Sparkling Sprites – Christmas Adventure in the Circus
Christmas is the holiday where we celebrate love among our family, friends, loved ones – where we take our time to be with the people who are important to us. It is the holiday of caring and compassion. In our accelerated word we are prone to measure the value of a present in the price we paid in money – the present which we buy and give in haste without really putting our heart into it.
The sparkling sprites, these tiny, mischievous creatures do not like this attitude at all. So they decide to play a trick on the humans, and teach them the real spirit of Christmas once and for all! So they hide the presents, and they will not give it back until they see that during the big search for the presents the humans rediscover the real value of Christmas!

Konstantin A. Krutyko
Chinese Swing rod act
Wonder and awe radiates throughout the young Ukrainian artist’s act, in which pulsating swings and tense moments of anticipation succeed each other over again, all the to the rhythm of sacral tunes, leading the viewer in a cathartic experience. The complexity and aesthetic fineness of the tricks and moves presented on the stick swinging in the air hints at perfection, reflecting a mood familiar to the celebration of love.
High wire act
In his energetic, dynamic acts, Krisztián, member of the renowned Hungarian Ádám circus-dynasty, goes all the way on the wire suspended way up high on a unicycle, skipping rope in confidence and balances while sitting- and later standing on a chair placed on the wire; all without trapeze belts or safety nets. He made his debut before tremendous applause in the 2014 “Hungarian Act” of the International Circus Festival; he toured the globe with his act, including Holland, France, Germany, Bulgaria and Romania.
Drum juggler / Badminton act / Clown
Andrey’ acts bring humor and joy in the circus ring, showcasing virtuoso-level sense of rhythm and his impeccable juggler- and magician-skills in the company of his wacky assistants. Their situational comedy-based performance acts win over the crowd, destroying diaphragms worldwide.
Gentle giants – magnificent mastiffs – and sweet tiny dogs cover the stage, presenting the eternal bond and friendship between human and canine in the playful production. Mastiffs are one of the most ancient dog-species: a gentle, attentive, cheerful, brave, intelligent, loyal, protective and social partner of humans. The act of Tatjana and her friends guarantees smiles on all the faces and within hearts.
Hus István and Fehérgyarmati Adrienn
As a member of a three-generation circus-dynasty, István learned the art of balancing from his grandparents and his mother. He made his debut on stage at the age of 16 with his sister and later dabbled in air- and board acts as well. After finishing her studies in acrobat school, Adrienn travelled the world with her trapeze act; they began practicing for their joint production in February 2018, which they have first presented for an audience in June.
The Russian Tula State Circus Acrobat Group conquers the audience with a bedazzling retro-party in the ring of the Municipal Grand Circus. The vision of art director Aliyev Rafik Zakirovich was put on stage in 2003, garnering accolades worldwide ever since. They have introduced the act in France, Poland, Peru, Venezuela, Columbia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan as well.
Nearing Christmas, the wonders proliferate, the lights turn on, the wild ones are tamed and peace is born. The holiday magic and the message of giving shine through the act of the snow-white tigers and their master. The act radiating fine elegance, perfect concentration and playfulness exhibits the artistic humility and attentiveness of the Russian trainer. No request is impossible for these gorgeous tigers; they fulfill their trainer’s every wish for a smile, a treat or for the applause. The act is the perfect harmony of collaboration between man and beast.
The young 18 year old artist moves with virtuosic skills and precision on the circus floor; in his lyrical act, he tells the story of Narcissus with the perfect unison of dance- and circus artistry. The production’s inception was in 2015, under the tutelage of art teacher Yuri Pozdnyakov in Myhorod, where Konstiantyn was learning dancing since he was 5 years old. His professional dance- and juggler skills guarantee audience amazement.
With impeccable elegance and airy lightness, Elman’s and Elena’s act entitled Antares entices the audience; the act was created in 2018, Minsk, in the Belorussian National Circus based on the vision of Alieva Alla. The breathtaking act exhibits the limitless trust between in the amazing heights.
