THE ARTIST

An artist arrives in his studio, ready to prepare a new work of art. He waits for inspiration to strike him. When it eventually does, things don’t proceed quite as the distinguished artist would wish. For him, the everyday is filled with challenges until an eventual chaos is unavoidable.
The Artist follows the success of Circo Aereo’s and Thomas Monckton’s previous collaboration, The Pianist, which has proven a smash hit with critics and audiences around the world. Since 2013, it has been performed nearly 300 times in Scandinavia, Canada, New Zealand, France, UK, Netherlands, Australia, Russia, USA… The Pianist was nominated for a Best Performance prize at Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2014.
Like The Pianist, The Artist is co-designed by Sanna Silvennoinen, circus artist, choreographer and director of Circo Aereo, and Thomas Monckton, New Zealand-born, internationally acclaimed circus artist.
