Press release Winter Circus Memory


Winter Circus Memory
Pannuhalli, Cable Factory, November 3, 2016 – January 8, 2017
Directed by Arja Petterson

The top team at the Winter Circus unravels the mysteries of memory!

Winter Circus Memory is an album of childhood memories, unforgettable events, mnemonics, and amnesia. It is the decimal of pi, grandmother’s engagement ring, and a baby’s first milk tooth. It is contemporary circus, video art, and live music. And one Guinness world record.

You know Dasher, and Dancer, and Prancer, and Vixen, Comet, and Cupid, and Donner and Blitzen… But do you recall which pocket you tucked your keys in? The show is full of references to collective memories – and a stunning display of future circus, one which you don’t have to fear forgetting anytime soon.

Running time approximately 2 hours.
