Clown and circus artist Krin Haglund brings her quirky one-woman man show "The Rendez-Vous" to the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center on Saturday, August 8, at 7:00 p.m. as part of the PEAK CIRCUS FESTIVAL.
For tickets visit www.SprucePeakArts.org.
"The Rendez-Vous" is set in a quirky 1920s cabaret where romance, hilarity, buffoonery, and grace converge. While waiting for her date to finally arrive for a romantic evening out, our coquette and ever so slightly foolish heroine piles on the eccentricities to overcome her disappointment. In a succession of personas ranging from the diva, the joker to the cheeky minx, the dazzling Krin Haglund is a master of comedy, aerial silks, juggling and the Cyr Wheel. Like a silent-movie brought to life, Haglund delivers an outstanding performance with impeccable comedic timing.
Krin Haglund is a Montreal-based clown, multidisciplinary circus performer and director. She toured for more than 10 years with many of today's hottest circus companies including 7 Fingers, Cirque Eloize, Cirque du Soleil, and La Clique-now, La Soiree. As an original cast member of Cirque Eloize "Rain," directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, Krin won acclaim as "Rain's deft comedienne," became the first woman to perform the Cyr wheel and originated the role of the bald angel. Krin's first original creation, her one-woman show, "The Rendez-Vous," received critical praise at the 2014 Montreal Completement Cirque. Her other recent project, "CirquePROM," was a hit the 2014 St Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival. Krin graduated from Smith College and trained at San Francisco's Circus Center and Clown Conservatory. With her non-profit company, The Radiant, Krin creates world-class circus performance committed to exploring the intersection of character, comedy and acrobatics. Her creation work is supported by Canada Council for the Arts, Conseil des arts et des lettres du Quebec and TOHU - Cite des Arts du Cirque and the Montreal Playwrights Workshop.
