“Pendulum” (working title) is an investigation into all things that sway, rock, oscillate, or otherwise move backwards and forwards in a never-ending fashion. A rocking chair, a hammock, a swing, the tide, our breath.
All things that move perpetually to and fro are the definition of restlessness, and yet we find these motions intrinsically comforting, as if they remind us of an experience before consciousness. The show aims to combine the explosiveness and action of circus with the human physical response to constant gentle movement.
Premiere – winter 2019/2020
