RIGOLO SWISS NOUVEAU CIRQUE
Breathtaking & fragile creations for 35 years
Moving, with much clamour, from the street theatre “Circus Rigolo” to stage and ritual performances in their willow palace to finally offering Nouveau Cirque presentations on big stages, Lena Roth and Maedir Rigolo have brought Rigolo a long way since 1978.
Rigolo productions are a living experiment pursuing a holistic expression of dance, theatre, music and art, of props and installations, and outward statements and their inner depth. Its audiences immerse themselves in an unfamiliar world that observes only its own laws. Colours and scents, food and sounds stimulate all senses and evoke the atmosphere for evening-long rituals. Visitors experience not just a stage show, but rediscover and revive their dormant archetypes.
In its fourth decade, the SANDDORN BALANCE is at the centre of all of Maedir Rigolo’s masterpieces, and he shares this knowledge with a select groups of artists and performers. This is why the act can celebrate success on all continents. In the hands of André Heller, the show can go on tour with the Cirque du Soleil, be played on broadway and can win numerous awards. However, its development is not complete; new productions, such as LA DANSE EN ROSE with Marula Eugster, or FEUERERWISCH with Lara Eugster, are constantly appearing and going on tour.
In 2011 the first preparations for the WINGS IN MY HEART tour began. After a successful premiere in Winterthur, and an international tour in Edinburgh, WINGS is coming back to Switzerland!
