Contemporary circus meets dance, meets performance art. Two performers create their own game: They play with falling, with being caught, with unexpected risk and blind trust. Again and again, the game threatens to tip, pushing trust to its limits. This negotiation takes place not only between the two performers but also between them and the audience.
The performance deals in a nuanced way with the themes of responsibility and civil courage. Who ultimately takes responsibility in the end?
“Theater is a form of knowledge; it should and can therefore be a means of transforming society. Theater can help us build our future, rather than just waiting for it.”
