In Balance Circus Company
About the company
We have just relocated to Sweden after 10 years in the UK, moving our company, Apocalyptic Circus, with us and giving it a new name: In Balance Circus Company. In Balance is a family run company which builds on work we’ve been doing since 2012. HOUSE is our second big production, created with Sunniva Byvard. Over the last few years we have focused on creating and being part of shows for family audiences. In our work we take inspiration from our lives and the people around us. We value circus greatly, and we always aim to create productions with high level skills at their core. Linn studied on Stockholm University of the Arts’ Circus Program before meeting Tom (who trained as a theater technician in Bristol) soon after her graduation in 2010. Their passion for detail and shared idea of what’s important in a production made them not only start a family but also Apocalyptic Circus – now In Balance.
About the performance
Come close and peer through the enticing doors and windows. Meet two strange-looking figures, each with their own very different way of being. They provoke and play with one another, trying to find a way to exist together in this quirky-looking house of theirs. MY HOUSE is a circus-theater experience for little people and their families. Through high level circus techniques and comedy, two artists playfully show us how it is possible to understand one another, even though we may all be very different. After the show, everyone is welcome to explore and play in the structure. MY HOUSE premiered in May 2019 and played over 60 shows that summer. It was always well received. An even larger tour was booked for 2020 in Scandinavia and the UK.
