Seven talented circus artists will demonstrate their attachment to Ukraine, their country of origin, in an exceptional show combining the art of movement, theatre, classical and contemporary dance, on June 10.

“Open your eyes wide, hold your breath and let your imagination run wild! On a stage covered with earth, between shadow and light, seven Ukrainian acrobats push the limits of the human body and take you on the trail of their personal stories, between love, freedom and tradition. Drawing on the roots of the performers, the musical universe of the production is a subtle alliance of Tatar, Moldavian and Ukrainian folk sounds,” the organisers say.

Directed and choreographed by Bence Vagi, founder and artistic director since 2012, of the Hungarian contemporary circus company Recirquel, My Land has met with phenomenal success since its premiere in 2018 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Performe more than 200 times throughout Europe, this show takes on a very special dimension with the news of the war in Ukraine. All proceeds from this performance will be donated by the Grimaldi Forum Monaco to the Monegasque Red Cross, for Ukraine.
