Cirko Paniko und Twisted Fairground will be participating in the Circus Spectaculum in CHRISTIANIA in Copenhagen, Denmark in August 2010.
Today I came back from Chalon sur Saone in France where I spent the last days on the Chalone dans la rue festival. A festival for theatre in the street, circus and related things. I loved it. It was really great! Too much to see it all. A lot of creative people. An atmosphere and so inspiring, would love to have this always and every day!!
Circo Paniko and Twisted Fairground, the people I met in Bremen offered me to put up my stand next to them. And it fittet well to the themes of Twisted Fairground a fair around 1900. A time when the bearded lady had also her place on the fairgrounds. I offered the people to enter into my little world of bearded ladies. To talk to me or to get a palmreading.
In front of these buildings the group “Coliflor” played and showed their skill in acrobatics in the afternoons. A great show with a very sexy bearded lady – a man dressed as a woman anouncing the fight between two men. They are amazing in the acrobatic they do. One man of the group accompanies the play with the sound of the sitar. This group is amazing! I love to see them. They have a second play which they showed in the circus tent. And if you want to see them you will have the opportunity if you come to Kopenhagen to Christiania in August, 5th to 7th.
You can book me now with the stand for festivals or markets. Just write to the email adress you find under the contact above and I will tell you the details. I speak and understand several languages. English, German, French and some Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.

I found an article today, from the year 2004 about Vivian Wheeler, on stage called Melinda Maxie, who was or still is touring with a side show throu the U.S. HERE is the link to this article that is very interesting and also touching.
The last days I spend in Bremen on the Breminale, a festival with circus, music and more…Sonnday in the evening it was over and the tents were taken down…..
Saturday and sunday I watched the performances of Circo Paniko
SUPER!! I liked it a lot. Great artists, music, jonglage, clowns and much more, you can watch videos on youtube of them.
The sunday I was sitting between the tent of Twisted Fairground and next to the tent of Circo Paniko on a chair and tried to earn money as a bearded lady. I offered to take a picture with or of me and to give some tip. Well it did not work well….for earning money, I just got 3,50 euro for the whole afternoon! But people were amused and smiled….Well Germany hasn´t got a story of sideshows as the US or England. I offered my postcards with a picture of me, and sold one! But I had a lot of fun trying this and watching the reaction of the people!
Initially I was thinking to do this with a polaroid camera, but now they do not produce the films anymore, and old ones are being sold on ebay for 2 euor per picture, so too much. Hopefully they will produce them again one day. Now I am preparing to go to france to a festival in Chalon sur Saone where a lot of people are going to show what they perform on the street. Circus Panico will be there too and also Twisted Fairground another group that I have seen in Bremen, who do a great show too.
