A transdisciplinary experience – interactive sound installations, interactive visual arts, contemporary circus and dance merge into a spiritual and ritual journey.
Picaderø is an encounter with the origin, a fusion of traditional and contemporary languages as well as a reflective diary of their constant adaptation and development over time. It depicts the constant struggle between the wild essence and the domesticated animal, the search for balance in instability. It is the acceptance of boundaries in order to find freedom.
Picaderø features a mobile stage, inspired by the shape and movement of a spinning top, which is transformed into a musical instrument while the sound artist and performers interact. To learn more about the show and how it was made check out our blog.
The performance spaces may include multipurpose performance halls, alternative spaces, abandoned factories, industrial warehouses, museum spaces, or theatres where the audience can be either in a semicircle, or frontal view.
Contemporary circus show, duration: 70 minutes.
