PISTE KOLLEKTIIVI

Dec 2nd and 3rd 19h00 and 5th 16h30

Incredible Michael Might and his Amazing Magic Show  

combines circus, great illusions, acrobatics and live music. Artists coming from Arctic Circle, Rovaniemi City, entertain us with several historical magic stunts from levitation to restoration and quick changes. All done with good humour, amazing sharpness and diligent. The company is well known for their skill to entertain.

 

Audience enjoyment and their well being are in the forefront of the iron strong performers - very enthusiastic magician Michael Might, his charming assistant Sarah Sharp and musician Kevin Venom, whose brilliant presence is like a glue holding the show together. 

 

This performance doesn't require skill in languages, non-verbal show suits to everybody and time goes fast with the amazing performers even with a bad company. 

Direction: Jenni Kallo

Performers: Mika Formunen, Annu Nietula, Tatu Kantomaa

Visual: Tiia Aspegren

10- THE LETTER-Collage.jpg

THE LETTER

Paolo Nani 

Dec 5th and 6th 15h00

The Letter is one of the most touring Danish performances in international venues. The Letter was produced in 1992 together with Nullo Facchini, director of Cantabile 2, and has toured in most European countries and ran for more than 1000 performances.

Never a word is spoken and the result is ludicrous in a ‘crescendo’ of games and surprises.

The quality of the performance is based on its extreme simplicity: No scenography, no special light, no special effect, no special costume but an actor’s tour de force, precision, timing and fantasy.

The performance is packed with details, gags from the beginning until the end and it gives no single minute of break to audience’s laughing muscles.

 

Concept: Paolo Nani, Nullo Facchini

Direction: Nullo Facchini

Duration: 60 minutes

Age recommendation: + 7 yrs.
