to make such decisions on our lives?
It appears that what is presented on stage, the show, the colors, the performers, is reality. But what hides behind the lace, in black and white, showing itself as silhouettes, may be more real than imagined. The borders between the worlds get blurry: Show and life transform into the same entity. The „Cirque Capricieux“ becomes the realm of our own fantasy.
A varied program with acts of high artistic level, traversed through it one is immersed in dream sequences including a talking horse and a skull rising up to enthralling final. The lace fabric falls, the shadows disappear and fragile yet dynamic dance on the tightwire bewitches the audience once more, and releases them enchanted from „Cirque Capricieux“, the place that they carry within themselves.
A show of which through high artistic integrity, enthralls philosophically.
