Work type: Mime.

Fidelis Fortibus - T1869997452

A comical and poetic CIRCUS performance with warm humour and slight melancholy, Fidelis Fortibus is a highly unusual solo performance created and performed by award winning circus legend Danny Ronaldo, who returns to Freedom Festival following his performance in 2012. Danny appears in the ring alone, surrounded by a circle of buried circus artistes. The powerful illusions he creates brings the dead souls back to life. With the audience complicit in maintaining the illusion of the grand spectacle giving applause and waves of laughter, it still sounds like a reality. He will never leave. Or perhaps he might. But would that be to give up? To be disloyal? Fidelis Fortibus provides recognisable metaphorical images for many of today's human situations, because we never have to look far to recognise old patterns that are kept alive by an unconscious loyalty to the past.Performer Danny Ronaldo.

Amortale - T1536849269

A night at the circus like no other. Belgium's much-loved Circus Ronaldo harks back to the days of travelling fairground theatre, a warm-hearted Felliniesque world of uncomplicated popular entertainment. Amortale is Adam and Eve's love story, or would be if other people didn't keep getting in the way. Performed on the Ronaldo's antique and distinctly wobbly stage, it mixes tragedy and clowning, opera, circus, marionettes, and a touch of arson. Bathe in its old-world charm, skill and humour. Circus Ronaldo has been a regular visitor to London International Mime Festival since giving its first ever performances outside Flanders at LIMF 1998. Since then, it has toured its hand-crafted brand of commedia-circus far and wide. Age guidance: 8+. Running time: 75mins with no interval.
