Not one without the other.
‘EXIT’ is an exciting, impressive and physical circus and dance performance where movement, partner acrobatics and balance board merge. Choreographer Piet Van Dycke invited four circus artists, each specialized in a different discipline (bascule, belts, trapeze and acro-dance). Four individual disciplines in one collective language.
‘EXIT’ shows the meeting of four individuals walking one collective path. In a big, impressive installation with a revolving wall and floating doors, they move in and through space. They propel each other, walk, collide, climb, carry, balance and transform. They arrive and depart, meet and leave, appear and disappear. As people, we are always on the go, but what if you can never arrive home anywhere? And what about the tension between the individual and the group? In their quest for independence, they need each other more than ever. They balance each other out, but also bring each other out of balance. A flirt with risk.
“For the jury, EXIT was the most exciting circus performance to be seen in Flanders last season. In it, wonder reigns supreme, but never becomes provisional.” — #jury23
