Circus comes to the theatre. The Theater Casino Zug launches its new season by opening up the stage for contemporary circus. The first visiting company will be Compagnie Cirque Aital from France, with their brilliant production entitled «Pour le meilleur et pour le pire», featuring two thrilling performers who form a dream circus couple! With the help of a wilful red Simca 1000, enormous Frenchman Victor Cathala and delicate Finn Kati Pikkarainen use their irrepressible charm and boundless artistic skill to tell the story of their love and their lives as circus artists – always on the road, always relying on one another, for better or for worse – in French, «pour le meilleur et pour le pire».

Victor and Kathi have gone on their honeymoon in their old red Simca, and the holiday turns out to be a testing time for this odd couple. With the car radio providing the backing track, an acrobatic love story unfolds. As does a balancing act, with air ducts on the exhaust pipe and artistic differences with a difference. It all makes for pure theatre featuring furious acrobatics, rapid plot twists and above all fun for young and old alike from six years and upwards. «Tout est beau dans ce spectacle,» wrote a delighted critic, and indeed, the performance is replete with beauty.
