Cirque Mania #18: Questions to the Endless

Artist Laurence Felber
Duration 45 min
Part of Cirque Mania

Bring your questions and leave them unanswered

Questions to the Endless begins with an invitation for the audience to shred their own question. Paper shredders and writing stations are installed at the entrance to the stage area and the rattling sound of the paper shredder accompanies the audience to their seats. 

The piece takes place between a woman on the trapeze, her alter ego in the form of a loudspeaker and the audience and their own questions. A rap battle, various movement languages on the trapeze, helium balloons and a set filled with question marks result in a multi-layered performance with trapeze, language and stage design. 

The question mark as a universal sign becomes a ‘pattern’ through duplication and it questions why we always want to ask and know. Questions to the Endless creates a stream of questions that opens up depths, looks into them, invites us to walk through the world with a smile and take our alter ego by the hand once again. 

Laurence Felber lives and works as a circus artist, curator and graphic designer in Basel (CH). 

In 2020, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the Academy of Circus and Performance Art in Tilburg (NL) with a specialisation in static trapeze. In 2020 she was awarded with the Keep an Eye Award for the project Questions to the Endless and with the solo work A Louder Silence with the BNG Circus Prijs. In 2020, together with Nina Wey, she founded the trapeze duo FelberWey and is part of the collective Compagnie Trottvoir, active in Switzerland, since 2016. From 2012 to 2015 she studied Visual Communication at the University of the Arts in Bern (CH) and is working as a graphic designer on a project basis since then. Since 2021 she is part of the collective Station Circus, a venue for contemporary circus art in Basel.
