Dominik Halamek and colleagues delight the audience in Wolfratshauser Loisachhalle with their acrobatic numbers.
- The acrobatic ensemble put together by Dominik Halamek on Saturday required an extremely good physical condition and a lot of strength.
Because only 200 visitors were allowed in the Loisachhalle due to the strict Corona security requirements, the "Circus of Fantasy" performed in the afternoon and again in the evening.
In addition, the Waldram choreographer had developed a creative seating and catering concept: instead of narrow rows of seats, visitors could sit in groups of two or four at bistro tables.
The drinks, which were included in the entrance fee, were served by the performers themselves in ice-cold buckets before the show and during the break.
This service was also liked by families who attended the afternoon show with their children.
There was understanding for the requirement that the masks could only be removed for drinking.

The show started with a lively disco number and a gymnastics performance by the Italian Francesco Mazzone.
The sight of his bare muscled upper body should have filled not a few men in the audience with envy and delighted the women.
Then Lina Ritters and Svetlana Wottschel showed breathtaking movements on the trapeze.
In between, Halamek helped the female performers into their glittering clothes in order to dance with them a little later and to encourage the visitors to clap along.
“I love this glamor,” confessed the 37-year-old.

Mood highlights were undoubtedly the choreography for the Queen's hit song “We Will Rock You” and the lascivious interpretation of the Marlene Dietrich success “I'm set for love from head to toe”.
A juggling session with fluorescent elements and a medley with Madonna and Marylin Monroe hits rounded off the very varied show.
“I wanted to prove that you can present such an idea even in these difficult times
At the end there was thunderous applause from the audience for the artists, who had only been able to rehearse two days before their performance.
“I wanted to prove that you can present such a performance even in these difficult times,” said Dominik Halamek with satisfaction.
The fact that he had fulfilled his self-imposed requirement “Happy and safe” - in German: happy and safe - could be seen above all from the euphoric faces of the audience.
