Cie Nuua: Taival
Performance of debasement. On stage three performers, a juggler, an acrobat and a performance artist create a continuity of absurd scenes that follow one another as artists question and experiment their limits, ones they impose to themselves and equally the ones imposed by others. Until where we can go without hurting ourselves?
Taival invites it’s audience to a trip throughout absurd happenings, changing scene images, where multitalented circus artists are ignoring the traditional and mixing the performing arts styles towards more personal contemporary circus performance.
Nuua was founded by Finnish circus artist Olli Vuorinen and Brazilian artist Luis Sartori do Vale in 2012 in Finland as company for visual theater and contemporary circus performances. Nuua is one of Finland’s next generation companies in the field of contemporary circus. In a short time Nuua has taken it’s place in the international scene of performing arts. Nuua’s first performance ”Lento” (2013) has reached over 35 000 spectators in 10 different countries.
Meet the artists after the performance on Sat 13th May.
