Circus artists Sasu Peistola and Jenni Lehtinen from Circus company Agit-Cirk bring two their shows Väkevä and Lyydia to Hat Fair Festival in Winchester. Both solo performances will be shown on Saturday July 6th.
The shows will be performed inside a small Dome made of Finnish birch plywood. The seating capacity is around 35 people. Peistola’s Väkevä resembles a traditional travelling funfair strongman show, which is updated to a contemporary circus. In Lyydia, Lehtinen makes acrobatic tricks around the structure of the dome.
Hat Fair is the longest running outdoor arts festival in the UK. Peistola and Lehtinen also performed their shows at Brighton Fringe 2018.
