27 August 2011 at 10 pm: The Night of the Ancient Bonfires, between Theatre Bridge and Auransilta Bridge, River Aura
The meeting of the Elements at River Aura tonight
The Elements will feature daring drops, swirling movement and athletic skills to go along with amazing coordination and dexterity, and will combine music, aerial acrobatics, fire art and a light show. On and on top of the River Aura. Unlike anything seen before in Turku.
Circus acrobats that fly into the dark night, wildly whirling torches and music will create a unique experience. The Versus Circus group from the Helsinki Circus Professionals Association will present Finnish contemporary theatre in its full glory.
Among others, the performance will feature Antti Suniala, one of the most prestigious fire artists in the world. The idea behind the performance comes from circus artists Mia Lindholm, Mia Silvennoinen and Kaisa Pesonen.
