When there is nothing
“Meander” describes the ongoing process of transformation, from the subtlety of small shifts to the intensity of radical changes.
How do we experience the urge for something new and when do we feel the need for what is familiar?
On stage, six circus and dance creators weave a visual tapestry of movement and sound. With intertwined bodies, they question their individuality. Sliding and climbing over and under each other, they seek height in a quest for support. They illuminate the frictions and ruptures between them as celebrations of resilience and the potentially unexpected beauty of imperfection.
Our view of the world is constantly changing through how we interact with our environment and each other. By breaking away from traditional power relations, Meander creates a space where each moment can bring a new discovery, a new question, or a new insight. Less control, more space to unfold.
We don’t push towards a specific goal or direction, but trust that by moving and engaging we are already going the right way -with all the necessary detours. In Meander, the viewer is invited to embrace ongoing change, to feel how the interpretation of the past continuously evolves, depending on how we experience the here and now.
Meander is an ode to the process, and invites for surprises of playful interaction and self-reflection.
