Recirquel Company Budapest: Night Circus
We would like, even during this extraordinary situation, for the Müpa Budapest audience to still be able to encounter the world's most outstanding and thrilling artists each evening - this time in their own homes. It is precisely for this reason that we have decided to unlock our media library for everyone over the weeks to come and - each night at the familiar times - open Müpa Budapest's virtual concert hall and auditoriums by providing access to a single unforgettable performance from past years.
Set among the ten-meter-high, slowly crumbling firewalls of Budapest, the troupe's artists embark on a shared journey around the hidden depths of their own personalities, while seeking to fulfill their unattainable desire to fly. In accordance with the philosophy of the genre, the creators do not tell a linear story. Eternal symbols of pre-historic times and representations of well known fairy tale and mythical situations help the audience feel at ease in a world that is trying to engage its emotions rather than its reason.
The title of the show refers to the rebirth of classical circus through the elements of nuovo cirque, a journey from night to day. Accompanied by live piano music, this first Recirquel creation has enchanted audiences across the world and toured in France two times, attracting outstanding critical reviews.
This recording was made at a concert held at Müpa Budapest on 25 May 2018.
