1 October 2023 / 6:30 p.m. / The Room/s (Mala scena)
Cirkus Kolektiv, as part of the annual residency program, presents a work-in-progress presentation of creation TIRA by the international company La Barque Acide.
ARTISTS ABOUT THEIR CREATION TIRA:
Tira is a game about the curiosity of establishing new limits in your own world. It is drawing limits for the pleasure of breaking them.
Tira is sincerity, it is the complicity of the looks.
Tira is transformation, a string becomes everything: the kiss of the grandmother you hated so much when you were little, the caress of someone who is no longer there, the realisation that you are not the woman they expected you to be, but in the end it’s not so bad…
