Collapse

A collapse is a part of life, an experience that destroys, shatters and crushes. A collapse may harden or strengthen us, or just routinely recur without us even realising it is happening. There’s no progress without collapses, no expansion of limits, no way to move forward. We are interested in the essence of a collapse, what it does to an individual and what it does to an entire society. Will society turn its back on those who have collapsed? Will society take advantage of someone’s collapse or offer a helping hand? 

“Once again, Losers Cirque Company is pushing the limits of the human body and the law of gravity with playfulness, elegance and grace of movement. This time, they charm the audience with a poetic tour of the collapses, which are everyone’s faithful companions through life from childhood play onwards. The show offers an innovative interpretation of the collapse as a paradoxical phenomenon, one that pushes us down while lifting us up, slows us down while pushing us forward, and hurts us while making us stronger. I also applaud the sensitive and spot-on live musical and vocal accompaniment which adds power to the overall impression.” – Helena Grégrová, I-DIVADLO

Audience: adult, children 6+
