NouNous Festival 1.-5.12.2021

Fourth edition of NouNous Festival @Cirko

NouNous Festival is here again! Almost like a tradition in the first week of December friends of

comedy are treated to Kallo Collective's unique this year 5-day festival. The popular festival brings

the best of Finnish and international physical comedy to Helsinki. The themes of performances take

us from the world of femininity through great illusions to the peak of comedy classic. All the shows are

Helsinki premieres.

The festival starts with an enchanting Only Bones version of Marina Cherry from Montana. Just one

light no text no narrative and as few props and set as possible. Marina balances between the

extreme limitations of her creativity theatrical and physical expression on a journey worth joining!

Former rock star Hamish by Mika Formunen wants him and his new art form to be taken seriously.

Pain and pleasure characteristic to a fakir are present at the same time as Hamish balances

between his special skills. But how is it possible to play accordion that hangs from your ears? Come

and experience Hamish!

Paolo Nani’s classic and international hit The Letter has toured since 1992 all over the world. This

non-verbal physical theatre show has reached cult fame with a very simple form writing a letter.

Performance packed with details and skillful precision and timing has been called the encyclopedia of

comedy. Show has toured in 40 countries and performed over 1500 times. A must see!

Awarded Piste Kollektiivi from Rovaniemi brings Lappish addition with them. Incredible Michael

Might and his Amazing Magic Show takes us to a very different journey the world of magic!

Michael Might is able to do magic out of anything and his team is ready to do their best in his favour.

Suitable for the whole family.

Demo nights have also been part of our programming in the past years. This year we have two

demos; Emma Castrén’s Gynecologist is an adventure into the inner world of the body where a

gynecologist clown dives into her patient in search of a solution to the painful ailments of this intimate


Viivi Roiha’s V++ plays with stereotypes of aerial acrobatics. Images and moods change abruptly

when Roiha steps out of the cliches characteristic of the air acrobatics and takes them in many ways

too far.

For the first time we present circus-themed movies in the festival. Mad in Finland a documentary-fiction by Elice Abonce Muhonen follows the lives of awarded circus artists by the same name.

Frédéric Barrett former circus artist’s first feature Bonnet D’Homme give off the refreshing scent of

utopia and reinvented burlesque.
