Love is all there is: The latest production by Recirquel Budapest, Hungary's leading contemporary circus company, brings forth the only primeval energy that spans space and time to connect us all. Directed by artistic director Bence Vági, Solus Amor employs "cirque danse”, a genre created with and by the company over the course of several years, in a monumental production drawing its power from our contemporary yearning for nature and wonderment.

A few years ago, a new genre was born here in Budapest: foreign critics were the first to dub this novel art form "cirque danse" as created by Bence Vági and his globetrotting circus company. Contemporary circus fused with traditional and modern dance brings this hybrid genre to the stage: acrobatics inspire amazement and awe, while dance facilitates self-expression, relays the subtler shades of meaning and tells a story. Following the international success of Non Solus and My Land, Solus Amor completes the trilogy by telling the story of the emotion that binds our universe, love. The music for this celebration of love was composed by Edina Szirtes. Behind the extraordinary visuals and unique sound effects lies the creative team of Gábor Terjék, sound designer, Péter Klimó, who designed the awe-inspiring set, and costume designer Emese Kasza. The performance's special 'guest star' is a bear constructed by the world-renowned South African puppeteer Janni Younge. Under Bence Vági's direction, the acrobats and dancers move together to bring this colossal being to life.

The premiere was presented by Müpa Budapest and Recirquel Budapest.
