All Genius All Idiot

Svalbard Company

All Genius All Idiot

Vivid and outrageous in equal measure All Genius All Idiot revels in the absurdities of life, using extreme circus artistry to highlight human behavior at its most animalistic. Svalbard bends the edges of contemporary circus and blends it with theatre, dance and live music to create a truly original piece that you will remember for its surreal quality as well as its awe-inspiring skills and realness.

All Genius All Idiot features Chinese pole, aerial rope, hand balance and acrobatics, driven by a hauntingly beautiful and at times bizarre original soundtrack, played live by the performers.

We will be all singing all dancing all flying all crying all rocking all genius all idiots!
