The Juggling Concert project deals with the world of the “millennial” generation and critically places it in the context of the whole socio-cultural and political climate. Feelings of resignation and depression are mixed with positive and prophetical messages about The Better Future.
In the current age, the Juggling Concert is one of the most useful and most valuable of products made on our Earth, a true, veritably ours, fruit of the Motherland, lovely and bright.
Juggling concert is a juggling show with our own original music and lyrics.
It formally relates to the structure and performance of teenage singing groups or bands and transposes them into the framework of a circus or juggling show. However, this girl/boyband has missed their chance for fame.
Mismo Nismo (eng. WeAre WeAren’t) is a new alt-art circus collective based in Slovenia. They are pessimists who want to embrace the uncertainty of the future through experiences of the present. Their aesthetic is raw, experimental and full of flaws. To them Form is an experiment and the Idea is everything.
