Collapse arose from the desire to make room for study, both physical and dramaturgical, that puts circus actions at the centre of a work. On stage, three juggler-acrobats are supported by a musician and a lighting tech/audio engineer. The interaction between what these five people produce brings an innovative composition to life, the fulcrum of which is the work itself and respect for each of the art forms represented.
Music is an art, juggling is an art, acrobatics are an art, and the transformation of sound and light is an art.
The figure who is usually found working in the shadows of the control room, the engineer, in Collapse becomes an actor manoeuvring fundamental components of the show’s dramaturgical script.
A search for what still hasn’t been seen; an attempt to enter a completely-unexplored world get lost and then takes place through a journey with professionals who are also friends and have shared years of work and study. In doing so, our understanding of juggling develops into an art of manipulation of objects, movement, sound and light.
