Great Flying Circus 
of North Korea

2008 |  Residency in Koninklijk Theater Carré and Platz Im Europavierte Frankfurt |  European Tour

For many years North Korea has led the circus world when it comes to spectacular aerial acrobatics.

Stardust made worldwide headlines when it became the first Western production company to collaborate with the National Circus of Pyongyang.


Producers Henk van der Heijden and Monica Strottman, joined by costume designer Jan Aarntzen, went to North Korea to create this unique performance. Hundreds of authentic costumes were made, all of them inspired by North Korean clothing and history.
