Circular Vertigo
Overhead Project

  • Dance

Overhead Project has been developing pieces on the border of contemporary dance, circus and performance since 2008. The ensemble always opens up new perspectives-often combined with physical risk. This is also the case in the new production “Circular Vertigo”. The starting point is the geometric shape of the circle: a 100-kilo gymnastics apparatus (pommel horse) suspended from the ceiling and the dancer Mijin Kim meet in it. With delicate virtuosity, man and object negotiate their relationship between tender rapprochement, dangerous tumbling and triumphant flights of fancy.

Funded within the framework of the Alliance of International Production Houses by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media and supported by the Cultural Foundation of the Free State of Saxony. This measure is co-financed by tax funds on the basis of the budget passed by the Saxon State Parliament.
