JAM SHENANIGANS_splash_Copyright_Heroen Bollaert_LR_145.JPG





With Splash, Jam.Shenanigans aims to share their love for comically absurd circus with the public.

Splash invites the audience on a journey towards an absurd dream world far away from everyday reality, where a swimming pool filled with 25,000 balls stands in the center, and where water activities form the starting point for a juggling feast.


Jam.Shenanigans wants to promote healthy craziness as a counterbalance to a

polarizing and self-deprecating society. With splash, they want to stimulate the audience's imagination and push forward the beauty of a youthful spirit. This is all through object manipulation, physical theater and visual illusions, topped with a good dose of humor and silliness.


Splash is a full-length family show that is made for outdoor settings.
The show will go into production in January 2024 and premiere in May 2025.

With this show, Jam.Shenanigans is a finalist for CircusNext 2024.
CircusNext is  a European circus label: the creators selected by a European jury stand out for their singularity and creativity. Their art works question us, jostle us, enchant us, move us.
