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.

Tall Tales Company tells big stories on a human scale. About the impact we have on the world, and on each other. Circus is their language. An exciting language that evokes emotions and captures the imagination. A language that everyone understands, but hardly anyone speaks. Tall Tales creates a circus of life.
