What must once have been a magnificent tent lies desolately on the ground. With a diameter of 16 metres, it invites you to sit down and relax. Together with the audience and bystanders, the structure is straightened out and a performance unfolds. Cirkelgewelf is made for aerial acrobatics, climbing and rope techniques and carries some well kept secrets. Get ready for a performance in a structure as high as 9 metres.
Cirkelgewelf is not only an installation but also offers a learning path to aspiring circus artists. As of December 2020, a group of young acrobats from Ell Circo d'Ell Fuego were working on further exploring the possibilities of the Cirkelgewelf and trying out new techniques. At the Circolo Festival (NL), co-producer of the project, fourth-year students of circus school Acapa in Tilburg were given the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in presence of a wide audience. They will also help to produce the show at the MAD Festival.
Get ready for a performance in a construction of no less than 9 metres high!
