For the new production iRRooTTaa (creation Jan 2024-Sept 2024) Circus Katoen and Grensgeval are looking for two physical performers (x/v/m) with a background in object manipulation, acrobatics and/or dance.
iRRooTTaa is an invitation to stop trying to keep all balls in the air. It will be an ode to the drop. Because sometimes falling is full of new possibilities.
Failure is permitted. Changing the rules, too. Who knows: perhaps performing life becomes much more fun if we can let things slip between our fingers every now and then.
iRRooTTaa will be an auditive and visual circus performance for every one of four years and up who sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the options.
Who are we?
Grensgeval is a Flemish company (CircusNext nominee 18/19) that creates interdisciplinary performances that take seriously the child in the adult and the adult in the child. It is led by directors Hanne Vandersteene and Mahlu Mertens. More info: www.grensgeval.eu
Circus Katoen is a Flemish circus company (CircusNext laureate 15/16) that consists of circus artists Sophie van der Vuurst de Vries and Willem Balduyck. Inspired by their ecological mindset they create physical performances with simple objects. More info: www.circuskatoen.com
