Four acrobats are facing the outcome of the confrontation. At times they play against one another, at times they choose to play together. Their choices will demand sacrifices at the account of their honour. They are chasing goals and accepting defeats.
Once again, like countless times before, person’s gaze on you. In your mind echoes the thought: how the challenge will turn out this time? Observe. Anticipate. React. Innumerably, but every time different, every time anew. You observe yourself by carrying out the challenge, and while truth never slips through your fingers you get to know yourself over again. Thoughts are poking you to crumble your attendance, to make you lose the sense of meaningful matters. Once more with a profound will you build castles in the sky, and once more they demolish before you. And then again, like countless times before you gaze into your own eyes.
After a successful collaboration in 2019, Cirkusfera, Cirkorama and Un loup pour l’homme have chosen to build this project to give encouragement to artists of Serbia and Croatia to continue stepping on the path of professional circus careers. They have rather chosen to use the artistic circumstances to their advantage, and not to succumb to its deficits. By embracing the cultural environment they devoted themselves to the creative process.
