In the seventh part of her adaptation of the “Dream Novel”, Katrina Daschner shines a circus arena’s spotlight on the relationship of a Schnitzleresque couple. In a grotesque show with distorted clowns, colorful costumes, an aggressive wild cat, and bloody self-mutilation, Plum Circus presents itself as an arena of sugary sweet temptations, masquerades, and power games—the bourgeois marriage: a show of strength on a tightrope.
