Balagan (literally ‘chaos’, in German), is a state of mind, a mood, a feeling of joy and pure energy.
Last August 2011, I joined forces with eight true musicians, a charismatic singer and other circus performers from all over the world to create a colourful sea of images and feelings – the Balagan show, directed by Sebastiano Toma.
The cast was made by incredibly talented and friendly people, including:
Alba, a gorgeous and superfunny contortionist.
Thomas Dürrfeld and Marie Seeger, as known as Fernando and Serafina, who did lovely ball and club juggling.
Momo Kohlschmidt, one of the most beautiful women I have ever met, who accompanied us with her sweet voice.
I loved spinning my hoops to the live music, a cheeky mix of classical, klezmer, tango and even punk music. The energy of all the musicians on stage added a real buzz to the joy I feel when performing.
All the artists involved in Balagan made this one of the best experiences I have had so far.
