KOMPANI GIRAFF : TVÄRSLÖJD
In Tvärslöjd you find two circus performers doing impossible magic tricks and choreographed experiments that invite the audience to laugh and get surprised.
Two circus performers create living sculptures from common objects and their own bodies. Through acrobatics and magic, they find moments of balance. With elegant movements they create installations where the different kind of elements have to interact, keeping the picture from falling apart.
In the performance of Tvärslöjd the story is not an ordinary story but is open for the children’s interpretation and imagination. Two characters are creating balancing games with old-fashioned everyday objects. They surprise themselves to find various uses of the tools on stage. Where are they? Maybe inside a giant paint bucket? Or in a magical forest? The performance is about how imagination gives us an opportunity to go from nothing to something, from nowhere to anywhere. To encourage children to learn new things - things they did not know that you could possibly learn.
Kompani Giraff is a Stockholm-based contemporary circus company driven by the passion of movement, poetry and magic. The company consists of director Viktoria Dalborg, magician Axel Adlercreutz and designer Sus Soddu.
