You're allowed to feel human
Three elements: two acrobats that balance on a Chinese pole and oxygen, the invisible substance that's in our air, but is largely absent in the body of circusmaker and acrobat Jesse Huygh. From the age of twelve he is diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, but that doesn't stop him from a career in contemporary circus.
In Á 2 metres, Jesse – with the help of performer Rocio Garotte – shows us that we shouldn't follow our fears, but our dreams. A performance that meditates on the fragility of life, but also the power of hope. Getting to know yourself, helping each other out, learning to find the strength to grow into the real you: all themes that are touched upon with the utmost sincerity in Á 2 metres. A moving show full of big-hearted moments, that allows humans to feel human.
"Oxygen is scarce in circus creator Jesse Huygh's body due to cystic fibrosis, a condition he has been battling since childhood. However, it is this very condition that propels him forward in his career in contemporary circus, and proves that dreams can triumph over fears. Prepare to be moved by the heartwarming moments that remind us all of our shared humanity."
— Mirjam Zwanenburg, Programmeur Cirque Mania
