Circus Chnopf - 'Panik!' tour

Mid Morning Mix // Family// Explore Switzerland// Sport// Entertainment// Art & Culture // July 20, 2017

Circus Chnopf's 'Panik!' tour is underway and continuing around Swiss cities and villages until mid-September.

Dave Sieger, Production Manager, describes the show's style as 'new circus' to WRS. He explains it as a new form of art, including physical theatre, dance and traditional circus.

Circus Chnopf find their performing artists through castings that they run each October and some of their performers have trained at Zirkus Quartier; their own circus school in Zurich.

If you're interested in learning circus skills, they hold classes in acrobatics, tightrope, aerial skills and acro yoga!

Dave explains to us why they love touring in smaller venues in smaller villages, as well as city centres.
