Follow the artists of Circo Aereo on a journey through visual dream worlds.

Visionary circus company Circo Aereo and the Chamäleon team came together during the pandemic in 2020 to create in_between, a brand new coproduction. An exploration of the drift between waking life and dreaming, in_between brings the unique style of the Finnish circus company to the Chamäleon stage for the first time. We couldn’t be more delighted to celebrate this very special premiere in our theatre.

A collection of other worldly imagery, rich music and acrobatics that seem to go beyond what is humanly possible in_between transports us into a compelling, dreamlike landscape. Different realities are layered over one another creating a gossamer fabric that disintegrates and reforms from moment to moment exploring isolation, fragility, and most of all our yearning for human connection.

Change in our booking regulations:
With the start of the season of in_between, we are back to full seating capacity! This means we are going back to our old booking regulations and are placing more than one party per table once more.

About the Company

“When someone asks me about the style of my work, I always answer that it’s somehow in-between contemporary and traditional; in-between entertaining and strange.” – Maksim Komaro

Komaro has been active in the development of the Finnish contemporary circus scene as a founding member and long time president for the Centre for New Circus Cirko and the Finnish Circus Information Centre and as a member of the Artistic Committee of the Contemporary Circus Festival Cirko in Helsinki. In 2004 and 2009 he was awarded with a five-year artist grant from the Finnish Government.
