“Circus lovers can be reassured, of an outstanding level artistically, MAD IN FINLAND contains all the necessary ingredients. But there is more, much more than an acrobatic and musical achievement, there is significance, a high level of perception to define a performance full of humour, love, energy and overflowing satirical spirit.”
Michel Dieuaide – Les Trois Coups – July 2013
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 love and self-mockery, 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.
