Party Animals - The Circus Party

Party Animals is a hybrid circus party with back flipping DJs, welcoming warmth and a dance floor seduction that will keep you dancing all the way home.

Party Animals is an exploratory journey into the world of modern cabaret and club entertainment with the second year students of DOCH's Bachelor Programme in Circus and Creator of Wonders Nalle Laanela.

Working with Party Animals, the circus students have created new cabaret acts while exploring the boundary between a show and a party.
