The festival opens with the popular Cirque Aïtal, who are set to melt one heart after another with their dusty circus charm, French amour, volatile Finnish temperament, rock’n’roll road show and overtly skilled acrobatics.

For better or for worse, a performance about relationships, it’s so cliché. That is until you meet Victor and Kati. The big powerful Frenchman, who’s just as soft as his curls, and the bustling Finn, who’s as petite as she’s fiery. And their red car, which has a life of its own.

They have brought their own tent. It will be set up in a place with beautiful views across the water. Here they perform their innovative performance about being a circus couple always on the move. Clichés are filtered through a volatile acrobatic energy and crazy ingenuity and turn into funny, unpredictable and moving circus poetry for the whole family.
