About the performance

Organiek Mechaniek is a street performance in which Jakobe and Josse play with freedom, balance and a bicycle. They mainly found inspiration in the work of Panamarenko, with whom they share a fascination with flying, energy and connection. Alexander Calder’s fragile, colorful mobiles were also inspiring for the duo.
