We are constantly told to want more. Everything should be bigger, better and newer. In Trashpeze three characters find themselves stranded in the land of trash. They are thrown out, abandoned and lost, as everything we no longer want. Through a strange and humorous absurdity, Trashpeze introduces explosive and unique circus techniques on the triple trapeze, cloud swing and dance trapeze.
Wise Fools is a circus trio specialized in triple trapeze and skipping ropes. The trio started circus as a hobby in a Finnish youth circus Sorin Sirkus and they received their professional training in École Superieure des Arts du Cirque (ESAC) in Belgium. The trio graduated from ESAC in 2014 with an original triple trapeze number. During the three years, they developed a style where two catchers swing and toss one flyer.
In January 2015 they won with their work a silver medal at the prestigious Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain in Paris. They have since worked for example with the world-famous Cirque du Soleil, the German variety company GOP and various street art festivals in Korea, Spain, Belgium and Israel.
In 2017 the Wise Fools were joined by the South-African Jaimee Allen who is a 2017 graduate from ESAC. In addition to replacing one of the original Wise Fools, Jaimee is specialized in cloud swing.
In 2017 the Wise Fools started to create their first longer project Trashpeze.
