Death or Circus

Modern life is rubbish

We need advise, guidance and heroes. Kenneth Fall, and Tina Machina, are under-qualified, but overly eager to share their absurd views on how to cure the planet. Can celebrity anarchists and circus devilment save our children? 

Death or Circus is a bad advise, absurd circus satire on modern culture using circus skills (duo trapeze, corde lisse, partner acrobatics, hula hoop, slapstick and clowning) 

Death or Circus is a comedy street theatre show, a show that is not afraid to ask challenging questions, questions about modern culture, and questions like why does Tina’s sister look like a man in drag?

 Street theatre from the dark side of feel good. Dysfunctional family entertainment. Through circus, clown and theatre, we hope to disturb, take over, inspire change and mostly remind people that they are not alone.
