AS LONG AS WE
Hand to hand acrobatics requires balance and trust, strength and vulnerability, support and commitment. When an acrobatic figure is executed flawlessly, we only see perfection. As long as we wants to show what’s behind these tricks: the endless repetition, the sometimes absurd futility of trying, the boredom of it all. But also the little bright spots: that one well-executed figure, the connection between two artists, the rare moments that something new arises. In a landscape of 100 white coffee cups two bodies engage in working together.
As long as we is an intimate and in your face duet. An attempt to strip the circus arts from all preconceptions, a search for the essence of this young art form.
