Lola and her red shoes dancing with Cirkus Polski
«Lola and her red shoes dancing with Cirkus Polski» was a performance by Enstad & Nilseng, which point of departure is a meeting between two people longing to fulfil their lifework. Could something come out of the nostalgia, or is it just sentimental and tormenting?
Previously, actress Marika Enstad and dancer Ulf Nilseng had worked together in the performance «Det Motsatte Prosjekt». In «Lola and her red shoes dancing with Cirkus Polski», they wanted to explore each other in a new context.
«... a stylish, lush and colourful circus varieté where glamour and humour as well as the tragedy come through powerfully... The musicians are an incredibly charming part of the performance, and they play a lot of good music that is well-woven into the whole. (...)»
