[heresy] is the latest production of Finnish circus company Sirkus Supiainen and it is directed by  Juggler / Master of Arts (theatre and drama) Samuli Männistö.
By it’s name the performance [heresy] is a research on any belief or theory that is strongly at variance with established beliefs, customs, etc. It is a study on control, substance and sanctity, inspired by art, religions and beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe.

Sirkus Supiainen’s performance [heresy] mixes physical theater with juggling, live music and questioning laughter. It is a dialogue between three jugglers and a folk musician concerning objects, riddles, puzzles and other important things. [heresy] is true poetry of contemporary circus, a visual poem of all that exists.

[heresy] is a 75 min. performance without intermission and it is available for bookings.
