 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Completely fabulous, beautiful and gloomy”

Den 4 Væg 2017

“It is a beautiful, original storytelling-machinery when puppets, music, and film play together in a fable over life and death…”

Politiken – Denmark 2017

An apocalyptic circus comedy

The evening’s performance has started, Circus Funestus entertains a pleased audience with subtle and delicate numbers.

But this particular evening, the story’s microscopic hero, Mr Flea, declares his love to the adorable elephant in the circus!

This hopeless love declaration makes the intrigues roll – The evil villain, Mr. Whip, becomes mad of jealousy and the otherwise entertaining show is facing a collapse … Now a fast-paced and icy hunt starts, to save the love and the circus from a downfall.

Welcome to a high-speed circus show where puppets, movies, music and transformative effects create a comical and magical universe.

The characters

Mr. Mick

Sprechstallmeister – who always has a sneaky comment by the plug. A charletan who manages to wriggle through all the problems.

Mr.  Flea

The circus’s microscopic Hero. Despite his small size hi surpasses everybody in both strength, courage and love.

Miss Eleonor

With tenderness and elegance she plays enchanting tones. She is gracious and good, which quickly becomes very dangerous.

Super 16

She is recording live during the show. By nature, she is curious and therefore gets her lens in something that should not have been seen by anyone.

The Whip

A tyrannical and unpredictable whip. He is an extremely temperamental man. Basically, an insane villain!


The three crunchy brothers have always had great success, but lately they are failing to keep the whole family sober! Fortunately, the Popcorn Junior – is newly poppet and has plenty of salt in the blood!

The Jokers

Masters of illusions.
On a trip they’ve got their hands on a very special Tibetan door – from where a cold wind drags.
