"The feminine septuor choir throbs as one heart, jubilant, incandescent, airborne whilst defying the laws of gravity, perspiring profusely with the joy of acting together." Christiane Dampné – Stradda – juillet 2014

The seven artists that make up Mad in Finland have in common the fact that they are circus women, are Finnish and have left their country to live from their passion for the circus. With lots of humour, love and energy, the seven women of Mad in Finland reveal their country, how they perceive or dream about it. An imaginary and reinvented Finland where Finnish depression has something magical about it, where the harshness of climate engenders strong natures. The show is also about circus because that is what the artists are fully immersed in, having chosen to live on the road, perform in Big Tops and showing to the best of their abilities very skilled techniques.
