Sehr fragil

A body in the hoop, pure silence. Then: a twitch of the hand, a movement of the shoulder – welcome to the journey in Kristin Lahoops wonderland. The Hula Hoop melds with her body and both tell a story about life with all its soft and hard moments. Kristin Lahoop combines Hula Hoop manipulation, dance and movement theater into a total work of art with outstanding precision, speed and poetry.

Reactions from the audience:

“This reminds me of Pina Bausch,” “That was the most beautiful Hula Hoop Act I’ve seen for years,” “Incredibly impressive and touching,” “You’ve invented a new genre, Contemporary Hula Hoop.”

Sally & Kelly

Sally has prepared a fantastic show, only Kelly does not know much about it yet. They bring many Hula hoops with them and start to do nonsense. They bite and kick Hula hoops or stuck in them. Beside the hilarious clowning, they present 2 solo and one duo act with high artistic skills and surprising singing performance.

    Fragility, fractures, despair and love. All this is expressed. Each body movement is precision. A slight twitch increases to a total outburst. Kristin Lahoop fights with the hoop and tames it again. The hula hoop is sometimes a heavy chunk, which takes her out of balance and shortly thereafter it dances like a feather around her body. Body and hula hoop are initiating a game that the audience will spin into a fantastical story.
