            First it's about meetings. Every artist in the company has their own background : different circus school, different cultures, different languages, different lifestyles.

 

The chaos consists of six individuals that uses acrobatics, high-fives, an air-zooka and Fika to function in life. If you are not familiar with Fika then this company and show might be the perfect introduction to this charming tradition of having coffee and cake to make life easier. 

 

We decided to make it simple, to gather on values like honesty, sharing and tolerance. We try to take decisions through dialogue and respect, without any masks, and if possible around a good and "gesund" meal. Or a Fika.

 

Our style enables us to express and explore how we can push the limits, what seems like a crash might not be a crash. Who knows? I KNOW!

 

Our acrobatics has a uniqueness which has even changed how we call and name tricks. A Super Mario, the throw ups, six dogs high, Perry fucks it up, the Perrynami or the Tsunanouck we still don't know.  These are all part of our training, our show and inspired by who we are as a group. That together with enhanced personal qualities that now have created a group of characters on stage that only exists by performing our show. 

 

And then came that syncretic circus.

 

 

                                           The project - a 60 min circus show 

                                                       "Babel, Glöm*"

                            Syncretic circus with coffee, cake and magnesium

                                                                                                                                *forget

Syncretism - Dealing with differences

The show is about exactly this: observe, accept and enjoy whatever makes us unique and special, and combine it with tolerance. So we embrace the concept of syncretism, it tends to facilitate co-existence and unity between otherwise different cultures and world views.

 

 

Circus as a language

This project is based on the circus technique partner acrobatics : hand to hand and banquine. That is already creating differences depending on ones role in each trick (basing, flying, spotting, doing nothing). We are also interested in the links between a performative discipline and the unspoken language (contact, trust, concentration). Therefore, we want to combine circus with theatre and movement to go beyond the acrobatics, creating our own language, larger than words, bigger than bodies, stronger than performances.

 

 

Surrealism is life

Doing circus is beyond reality. Being on stage is weird. Fight to stay together despite our major differences, questioning violence and to keep trusting each other is not so common. What is real for someone is not necessarily so for someone else. We mostly want to adapt ourselves and defend a small world where all of this is possible, where fantasy and reality are having Fika together. Create the feeling of a society on a smaller scale with different laws and perceptions from our "normal" world, and not so far after all. That begins directly when the audience enters into the room. We are already there, in the same time in the audience's world and ours. Frontiers are opened, worlds are gathering.

 

 

Finally

A journey filled with laughter and humor, twists and backflips high up in the air, beatbox, poetry, handstands on everything and everyone, acrobatics in all directions, at least one hard slap, crisis, crashes, coffee, cake, tears, love and a very effective way to apply magnesium. We believe art to be a highway into peoples feelings and a catalyst for change!

The goal has, since we started working together in February of 2016, been to create an indoor show of 60 min. The project has until now been self financed from our own pockets. Before the premiere this fall we still need to finish the sound and light creation for the show. Since our own money is not enough we are now asking the world for help!
