Tjaž Juvan’s research about the boundary between music and circus performance goes beyond a usual relationship between these two arts (sound as background to a performance or circus as an addition to the music). This is a holistic mixture of identities, approaches, and philosophies of the two worlds – the world of musicians and the world of a circus artists, in which the aspects of both coexist in one performer. The perfect harmony of these two art forms is, naturally, impossible, but the very flaws and the disruption of harmony develop an interaction between the performer and the sound, creating a new genre in which all the classifications become irrelevant, and the topics he is trying to convey to the public are brought into focus.
The show is part of the European Researchers’ Night 2022 program.
