Sirkus Íslands on the Road

Sirkus Íslands, Iceland’s only circus, has returned to the capital after visiting Vestmannaeyjar off South Iceland last weekend where 2,000 people watched its shows. The tent has been put up on Klambratún park in central Reykjavík, where three different shows will be staged July 9-12.

The three shows are: Heima er best (‘Home is where the heart is’), a grand family show; S.I.R.K.U.S., for younger spectators; and Skinnsemi (‘Skin sensibility’), a circus cabaret for adults, as described on
