About rigging

Rigging is an ancient old circus practice of attaching and hangning things or people, usually by means of cords and pulley systems. A team of circus performers, thinkers and playwrighters (Vincent Foquet, Francesca Hyde, Camille Paycha, Saar Rombout, John-Paul Zaccarini and Elena Zanzu) ask pertinent questions about care, violence, activity, pain, pleasure, support, … and permission by things attaching /people to other things/people.
