On the bench

a dance acrobatic intermezzo Cikaros


Teater Kimone


Two female circus artists in a dance acrobatic duet on a bench in the urban space. Surprising movements and impressive balances, feminine and powerful, straightforward and completely abstract.

Elegantly dressed and to the sound of classical piano music, they stand, sit, lie down, lift, dance, jump, roll, carry, support, bend, swirl and stretch, with and towards each other, playing curiously with the possibilities of the bench.

You sit. You look. You wait. You are. You feel trapped, feel free, arrive too early, arrive too late, see the others, see yourself. ‘On the bench’ examines in balancing and body-bending movements what can occur in the cracks and in-betweens of life.
