About the performance

The transdisciplinary circus performance DAR unpacks the primal emotion of fear in all its subtleties. Set in a dystopian landscape where all conforming norms are suspended – between adults & children, human & technology, structured performance & free play – the show makes one reflect and palpably experience how we deal with fear in our daily lives. Inhabited by three adults, three children and a military drone, the desolate terrain shape shifts continually: oscillating between becoming a no man’s land, a danger zone, a playground and a haven. Free Play & Parkour (an athletic-circus practice) aptly forms the underlying vocabulary of this performance, symbolically suggesting not only freedom from restriction but also as a proposed antidote to liberate oneself from fear. 

Fear of freedom, freedom to fear.
