Show resume

The most recent production of the Hungarian contemporary circus company Recirquel Company Budapest, My Land premiered at Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August. My Land was the best-rated show not only at the Fringe, but also among the productions of the entire 2018 Edinburgh International Festival.
Recirquel’s moving new piece sees the company explore humanity’s roots – the eternal inheritance of humankind and earth under the guidance of Artistic Director Bence Vági. Seven of Ukraine's most talented circus artists present a vision of light and shadow fusing ancient tradition with mind-blowing skills. Pushing the boundaries of the human body, My Land resonates with the most ancient myths of humanity, staging artists as they search for the sound of their own freedom in a timeless space expanded by illusions.
In My Land’s ambitious staging performers rise up from a soil-covered set to tell their personal stories creating mesmerising images evoking tradition, freedom and love. Featuring traditional Tatar, Moldavian, and other music pieces from the Ukraine, and never before seen physical feats. The production merging circus, contemporary dance and ballet with theatre is the evolution of a new genre in performing arts called ‘cirque danse’.
