Yablochkov Candle 2016

available for booking / indoor / stage work

Yablochkov Candle combines a concert and an aerial acrobatic performance. Drawing inspiration from the art and performance styles of the 20th century, circus artist Ilona Jäntti and singer-songwriter Aino Venna have created a unique and minimalist cabaret club night. Venna’s music, richly influenced by French chansons and old school rock ‘n’ roll blends effortlessly with Jäntti’s beautiful aerial choreography.

“I left the venue stunned…An amazing show” – The Circus Diaries

“The audience is smitten by these powerful performers, left in awe and contemplation.” ★★★★ – Upper Circle Theatre

“If you’re looking for something a little different this weekend, or want a quiet place to hide with your loved one, Yablochkov Candle is a great evening. Lose yourself in the dim light of those soft candles, sink back, and let the velvet sound and elegant aerial dance float over you” – Bristol247.com
