Opus 7

Circa Tsuica
France

Welcome to the mischievous and playful world of Circa Tsuica who serve a cocktail of physical feats and brass beats performed by a company of mesmerising musicians who are also daredevil acrobats.

As the rollicking brass band plays a joyous blend of ripping rhythms they display their circus skills without dropping a note. Underscoring the action with their unique fusion of Balkan brass and American jazz, the seven musicians provide the action as they perform a heady mix of risk-taking circus skills.

Share in the spectacle as Circa Tsuica shake the party in this funny and festive show.

  • 'Thrills, chaos and rousing brass'

    Tim Hughes, Oxford Times

  • 'Like a brass version of tin-pan percussion show Stomp, Opus 7 sees the company embarking on a series of unlinked set-piece showpieces of acrobatic and musical dexterity – acts brought to life through Balkan-style brass, gypsy stomp and klezmer.'

    Tim Hughes, Oxford Times

  • 'Circa Tsuica has invented the Circus Brass Band, mastering acrobatics and musical rhythm, they turn art into "a weapon of mass construction".'

    Lemon Mag

  • 'A hugely enjoyable night then. I’ll never look at a brass band the same again.'

  • Company Biography

    Circa Tsuica is the musical offspring of Cheptel Aleïkoum, a French company known for bringing innovative pieces to a growing number of people. Other shows include Le Repas  and Le Bal Cirque.

    The members of Cheptel Aleïkoum (or livestock in English) met over 10 years ago, when they were studying at the Centre National des Arts du Cirque (National Centre for Circus Arts, Châlons-en-Champagne, France). When they’re not touring the world, they live together as a community in Saint Agil, a small village in the West of France, where they’ve brought a passion for brass bands.

    Their name alone is enough to give you an idea of what they’re aiming for: “Tsuica” is Romanian for “brandy”, like the party spirit that inhabits all of their creations. Fusing amazing skills and live music, they create a playground where humour meets jaw-dropping acrobatic tricks.

    Previously, they toured Europe with Opus 2, Fanfarerie Nationale, Maintenant ou Jamais. 

    They’ll tour the UK for the first time in 2016.
