2020 – Rapid Eye // W/HOLE (physical theatre // new circus)
A show about all the holes in the whole world.
Holes are frightening and holes are fascinating. Holes represent possibilities and some holes are completely impossible to grasp. There are so many holes that we can never hope to get to the bottom of them all.
W/hole follows jugglers Samuel Gustavsson and Petter Wadsten in their shared fascination with all of the holes that surround them. In the end, we human beings are no more than the collection of matter around the hole which, in our own singular ways, we leave behind in the world when we die.
A Co-production with Aaben Dans ‘W / hole’ combines spectacular and visual qualities with the experience of two new circus artists of exceptional class.” – Teateravisen.dk
Rapid Eye was founded in 2010, and has since then managed to establish itself with a unique profile in contemporary performing arts. The company creates performances in the borderland between modern circus, dance and visual theatre. It reflects a distinct Nordic style of minimalist elegance. The performances are characterized by a love of human kind and their wondering in the world, as well as their playful exploration of reality. Rapid Eye questions the big and small things in life. The relation between you, me, life, and the universe are put under the microscope. Humorous poetry, philosophical magic, artistic precision and timing, as well as charming personalities on stage constitute the fascinating uniqueness of Rapid Eye’s performances.
