Cirkruskus got inspired by old circus clowns: endearing characters with red noses, tiny hats, big shoes, and unwavering optimism.
Cirkruskus combines the art of the clown with different techniques—such as mime, puppetry, and magic—to create an imaginary circus.
Ruskus Patruskus becomes one of the characters of the classical circus, such as the master of ceremonies, the strongman, the magician and the juggler.
This play was born when Ruskus, at the beginning of his career, performed in the streets of the towns of Catalonia, entertaining the little ones with his large suitcase full of surprises.
For this reason, Cirkruskus still maintains the lively and bright rhythm of street acts and is ideal for events that require the involvement of all the children in attendance: kids not only laugh and have fun but also take part on stage!

We enjoyed a great show with puppets, magic, music and lots of laughs from young and old! He got many kids involved; he got them all eating out of his hand, and even his parents too! Everyone was super attentive. We met circus characters like the strongman, the juggler and the circus clown. When he finished, many boys and girls came out to hug him! Perfect, we will repeat!
