• Kompani Giraff

Tråkmånsafton (A Humdrum Day) is a circus show about the most boring day of the year. When Antti is bored he goes to Jonny The Scrap Collector and Leif Nordin - the best neighbors in the world. They claim that just like Christmas Eve and Midsummer’s Eve, there is also a ”Humdrum Day”. It’s simply the dullest day of the year and it’s just today. There are many fine traditions such as cleaning, wardrobe fishing and bathtub diving. But even though they strive to be really bored, they fail - they have simply too much fun.

6-10 years

Motivation of the jury:

A visual, comic circus show about everyday boredom. Starting with a narrative, the group lets the circus build on the story with juggling, object manipulation and acrobatics. In a setting where just about anything can suddenly appear from just about anywhere, and where costumes and masks bring kitsch and pop art to mind, Boredom Eve is a feast for the eye, also philosophizing on the meaning of boredom. Circuses for children and young people are taking off enormously in Sweden, and Kompani Giraff have made a name for themselves as one of the foremost groups in that particular genre.
