Carrying My Father
four acrobats share the stage with their fathers
Carrying my father is a physical encounter between generations.
Four circus artists share the stage with their fathers in an acrobatic piece about carrying and being carried. About holding on and letting go.
About strength and rivalry. These eight bodies are not equally strong, but they are equally powerful in their individuality and interaction.
Together they discover the challenges of growing older and the richness of working together. The bonds between father and son.
Key to the production is the realization that just as the father carried the son, one day the son will carry the father.
