Synthesizing the genres of¬†circus¬†and variety, this clowns¬†base their performance on the theatrical art of pantomime. Masters of¬†physical comedy, they have worked together with some of the greatest names in theatre history (including¬†Marcel Marceau¬†and Slava Polunin) to produce their own special brand of humour.¬†This clown act has won prizes and laureates at festivals the world over and where ever they perform, laughter follows.
Victories and prizes gained at various festivals and competitions brought huge popularity and a fan following to the group, which was granted the status of "Professional Theatre" in 1989. Since their first tour of Germany, our clowns¬†have made lasting impressions upon audiences, and have provoked great interest from the press and on TV.
In 1991 they were included in the¬†World Clown Association¬†in Bognor Regirz, Great Britain, and their status as first rate comedians was confirmed when they took the Gold Prize in Stuttgart at the 1st International Contest of Actors in a Variety Show. This event was the launch pad to many other countries and the competitions, new awards and achievements. Memorable meetings and joint performances with stars such as 'Mini-Max', Dimitri, Olli, Hardy Hatter, Jango Edwards, 'Kolombaoni', Polunin, and 'Licedei' have gone to further inspire the group and to hone their theatrical skills.
In 1997 this clowns¬†received their greatest career highlight and inspiration during a meeting in Brussels with the great Marcel Marceau, the world master of pantomime. By studying and analyzing the creative works of M. Marceau and other great comedians, such as Charley Chaplin and Buster Keaton, our clowns¬†have developed their own original style.
The distinguishing feature of ouri clown¬†is improvisation and continuous contact with audience. Their clown names mean a rich combination of mimicry and physical theatre, the kind of comedy that appeals to everyone, irrespective of age.
Due to their repertoire which comprises of solo programs as well as group performances, our clowns possess a wide experience of combining their¬†clown show¬†with performers of other genres.
Their clown¬†theatre of a¬†physical comedy¬†has obtained world recognition, going on tour and continuing to give concerts in Europe, South America, Japan, Germany, and other countries.
