Engel & Sujets - Spring Forward 2019 *OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Two performers, a circus acrobat and a dancer, melt together in a physical dialogue through a constant exchange of weight, momentum and direction. The result is Engel, a gravity-defying duet that brings surreal and chimeric images to stage.

Marta Alstadsæter and Kim-Jomi Fischer invite you to wonder where thoughts come from and to embrace the many sides of being human.

Engel & Sujets - Spring Forward 2019 *OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Sujets is a sculptural and hypnotic exploration of human bodies and their interactions. On stage, five naked performers are thrown in the middle of a collective experience oscillating between brutality and softness. Sujets invites you to witness a landscape of flesh and desire and to question your own senses.
