Curtain Call

Circus UnArtiq (DE)

A major event

A show combining contemporary circus and movement arts

Circus Unartiq is a show where lovers of René Magritte meet the monumental aesthetics of Christo. Their oversized curtain transforms the surroundings into an open-air theater…

A wide variety of circus techniques, such as acrobatics on the Swinging Trapeze and Chinese Pole, provide the vocabulary for a contemporary metaphorical language and always provide moments of wonder and forgetting of all worries.

Live music mixed with modern electronic sounds: a saxophone plays the soundtrack for a vertical dance on a rope ladder at a dizzying height.

The artists manipulate the versatile setting in elegant choreographies, creating constant changing perspectives and surprising situations. Experience great entertainment for a large audience of any age! René Magritte’s “the lovers” meet Christo’s monumental Aesthetic

The company

Trained at the École Supérieure des Arts du Cirque (ESAC) in Brussels, Andreas Bartl produces numerous solo and duo circus projects and is also an accomplished teacher. Lisa Rinne has won several international awards for her act ‘Fallen’. Driven by their passion for constant reinvention and the search for theatricality, these two highly acclaimed artists offer a varied repertoire of contemporary circus, aerial acrobatics and ground acrobatics (including their shows ‘Casulino’ and ‘Common Ground’).
