PLAY - a series of guest performances
Season: 2. – 6. December 2020
(The performance contains spoken word material in German) Warm-hearted, funny, smart, and accessible: Experience RAVEN, a powerful and refreshingly different piece of contemporary circus about motherhood.
Bird metaphors lie at the centre of RAVEN and illustrate the different challenges motherhood presents. One moment, the performers lovingly mother their children like hens and the rhythms of their daily movements turn into skilful satirical choreographies. In the next moment, the memories of their own strength as successful artists turn them into eagles, soaring strong and free through the air. With disarming directness and the unmistakable personality of the fearless circus moms, the performers bring a moving show to the stage, which challenges the status quo and invites us to question our preconceived notions of working mothers, women, and circus performers.
Warm-hearted, funny, smart, and accessible: Experience RAVEN, a powerful and refreshingly different piece of contemporary circus about motherhood.
"Beautiful and spectacular... Among many other glorious qualities, Ravenis particularly striking for the pitch-perfect ease with which it combines language and movement, as if the words acted as cues leading to soaring passages of movement that always add hugely to the meaning of the piece."
"An excellent hour of circus, physical theatre, and dance digging into what the performers gave up, and what they refuse to let go of."
"Heroes. Rock'n' Roll goddesses."
