THE ARTIST

Circo Aereo  & Thomas Monckton / Finland

An artist arrives in his studio, ready to prepare a new work of art. He waits for inspiration to strike him. When it eventually does, things don’t proceed quite as the distinguished artist would wish. For him, every day is filled with challenges and chaos is unavoidable.

The Artist follows the success of Circo Aereo’s and Thomas Monckton’s previous collaboration, The Pianist,  a world wide smash hit with critics and audiences alike. It has been performed 300 times in Scandinavia, Canada, New Zealand, France, UK, Netherlands, Australia, Russia, and the USA.  The Pianist was nominated for a Best Performance prize at Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2014.

Like The Pianist, The Artist is co-designed by Sanna Silvennoinen, circus artist, choreographer and director of Circo Aereo, and Thomas Monckton, New Zealand-born, internationally acclaimed circus artist.

Duration: 55 minutes.  All ages.
