30 years ago the event company Flic Flac presented its first show "Not just any circus". And even after three decades, the enthusiasm that Flic Flac has generated is still unbroken. Guests at the Frankfurt premiere of the new show "Punxxx" on Thursday evening were able to see this for themselves. In the striking yellow and black circus tent, the audience was offered a mixture of spectacular artistry, extreme thrills and offbeat comedy. And that created a great atmosphere right from the start, where even big rock stars would turn green with envy in places.
At the first performance, where the Mad Flying Bikes lived up to their name, it became clear once more that Flic Flac is simply different in the best sense of the word. Not only the performances themselves, but also their staging give the show its very special character, which is consistently carried through to the end. There is a lot to marvel at - for example, when the Czech Zdenek Polách reinterprets juggling in a refreshingly new way with an apparent lightness, when the Italian Romy Meggiolaro mixes fascinating antipodean games with a rocking attitude, or when the Ukrainian trio Three G presents equilibristics between grace and girl power. A breath of eroticism blows through the tent when Olha Peresada presents sensual body art at the Chinese Pole in "Purple Rain", when it suddenly starts to rain in the arena or when the duo Splash enchant the audience as mermaids in Flic Flac style. </But there are also moments in which the fear sweat is on your forehead as a spectator. For example when Alex Michael balances upside down under the tent roof - and that completely without a net. The number of Alain Alegria is also nerve-racking. Not only does he swing back and forth unsecured in lofty heights, but he also balances on one leg only or makes himself comfortable in a folding chair. You have seen many a person in the audience who looked up with open mouths and wide open eyes. The audience also held its breath at the Globe of Speed: The daredevil motorcyclists of the Helldrivers do their laps in a very confined space. In the end, seven men and one woman share the ball - pure madness! </But in between you may also exhale and laugh heartily from time to time. The Swede David Eriksson always bridges the time between the performances with his very special guerilla comedy and shows a kind of Ping Pong that you have never really seen before. And the duo Naked Lunch present really weird humour of the British-Irish kind shortly before the finale. After this number you will probably always look at commercial frying pans with different eyes. After the diaphragm had been strained, the final was a real thrill: The Holy Warriors, ten artists of the China National Acrobatics Troupe, mixed high-tech and precise jumping techniques to a sensational act that you just have to see. </p>
"Punxxx" offers world-class entertainment. From the pleasant atmosphere in the spacious awning to the fact that you have a good view of what is happening in the ring from every seat in the tent, to the two-hour show that never gets bored for a moment - here everything comes together to form an unforgettable whole. You shouldn't miss this. In Frankfurt "Punxxx" will be a guest at the Festplatz am Ratsweg until 01 March. You can find the individual dates HERE in our calendar of events.
