“Juggling Concert” is a juggling performance with original music and lyrics. Formally, it refers to the structure and performance of teenage singing groups or bands and transposes them into the framework of a circus or juggling show.

The performers in the performance exceed 18 kilometres of the running meter of the ball. Juggling moves between the position of the front(wo)man and back-vocal or back-juggle through a deciphered membrane. The show touches on topics of success and failure of late capitalism, personal responsibility for the success and failure of late capitalism, subcultural identities, technological progress and possible technological dystopia, drug use and abuse, the relationship between the community and the individual, giving up youth, structural violence and violence against women.

Mismo Nismo was officially formed in 2018, but has existed since 2014 as an informal group or collective with the goal to develop, expand and educate in the field of modern and more experimental forms of the circus. With the art project “NOise Circus”, they become the laureates of the circusnext, edition 2018/2019.

The performance of “Juggling Concert” in Split is realized with the financial support of the Kultura nova Foundation, the Ministry of Culture and the media of the Republic of Croatia and the City of Split.
