Headless Girls: Circus Legends on Film

Headless Girls

Mimi Berlin’s Circus legends came to life! Meet the Headless Girls in the photoseries and the short movie ‘Conversations 1 ‘at in the park’ made by Daan/Jansen at Mimi Berlin.

Dutch duo Daan / Jansen collaborated on the photo series ‘Headless Girls’ for Mimi Berlin. They imagined two women who used to work being a circus act in the beginning of the 20th century. These “Headless Girls” meet again after decades, at a park, to have a conversation about the past.
