Cul de Sac
Cul De Sac is an absurd and comic circus/dance/theatre duet, featuring world-class performers of Chinese pole and Juggling.
The project was born out of the desire and intense necessity to create circus performance with a strong intimate language and personality.
Cul de Sac aims to innovate, choreographically and conceptually, by mixing different art forms, exploring through a subconscious and visceral approach and creating a surreal and touching atmosphere on stage. The show explores partner working dynamics and the resulting confrontations arising from individual desires, touching as well on bigger topics such as gender politics, power struggles and social taboos.
Performed with strong physical skills and sharp humour, Cul de Sac is circus for grown ups. Circus with personality; where the absurd has its own place.
