The Clown’s life is coming to an end. He is about to enter the unknown, but before the ‘final curtain call’ he needs to leave his collar behind, taking the last steps only with the nakedness of his soul.

As the Müpa organizers said on the official site, in this production, the disguise is removed both literally and figuratively, as the performers invite the audience on an unusual inner journey into imaginary realms, where the layers covering and protecting reality disappear.

Fellow travelers and guides in this spectacular production, accompanied and expanded with live music and dancers, are the acrobat artistes of the Recirquel contemporary circus company. The show traverses the borders of circus arts, dance, theatre and music.

The company invited five dancers and four trampoline artists to take part in the year-long creation of The Naked Clown.

The music compositions of the show were recorded with a symphony orchestra, bringing the European music of the 19th and 20th centuries to life with all the flair of the circus.

In Hungarian with English subtitles.


The première was an event of the Budapest Spring Festival. As we wrote a week ago, Russian art will be the focal point of the 39th Budapest Spring Festival (2019) held between April 5 and 22, read more HERE.
