Cirque Bouffon was created in 1999 by Frédéric Zipperlin alias Boul and Anja Krips.
Zipperlin, former member of the worldly famous Cirque du Soleil, carries out with his company Cirque Bouffon a new kind of artistic theatre based on the philosophy of Nouveau Cirque. A whole and unique aesthetic artwork emerges from the connection of elements such as circus artistry, comedy, music, theatre and dance. A story that abruptly and charmingly kidnaps the viewer and takes them to the parallel world of the “Bouffon”, putting a spell on them by the means of amazing images full of poetry.
Nouveau Cirqueís influence, Cirque Bouffonís philosophy and the stylistics of contemporary music: it all comes together as an aesthetic whole art-work under the musical direction of the composer Sergej Sweschinskij, bringing the viewers to amazement, laughter and above all to dream.
