A circus. diptych by Luuk Brantjes and Kolja Huneck
2 circus artists, 2 handwritings, 1 artistic vision. A symbiotic creation process leading into two circus pieces that are intertwined in their core. In this project Kolja Huneck and Luuk Brantjes are searching for a performative concept in which two solo pieces melt into one performance diptych.
Both artists collectively research and create their pieces in shared residencies and unite their interests and experiences with Magie Nouvelle. Their approach to the circus disciplines object manipulation and teeterboard, will get refined in the process and will be used as language. The visual images, atmospheres and circus vocabulary link two performance fragments into a mycorrhiza network.
Thematically the pieces are inspired by and based on the separation between nature
and humans. The powerlessness towards nature and its global complexity serve as starting points for their research.
Next to the two pieces, a mobile performance space will be developed that makes the diptych a unique immersive audience experience. A custom space that is molded by the world of the performance, shooting root in every new location.
