Circus Roncalli returns to Germany this spring with a 2023 show that takes in the cities of Bonn, Aachen, Hamburg, Lubeck, Hannover, Munich and Bremen. Presented in Roncalli's huge tent, this spectacular production features 120 clowns, musicians, acrobats and other performers, who combine traditional circus atmosphere with modern levels of comfort and theatrical technology.
This combination of nostalgia and modernity runs through the whole production and is what sets Circus Roncalli apart.
Art, music and spectacle
The title of the new show is “All for ART for all”, with the themes of art and music integrated into the programme. It promises an eclectic mix. Acrobats dressed as The Beatles will present their exciting displays choreographed to the tunes of the Fab Four, while the art of the Bauhaus and the works of Mondrian, Warhol and Kahlo will be brought into the circus ring through the artistry of skilled performers.
Circus Roncalli does not use live animals in its performances, but has taken the tradition of fearsome circus beasts and turned it into a very modern, new attraction. Using state-of-the-art technology developed in a two-year collaboration between the circus and technical experts, circus animals will come to life as extraordinary holographic projections in the ring.
Ethical concerns have also influenced the catering offer. While visitors can still expect the classic circus fare of traditional German foods like Bratwurst, cotton candy and roasted almonds, there will also be a range of vegan food and no plastic packaging or cutlery.
