Mismo Nismo: NOise Cirkus

June 16, 2019 8:00 pm

NOise Circus is a contemporary circus/musical improvised performance that translates the attributes and philosophy of noise music into stage and circus language by researching human experience in a space of discarded objects a.k.a. trash. As creators of the performance, we think we can translate the noise methodology to circus in order to liberate this genre through experimenting and thus find new possible ways of its development. The project plays with capitalist reality and with fictional post-apocalyptic future that can exist at the same time on stage. We give new meaning to discarded objects through play and contemporary circus and performative practices. “What is circus and what its role in the contemporary society is” are the questions that we are most interested in indirectly. The aesthetic of performance is raw, experimental and filled with mistakes. Intra-personal dynamic, space where the used objects were salvaged from and the wider self-organised circus community in Slovenia is of key importance for this project.

Mismo Nismo is a new alt-art circus group from Ljubljana, Slovenia. We are pessimists that want to embrace the uncertainty through the experiences of (precarious) present. Our aesthetic is raw, experimental and filled with mistakes. Form is an experiment and idea is all.

This time they are presenting a work in progress.
