Buskers

Martika Daniels - Sideshow Stuntwoman

Martika Daniels is on the cutting edge of entertainment. You'll find her playing with several sharp objects in quite unusual ways. She walks on the edge of swords, across broken glass, lays down on nails and swallows swords. Her show is fascinating to watch and more amazing when she survies. She comes from an ancient tradition of gypsy entertainers who developed these odd talents in order to make their living. Martika makes her living too by killing it at every show. Come see her courageous and crazy skills on show right here. 

Last Carnival Circus School Acrobats

The Last Carnival presents aerial acrobatics, crazy contortionists and feats of strength performed by their elite troupe of well trained students. You will be amazed to see people you know doing incredible things! There are circus school super stars everywhere. 

Tricks of the Light

Tricks of the Light take their job seriously. Which is obvious from the moment the first match is struck. What happens then is a marvelous blend of music, fire, dance, manipulation and magic that goes beyond the simple parts. So, find a front row seat, sit back and let them take you on ride that started long ago and will continue far beyond our world. The trip of fire and soul, dance and spirit alive on the street.
