Circo Aereo is an international contemporary circus group from Finland. Circo Aereo is based in Finland and France but the troupe frequently performs around the world and they are making a stop in the Chicagoland area this Friday, March 4th! At Dominican University in River Forest, just minutes from downtown!

Currently one of the most active Finnish groups in terms of performing abroad, Circo Aereo is among the flagships of Finnish cultural exports.

In the past few years, Circo Aereo’s productions have been a major factor contributing to the rise of Finnish contemporary circus internationally. Active since 1996, the group has visited several distinguished festivals and theatres in around 30 countries.

Circo Aereo’s barrier-breaking and open approach to the various forms of the performing arts mesmerises and astonishes audiences throughout the world.

Circo Aereo’s extensive production includes an array of very different works. A joint creation of Circo Aereo’s founders Maksim Komaro and Jani Nuutinen, Super 8 (2004) combines variations of traditional magic tricks, Super 8 films and visual comedy.

Produced with a human touch and on a human scale, its performances aim to get close to the audience and their emotions. Indeed, communication with the audience and the creation of unique experiences are fundamental values for the group. Circo Aereo’s understated but highly charged style embodies a search for the quintessential and a careful selection of the ways of expression.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see a show of this calibre inChicago!
