Zirkus Nemo was founded in 1999 by the Danish actor and comedian Søren Østergaard. In Latin, Nemo means ’no one’ or ’nobody’, and that’s exactly what Søren Østergaard wanted his circus to be about: nothing. A circus with no actual circus acts, but with a range of absurd and poetic comic characters who had no actual skills.
However, having loved the world of circus since he was a child Søren Østergaard has come to deeply admire and highly respect the skills of the ‘real’ circus artists whom he has now included in the Zirkus Nemo experience.
Today, this unique show recipe is attracting interest from all over the circus world, and Zirkus Nemo’s audience count numerous people from the entertainment business, national politicians and the Danish royal family.
