Wow. Cirkus Cirkör. What can I say but thank you! I was so lucky to see this amazing show yesterday called Wear it like a crown with Circus Cirkör, a Swedish nouveau cirque. To me it was a breathtaking, beautiful and humorous experience. Visually and musically stunning with a story exploring fears and loneliness, and about turning them into possibilities..
A show about wearing your fears and failures with pride.
Wearing it like a crown is inspired by and also named after one of Rebekka Karijord’s songs. I had to buy her cd The Noble Art of Letting Go, and when playing it today I was straight back in that wonderfully strange feeling Cirkus Cirkör gave me yesterday. I hope they come back soon:)
Thinking of it, the show came at the perfect time, as I’ve been working on my illustration (above) for Baluba’s calendar competition with the matching theme If I dared, I would... And I would like to live in the forest, and maybe tame an elk that I could ride on through the path of trees... and if I could I would sing like Rebekka Karijord:)
