Man, matter and creation!
Merging his acrobatic body into 500 kg’s of clay, Quim Girón challenges the borders between man and matter. Mutually shaping and challenging each other’s physicality, grotesque and unexpected creatures arise and fall. You are constantly on the edge of your chair trying to see what is next.
Accompanying him on stage are composer/musician Joan Cot Ros and light designer Joana Serra; executing a highly elaborated score of sound and light.
Quim Girón Figuerola is the founder and artistic director of Animal Religion. His work focuses on the themes of animality, gender, surreal humour and the research for new expressions with circus.
Open On Stage Workshop after Fang (app. 50 min.)
After the performance, a workshop is held, where the audience get invited to the stage to experiment with the clay alongside the artists!
Here you will get the chance to play – and will be guided using different dynamics to experiment within the boundaries of circus making.
The imagination of the participants is challenged and collectively a performance is created. The workshop will be accompanied by live lights and music that will improvise and engage with the participants as well.
