I love the way that travel takes me to unexpected places. While at TBEX this month, I got the chance to look behind the scenes in the Wallmans Circus in Copenhagen.Karen Christoffersen, their costume designer, introduced me to the process involved in getting the artists ready for their opening night. As with so much in the world, there’s much more to it than simply looking good.
Watch the video below to find out about the substance behind the style…
Lea from TripWolf provided the material of the circus performers rehearsing (we would have loved shots of the artists in the sparkly bras but, as some other guy said, you can’t always get what you want…)
Thank you also to Wallmans Circus Show for allowing me to film there and to Karen Christoffersen & Karin Odermatt for taking part in this experiment!
Thanks to the Canadian Tourist Commission for providing the Flip Camera and Kevin MacLeod for his wonderful music.
