Super 8
"This is absolutely the best we have seen so far in the short history of Finnish contemporary circus."
Helsingin Sanomat 31.8.2004

Classical miracles of magic, Super 8 films, electronic music and visual comedy. Super 8 is the journey of two charismatic circus artists and a composer of electronic music to the past and the present.

Magic is like memories: what has happened blends with what might have happened. Disappearance, the past and the present meet in Super 8. "We try to transform circus into something new - and hopefully that something is new circus. We bring you a magic show from a new, Circo Aereo-type perspective."
