Danny and Pepijn Ronaldo, father and son, together on stage. A quest for reconciliation, between father and son, between performer and audience, between former glory and fresh opportunities.
A surprising, witty, poignant and beautiful portrait of a father-son relationship.
United by a shared passion for music and tricks, they build a bridge between similarities and differences. The father seems entrenched in his past, desperately searching for an age-old but faded feeling of ecstasy. The son seeks to reconcile the old circus created by his father with the world beyond.
The roots of Circus Ronaldo stretch far back into the past, with Danny and Pepijn as the sixth and seventh generations. With seven being a sacred number, they now pay tribute to this past: ‘Sono io?’ (‘Is that me?).
