Week 46 / 2023
The New Circus group Circus By Me is back in Trondheim for another residency period at DansiT / Svartlamon in connection with their performance project Det får bære eller briste.
The purpose of the project is to tell the story of women’s physical work tasks and challenges in the 20th century through interviews with different generations of Nordic women. This is done with a performance played by six female partner acrobats and two folk musicians.
“We want to show that women’s physical strength has played a major role throughout history and at the same time convey the female artists’ personal and professional experiences. What are the strengths and weaknesses of the female body and what does it mean to be a woman and an acrobat?”
The performance will be played at Huseby School on Thursday 16th of November at 18:00. Their Facebook event is here.
Circus By Me is run by Rebecka Nord, an experienced performer in the circus world. Circus By Me offers new circus with paracrobatics as a speciality. They also hold courses in contact improvisation, modern dance, hip hop and theatre, and use culture as a tool to create a better world.
The performance will be on Huseby skole Thursday 16th of November, 18:00. See the Facebook event here.
