The Belgian circus company Grensgeval came by in our studio to talk about their newest creation ‘KORROL’. In ‘KORROL’, an acrobatic architect composes space with kilos of concrete. He builds towers, the towers become a city, a desolate plain, a human being. But every time he tries to lay the last brick, his work proves unfinished. Until he puts on the concrete: donning heavy shoes, he orchestrates a small ballet, in a duet with a massive ball he skims past his audience. He (re)builds up his whole body. Even when he almost collapses under the weight, the architect just finds the freedom for a duet between toe and little finger. During their residency at Dommelhof, we invited a class from a local primary school for a first try-out. Even though we had a power break and the performance had to play in daylight and without music, the very first audience of ‘KORROL’ was already wildly enthusiastic. ‘KORROL’ is supported by Circuswerkplaats Dommelhof & C-TAKT.
