The concrete cuts a rug in this vibrant circus performance

In KORROL, an acrobatic architect composes the space with pounds of solid concrete. Jonas builds towers, and in turn, the towers turn into a city, or a deserted plain, or even a person. Anytime he tries to lay the last stone, his work appears to be unfinished.

Jonas balances precariously on shaky towers, jumps on his hands from stone to stone. No matter what he tries, everything remains stiff and silent. That’s until he puts on the concrete like a really heavy piece of apparel: running on very heavy shoes, he orchestrates a small ballet, in a duet with a massive ball he narrowly misses his audience. He rebuilds his entire body, and even when he almost collapses under the impressive weight, Jonas still finds the freedom for a duet between pinky toe and little finger.

When Jonas places his concrete head in the hands of the audience, they become co-bearers of his creation. In a world of traveling and tangible sound, they renovate the world together. Result: a vibrant new circus sound theatre where the audience stands right in the middle. With drumming blocks, a petrified acrobat and pure concrete cutting a rug with a repertoire of moves.
