Clinch is a duo from Groningen, and consists of Gerda Tjakkes and Rob van den Bos.

Together they attended the circus school of Joe Andy in Arnhem.

They also followed training in the Netherlands and France in acrobatics, various circus techniques, trapeze, martial arts, mime and theater.

In recent years, Clinch has brought various new acts to various circuses in the Netherlands and Norway, and at Carnivale, an itinerant nostalgic event with fairground, circus, freaks and science elements.

Here are a number of other acts, including an act with real chickens, a comic juggling act and the nostalgic viewing boxes.

Clinch has been playing at theater and street festivals, schools, openings, parties, markets and circuses worldwide for years

For example, at many festivals in Europe, the Carnival of Venice, Holland Village Nagasaki in Japan, the Festival of Arts in Singapore, during Queen's Day in Bergen op Zoom, Clinch was at the head of then HRH Prince Willem Alexander, at JBR festival in Dubai and in April 2019 at Childrens Reading Festival in Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates


Clinch provides various performances and animations with acrobatics, juggling, fire and nostalgic viewing cabinets.

Combinations and special requests are possible in consultation.

"Nostalgic Viewing Boxes"


Clinch is proud to have found this old phenomenon and to present it to you in a somewhat newer form.

From the late 1800s, the fairground viewing box was a wildly popular phenomenon.

The viewing boxes from Clinch do not bring you world news.

You will be surprised by the depths of the cabinets, a special animal, an optical illusion or a real peep show.

A nice side effect is that there is interaction between the viewers of the different viewing boxes.

Clinch also walks around with the viewing cabinets.

Fire show: "Pyromaniacs"

Clinch, fight, turn, stroke, jump, spit, spot and play with fire.

It is an exciting, fast and fiery spectacle supported by a solid beat.

This year, Clinch comes with fire whips, burning torches, sticks, one or more burning hoops, fire strokes and spitting.

Preferably in twilight or dark. The show is made for outside, but in consultation also possible inside

Street show: "PowerFlower"

Clinch goes back in time to flower power to surprise the audience with Peace and Love.

The show is a mix of flowers, juggling, balancing, whipping, swiping, acrobatic tours, even more flowers and a healthy dose of humor.
