Circular Vertigo

Overhead Project

Tanz 2022/23

Overhead Project has been developing pieces on the border of contemporary dance, circus and performance since 2008. The ensemble always opens up new perspectives-often combined with physical risk. This is also the case in the new production “Circular Vertigo”. The starting point is the geometric shape of the circle: a 100-kilo gymnastics apparatus (pommel horse) suspended from the ceiling and the dancer Mijin Kim meet in it. With delicate virtuosity, man and object negotiate their relationship between tender rapprochement, dangerous tumbling and triumphant flights of fancy.
