The contemporary circus series that began this year at the Palace of Arts continues this autumn. Bringing together a young team of freshly graduated students from the Imre Baross Hungarian Circus Institute, Recirquel has a good chance of emerging as the first contemporary circus troupe in Hungary. Under the title of Night Circus, the troupe presents excerpts from the show seen at the Sziget Festival.
Director Bence Vági is a graduate in choreography and directing from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. The musical accompaniment draws on a wide variety of styles. It is composed – and will be partly performed live – by Péter Sárik, already a very familiar name on the international jazz scene.
