Cirque Mania #17: Facades

Muscular circus bodies in the mirror 

In Facades, three acrobats hold a mirror up to themselves and the audience. How do others see us, and does it match with how we really are? Atop and around a five-metre-high aluminium structure, the performers share about what it means to be a strong woman or a sensitive man, through muscular circus bodies, spectacular acrobatics and personal anecdotes. 

They use two age-old and rare circus disciplines for this purpose: Hair-hanging, in which the performer hangs in the air by their hair, and Icarian Games, partner acrobatics in which somersaults are made from the other's feet.
