An interactive performative adventure in the forest. Starting from a blindfolded guided walk, the audience are led into the forest where three circus artist and a musician has let their creativity blossom. Inspired by ideas from nature science, nordic myths and children play they guide the audience through a world of life in the forest.
Plast is an exploratory circus performance interwoven with live music. Opening the realms of the magnificent, humble and the calm ‘Plast’ touches and moves.
A plastic floating magically like the sea. The light touching it with a shimmering veil. A body wrapped in plastic suspended by the hair, unravelling, music flooding. Two bodies climbing and spinning in a rope, balancing a block of ice on the head. Will the balance break? How do we listen to each other?
NESA I JORDA
Nesa i jorda – Nose in the soil – is a puzzling circus performance about the secrets of the forest.
Did you know that the fungus helps the trees talk to each other? They connect the whole underground of the forest, like a telephone line!
Pondering, we explore the fairy-tales from our reality. Two aerial acrobats and a musician climb, dig, balance and plant. Could we possibly be as strong as the ants?
To the violin’s dreamy and playful tones, the acrobats explore the height, the earth and what is underground. What if they could find the beginning of a tree?
BASTARD – CIRKUS XANTI
The solo show Bastard directed by Sverre Waage, is played in the worlds smallest circustent with an aerial rig. Through text and ropeclimbing Karoline is wondering about how the body and the mind works and why. The show has played over 200 times in Norway, Iceland, Portugal and Sweden.
VIXEN – TANTER
Absurd, insane and magnificent; three women throw themselves at female stereotypes – building them up and tearing them apart. What is a strong woman and what makes her break? Vixen is a power blast of energy, performed with comic timing, absurd images and pathos. The restrictions around presenting yourself as female come to be like the form of a poem, a space vast and rich with resonance. This is a show for anyone who questions the rules of being yourself. With two ropes, contortion and a swinging trapeze, between the elegant and the hysterical, the brutal and the self-controlled, Tanter bring a full-on hour of fanatically female soul flashing explosion.
DRAUMEFANGAREN – FRIKAR
For thousands of years the water has been grinding its way through the rocky parts of the Åbjørajuv in Valdres. The waterfalls are painted white and the natural pools are black. For the audience we have created two hiking routes which you can choose to experience the show from: one white and easy route, and one black more challenging route. Both are 2.5km. Along the routes you will meet approximately twenty artistic installations including dance, performance art, new-circus, music, sculptures and installation art. By the end of the route you will reach the final waterfall where there will be a 45min dance performance by FRIKAR X.
GUDS OLYDIGA REVBEN – CIRKUS CIRKÖR / DRAMATEN / MALMÖSTADSTEATER
En förbannad feminist läser Bibeln. Det blir en jävla cirkus.
I boken Guds olydiga revben får vi följa med när Gunilla Thorgren läser Bibeln med feministiska glasögon. Det är en absurd, rolig och skräckfylld upptäcktsfärd genom årtusenden av kvinnohat och förtryck – och av envist motstånd. En idéhistorisk resa från antiken till Martin Luther där vi får en feministisk historietolkning. Vi får följa med i sökandet efter kvinnornas roll och röster, som inte tidigare fått komma fram. Hur mycket av de frågor som vi brottas med idag har sitt ursprung i Bibeln? Nu blir den upptäcktsresan teatercirkus i regi av Cirkus Cirkörs Tilde Björfors.
ELVEN OG HAVET – DET LILLE MEKANISKE LOPPESIRKUSET
”Elven og Havet” (The sea and the river) is a show with ”Det lille mekaniske loppesirkuset” and Rudi Skotheim Jensen as director. The show takes its inspiration from Norways maritime belonging and what it means to be out on the sea. It is an adventurous journey through myths, legends and absurdities.
My counterweight rope-act from Elven og Havet:
KINEMA – CIRCO AEREO
A living ragdoll, worlds most bigheaded man and a daredevil who challenges himself to battle meet at the stage. Juggler tries to survive from the tempest and acrobat from limbs that strech like chewing gum. International group of artists helps, bugs and interferes each other by random logic. Pictures become alive and movements and bodies duplicate as in a kaleidoscope.
Kinema’s talent and humour charms the audience in the rewarded Circo Aereo’s new production.
