Where the House is going: wheel House street circus

It is difficult to surprise anyone with a house on wheels today, but A house on Wheels is quite possible. Wheel House – an unusual circus project in which two acrobats entertain the audience by riding through the streets in a very unusual “home”.
The Wheel house is not much different from an ordinary apartment – the same curtains on the Windows, pots and pans on the “shelves”, clocks and paintings on the walls, even a bed is available. However, in comparison with this “house”, any communal apartment will seem like a mansion: Wheel House is an ordinary wheel, in which all household items are placed. The house “moves” due to the fact that its inhabitants demonstrate real miracles of balancing, jumping over each other, and thereby driving the wheel in motion.

To make the performance look even more believable, the circus performers are dressed in rags, and their house is going nowhere. Strolling artists move slowly under the characteristic creak of the wheel, and surprised spectators can follow close by. Despite the tiny size of the house, the couple makes a couple of stops to demonstrate how they manage to cope with the daily chores of the household.
The unusual project was founded in 2006 by the Acrojou Circus Theatre (artistic Directors Jeni Barnard and Barney White). For several years of existence, the amazing house has traveled (in the literal sense of the word) nine countries, pleasing about 60 thousand people with performances. In the Arsenal of circus performers, six unique programs, each of which originally combines “theatrical acrobatics, comedic elements and moments of risk that take your breath away”. Over the years, the traveling circus has gained a lot of fans and continues to please the audience with its creative findings.
