I really enjoyed taking these photos. For me, these are some photos that I am satisfied with. A big thanks to Zuzi Ki and Caroline Binon for inspiration. I think of magic when I think of the circus. As a child you are transported to an amazing world. I heard about the Swedish circus Cirkus Cirkor, but when Zuzi Ki took me to see their performance of Wear It Like A Crown last summer it took me to new places. They are circus and beyond, something different, art surrealism and daring performances that are all about risk and opportunities (the theme). A visiting friend Caroline Binon was so inspired, she went back the next day and volunteered to have Jesper strap her on a spinning wheel and throw knives at her. When you see these performers with what they actually do, you can not help but to be moved and shocked that they can actually do what they do. Training and talent have something to do with it, but pure dedication and living life on the edge has something to do with it too. This circus performance travels all over the world and I highly recommend it. I will introduce the people and the photos will speak for itself. Above is the amazing David Eriksson marvel of the century. Juggler, acrobat and talent extraordinaire... what he does with simple ping pong balls is incredible, especially when it involves the incredible Fofo (Fouzia Rakez) below. She is simply magic with David performing as a couple, but she can twist, turn and go in many directions! Wild, weird and wonderful!
The mistress of mayhem Anna Lagerkvist below! An extremist acrobat that does things with a Chinese pole that is certainly challenging and with a vertical dance as well.
Jesper Nikolajeff, nerves of steel. I guess you must have nerves of steel when you throw knives at a woman on a spinning wheel or when you juggle activated chainsaws.
Louise Bjurholm, miraculous and supernatural contortionist acrobat who takes you to different realities with her expressive beauty and talent.
And the master of ceremonies and wizard of wonder Henrik Agger takes you and guides you through this amazing show. He explains this world of risks and opportunities. Enjoy the following photos. This is just a taste of these talented people and what they do. Enjoy!
