TRACTOR CIRCUS PROJECT
Tractor Circus wish to bring contemporary circus to the villages of Scandinavia. Farmers and villagers let them use their tractors and farm yards, receiving a performance and new experience in return. With two vans and two tractors they turn the village up side down for a weekend. Tractor Circus want to create a meeting place for all cultures, social backgrounds and experiences – to encourage people to play and dream together with them. They also invite for workshops connected with the performance.
Duration: 45 min
Language: No text. Songs with lyrics in Swedish and English.
Recommended audience: Family show for all ages
The performance is created for farm barns and outdoor venues.
The artistic company
Tractor Circus consists of four Nordic artists: three circus artists and one musician. They wish to meet people where they live in their everyday life, bringing their work to people´s homes instead of invitating them to the theatre. They started in 2017 with the creation of a 30 minute piece in collaboration with Odin Teatret. It was performed at Festugen in Holstebro, followed by a tour in Denmark. In May 2018 the performance was developed into 45 minute piece that has been performed in Denmark and Norway.
Performers: Linn Holm, Mari Dahl Stoknes, Tamar Ohana Goksøyr, Elona Planman
With the support of Odin Teatret and Troels Rosenkrantz Andersen.
