Carrying my father
Eight adult men, four sons and their fathers, carry each other. Their eight bodies may not be equally strong, but they are equally powerful in their uniqueness and interaction with each other. This physical, acrobatic performance is centred around carrying and being carried, the ageing body and the reversal of care responsibilities between the generations, and the effect of time on our body and relationships. With a mixed cast of professionals and amateur performers,
THERE THERE Company is resident in Cas-co. Cas-co provides visual artists, theatre producers and performers with space for artistic practices and experiments. To this end, Cas-co develops affordable and high-quality workshops and actively creates project and presentation opportunities.
Since 2021, the new circus workshop CIRKLABO has supported circus artists in their artistic development.
After nearly a year, over 20 circus troupes have made use of the site. During Winter Circus 2021, we therefore present an extra dose of circus from our own circus workshop. The various circus troupes are all connected to Leuven one way or another, their creations have been partly created in Leuven and are supported or coproduced by CIRKLABO.
