With children of their own, six female acrobats explore the limits between lifting and collapsing. Weight and lightness. Strength and fragility. Joy and sorrow.
Across time, women have carried children, potato sacks, pots, water and milk jugs, strollers into the car and up stairs, groceries from the store, firewood, laundry … and more children.
Det får bära eller brista is a performance that illustrates the history of women through acrobatics and contemporary folk music. On stage, human pyramids and impressive acrobatic choreographies are created in the innovative spirit of new circus.
Duration: 1 hour
The performance is for grown-ups, but children (from 9 years), accompanied by adults, are of course welcome.
