The performance

It is not easy being in a circus. Usually, the ones doing the same old tricks, the same old way, are the ones who can join the crew and become artists. Those who think differently must leave and become something else. But not anymore!

Skåne’s most dangerous circus has hired the most unusual talents and created a show where anything can happen. Isn’t it much more exciting to see the lion eating its tamer, the knife thrower piercing the assistant and the acrobat falling to the floor? In a real circus, it’s not about being the best, but about being the bravest.
