Contemporary Circus

Poetic movements, objects being manipulated to come alive and tell a story, a playful approach with shapes and an interdisciplinary joy of acting … all this is what Contemporary Circus means to me.

Fragilaxie

Objectmanipulation with 2 hula hoops – one covered in yellow and one "naked"

A poetic tale of a distant „Fragilaxie“. A tale about the cycle of rise and fall. A tale about life with all its wonderful high and fleeting low moments. Kristin Lahoop and her two hoops dive right into a fragile world in which the images and associations flash, merge, and drift away: a journey between physical theater, dance and contemporary circus. Cooperation with the director Lionel Menard.

There are two different versions: one short (22 minutes) and one long (55 minutes).
