DOCH’s students shake the circus in My Own Bodies

By on October 26, 2016

In My Own Bodies – Shaking the Circus DOCHs circus students shake the ground in a performance that mixes circus, dance and performance art in a joint trembling experience. The performance is based on a concept by Tove Sahlin who is also directing the show.

Shake is the smallest common denominator for all bodies – old, new born, ill, strong, safe and scared. People describe traumatic events in their lives as being shaky. We all shake in moments of fever, strong emotions and sexual pleasure. One can also shake it on the dance floor, shake off uncomfortable experiences and shake up a room with one’s presence.

In her solo piece My Own Bodies Tove shakes persistently for 45 minutes transforming her body in several stages and conditions. In Shaking the Circus, she takes the concept to the students of the Bachelor Programme in Circus in an intent to shake the performers and the virtuosity of the circus art! The audience will also be subject to a physical sensation of shake, not only through the performers, but also by means of sound, light and space.

Teeterboard, juggling, aerial acrobatics, tight wire, chinese pole and other spectacular circus feats are brought to the audience with an innovative and contemporary approach that is unique to the circus education at DOCH. My Own Bodies – Shaking the Circus is a performance and an experiment where circus students of high artistic and technical level explore how their shaking bodies can shake the circus.
