Cirque Mania #14 - On the Move
In a world where more and more people seem to be facing each other, a comma after your point of view is the best antidote.
Two completely different characters and styles immerse themselves in each other in this performance. Acrobatics and Breakdance come together on stage. They research each other's codes and vocabulary and learn from each other. Can the genres be combined to create something unique, without losing the separate identities?
On The Move:
The theme of 'bridging differences' is central to On the Move. The central questions are: how can we as very different people work together and live in a place that is actually too small for that? And how can you meet while speaking another language? We want to convey that if you are open to each other, you can come closer to each other. Contact with other worlds broadens your view. In today's society, where people seem to be opposing each other on many levels – poor/rich, theoretically/practically educated, black/white, virus deniers/vaccine preachers – a comma after your point of view is the best antidote.
You see two completely different characters, who gradually deepen into each other. Acrobatics and breakdance (often called 'breaking' or 'b-boying' in the scene itself), two disciplines with major differences as well as common ground, we use as a breeding ground to investigate how we can combine the codes and vocabularies from both forms to create to achieve something of their own, without losing the separate identities. Circus in itself is a celebration of diversity. Where dancers train for years to be able to move exactly synchronously, or to perform the same movements as others, but just a little more beautiful and higher, circus is about being as different and individual as possible. The more personal your style, the better. That is also one of the interfaces with breakdance, which is also always sought where there is always a search for new ways of moving and signature moves, which no one else does. The more extraordinary, the louder the applause. Both disciplines also have a high power of persuasion and expression, which makes them extremely suitable for conveying the message in an accessible way.
