China Series


Shortlisted 2020-2021


CHINA SERIES is an interdisciplinary project, where circus, dance, contemporary performance and visual arts meet. It is based on the diabolo as an object and circus apparatus. The interest lies in the deconstruction and reconstruction of this classical object. Through its fragility, the ceramic used to manufacture the diabolos stresses the ephemeral nature of the performance and the performing body.

CHINA SERIES consists of 7 parts, performances and installations that stand for themselves but relate and refer to each other in content as well as form.
