KORROL i.c.w. Aifoon 

After the successful shows Plock! and murmur, Grensgeval is creating KORROL, a new circus performance for everyone aged four and above. KORROL will be the final part of the trilogy about art and creation.


In KORROL, an acrobatic architect composes space with kilos of concrete. Jonas builds towers, the towers become a city, a desolate plain, a human being. But every time he tries to lay the last brick, his work proves unfinished. Jonas balances precariously on wobbly towers, jumps on his hands from stone to stone. But no matter what he tries, everything remains so stiff and still. Until he puts on the concrete: donning heavy shoes, he orchestrates a small ballet, in a duet with a massive ball he skims past his audience. He (re)builds up his whole body. Even when he almost collapses under the weight, Jonas just finds the freedom for a duet between toe and little finger. 

When Jonas places his concrete head in the hands of the audience, they become co-bearers of his creation. In a world of travelling and tangible sound, they remould the world together. Result: dazzling new circus sound theatre in which the audience is immersed. With drumming blocks, a petrified acrobat and dancing concrete.
