It is the year 1933. Hitler and his Nazis are starting a power grab in Germany. Among the artists and acrobats of Circus Welt, a small circus traveling in the south of Germany, are Jews, blacks, gays, and communists. They all hope that if they do not get involved, the storm will blow over. Will it?
Then one day a mysterious stranger enters and asks to be a clown. His arrival becomes the catalyst in this epic story of love, hate, life, and death.
Loosely based on Leonid Andreyev's 1915 classic He Who Gets Slapped, Circus Welt is written and directed by the internationally noted stage director Pavel Cerny. This production features a large cast of actors well known from Hollywood films, TV, and stage. World Premiere.
