Argolla 5th Element

We are presenting a new dimension of contemporary circus arts and performing arts in hour-and-half-long performances. The multimedial artistic creation is a story about the search for a pure essence that interconnects everything. It brings amusement, intensity, visual pleasure and live music.

Breathtaking acrobatic acts, dancing acts, unique scenes and original costumes combined into an outstanding multimedial performance. The first night was held at World Art Circus Festival in Gwangyang, South Korea. More than 60 000 people have seen the show during 2 weeks.

"...and that spark is in everyone."

The Story

Argolla Gate is a portal to a mysterious land of elements, full of mystic beings. The main character Kapillo, driven by the emptiness of his soul, ventures to cross its threshold. He is accompanied by an enchantress, who presents him with 4 basic elements in their beauty, fragility, strength and cruelty. By means of them, he tries to discover the mythical 5th element mentioned in ancient texts as a pure essence, which “Gods breathed”.
