2+2+2 is a contemporary circus performance where four artists use dance and circus shamelessly as their playground. This show is about skill, absurd humor and exploring different roles in the absence of a narrative frame.
To find the way to tell a story with motion the performers have created group scenes and silent dialogues where hypnotic movement is taking turns with highly intensive atmosphere. Their movement is alternating between poetically beautiful and tragically dark where they toss themselves roughly against each other until they blend together. To find the exquisite style of their own, as an inspiration they have been breaking the roles of the traditional partnering and pair acrobatic technique.
Their unique movement articulate about little stories with allusion of equality and gender. With this show we want to shake off the preconceptions, turn constructions upside down and make an unforgettable experience for ourselves and the audience.
The performers play their roles eccentric and stylish but still respecting their own authentic way of moving.
