Shows and Stars at HANSA-PARK in 2018

New Variety Show “Timeless”

The all new variety show at northern Germany’s biggest show theatre features international top acrobats from all over Europe.

The Liazeed Duo
The Liazeed Duo give equilibristics a new name when they balance and spin with grace, power and beauty. Not only are they themselves feet-first head up, they also turn the laws of nature upside down. Gravity takes a backseat the moment they step on the stage. Their passion for handstand acrobatics combined with charisma is unique in the world. They won the Silver Award at the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival and had the audiences on their feet at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, at the Palazzo Mannheim and numerous renowned variety theatres. They also featured in TV shows such as Good Morning America.

Paul Chen has the audience in awe with his performance which alternates between pure strength and delicate balance. He makes the impossible possible. His fast, spectacular jumps - sometimes over great distances - contrast with quiet and powerful elements. He even crosses a narrow bridge on his unicycle as if it were the most natural thing on earth.

The unicycling world champion combines classic unicycle tricks with hard street-style BMX biking. Stairs, podiums or trampolines are no obstacles to Paul Chen. He simply flies over them.

Up Step
Four jugglers throw colourful glowing clubs on barrels through the air at a speed the eye can barely follow, creating a fascinating image that is constantly moving and changing. You won’t know where to look first.

Happy4 Boys on jumping stilts show acrobatic routines of the finest. Merely watching them perform will make you dizzy.

Craftsmanship of the Vikings
A feature of the Park in 2018 too: the HANSA-PARK artist blacksmith and the HANSA-PARK wood carver! Based on ancient Viking models the two artists work skilfully and with a love of detail. HANSA-PARK‘s guests can watch them work from up close.
