LE CIRK'OBLIQUE (France) - AS A WATER DROP IN A FEMALE PURSE

 

Short scenes from life for a woman and a trapeze

 

In her own metaphysic language, an eccentric trapezist tells a story of intimacy deprivation. Caught in the trap of the absurdity of everyday life, she wittily expresses her powerlessness and anxiety. Between heaven and earth, this fragile woman with a r’n’r attitude tries to defeat her doubts with the help of the eternal motion. Originating from circus, this act is a poetic view at the characters life, narrating her memories, wishes and dreams.

“VISITORS”
CIRKUSFERA(Sr)

CIRKUSFERA (Belgrade) - VISITORS

The “Cirkusfera” group presents duo performance “Visitors”, a combination of physical theatre, object manipulation, wire walking and music, that goes one step further into the exploration of the contemporary circus.

In the “Visitors” we emphasize highly experimental approach to sound which origins on the spot through producing sounds by wired performers’ movements, as well as the props used on the set. Jumping on the moving trampoline, walking on a wire, unusual vehicles, cables, kaossilators make up sound “modules” which are recorded during the performance and upgraded into a complex final expression.

Who are the visitors? What are the Visitors? Where are the Visitors? Are they stuck in space without logic or reason, or is it just an imagination, a nightmare, is it their world or yours, or perhaps, they are in limbo? Is there a way out, will they ever reach the end, is anything revealed or it just keeps on repeating and repeating and repeating…It is a matter of our memories what once was, absent of understanding, what is, and without knowledge what will be…The Visitors are inside our heads…!!!

„TWO AND A HALF SISTERS“ – Clown burlesque
TRIKO CIRKUS TEATAR (Hr)

 TRIKO CIRKUS TEATAR (Zagreb) - DVIJE I POL SESTRE

The final part of the clown trilogy performed by TRIKO in cooperation with Lee Delong is based on the classic A.P. Chekhov play ‟The Three Sisters‟. The play is read in a manner based on a clown character, performed without the classic red nose. The director used the classical read as a motive to reexamine family relations, the overwhelming socially conditioned ties, and lust

We get acquainted with three actresses, three sisters, and three failed carriers, filled with grayness of hidden hope and lust, in a time of year when plans are forged and New Year’s resolutions made. Through a sequence of uniform, almost ritual like situations of the everyday life pushed to the edge and transcending to comedy, we see them as they recollect their past with nostalgia, while trying to grasp the brighter future… Facing the rituals and comedy of everyday life, the loneliness and the tragedy gradually surface and get expressed after the magnificent circus act of the three sisters that turns into a catastrophe and becomes its own parody. What sisters do not comprehend is the fact that the past memories prevent them from changing the present circumstances, and make them the victims of the past…

A musician is present at the stage through the duration of the play. He plays live music in some parts of the performance, while in the other he uses recorded music, at the same time playing the role of the youngest brother.

‟THE NIGHTINGALE‟ clown performance for adults
TRIKO CIRKUS TEATAR (Hr)

 TRIKO CIRKUS TEATAR (Zagreb)-SLAVUJ

This is the first all-evening clown performance for adults in Croatia. ‟The Nightingale‟ is an offspring of an, for us, unfamiliar theatre-the clown theatre. The stripped stage with a ‟stripped‟ actor. The actor acting as a clown tries to achieve the simplest and yet the hardest stage performance – of being a human. When his hither side, his pure existence is recognized by the audience, laughter is born. The Coco family and their odd guest encounter, or involve themselves in a series of possible and impossible situations unraveled by everyday life and thus attempt to aspire to their main intent, to marry their over aged daughter.

Musicians are on stage throughout the performance, following the actors play by creating a vast and rich sound specter, and thus opening the door of the gliding present moment to the audience. Everything is live, everything happens now.

UNA’S REBELLION – juggling performance
RAZBIBRIGA (Hr)

 UNA’S REBELLION – juggling performance

 

This is a costumed performance with contemporary choreography – a middle ages ballad containing elements of storytelling,
acrobalance, juggling…

 

A mystic and eccentric, Arfon the wizard has retired to the solitude of the woods and has searched for decades for the ingredients of
a magic hotchpotch for creating a new hero and a warrior whom would guide him to the golden throne. Thus is created the hero of
our story, the mischievous Una. It is not known if she is a result of failed experiments, or she was the one the wizard has searched
for, but until she was full of age, Arfon persevered following the plan of making her into a mighty leader. Una was an obedient and
hard working student, but never keen on war. She was more interested in spending time and playing with her friends from the magic
world, such as the two-beaked birds, forest dwarves, fairies and the magic water drops. She often worried because she did not
accept seriously her destiny as a warrior, so she wanted to discover if there was yet another purpose of her existence.

 

This story is intended for children between 4 and 10 years of age considering the theme customary in stories and the moral of non-
violence. It can also be interesting for youth and adults if accepted as an allegory for searching for the alternative to everyday power
struggles in the society.
