Ladies and gentlemen!
The Dutch-German Ensemble S takes music all over Europe in its own circus tent.

Percussionists Arnold Marinissen, Stephan Meier and Peppie Wiersma present programmes beyond the capacities of a concert hall.

Around, above and in the midst of the audience, CIRCUS S creates space to see, feel, listen, question and marvel. The circus ring is the eardrum, the big top roof the inner ear.

Massimo Mariani of the Milan studio MM&T (Musica, Musicisti e Tecnologie) directs the complementary electronic soundscape.
