Well, they’re probably a tad too masculine to be ‘sisters’. Sissies they are not, and with their laid back attitude they manage to get all their tricks to look like they’re a piece of cake. The three men from Tisvilde, Bretagne and the Canary Isles unite Nordic muscle mass, Southern charm, and boyish arrogance in a human clockwork, where timing, creativity and musicality set the wheels in motion.
The style is quite simple, but is detonated by highly explosive bursts of energy. Here heads are not something you use for thinking, but for juggling. Limbs are not something permanently attached to the body, but merge with the other bodies. And wheel spin is not about horsepower, but about feeling the whizz from the big German wheel rotating across the floor with all men onboard.
This is the Sisters’ first performance, and with their creative reinterpretation of the circus disciplines they have won great acclaim across Europe as representatives of the next circus generation.
