For the second edition of Great Catch - a fresh taste of circus, the Circuscoalitie selected three short pieces by a new generation of circus artists. They show their special talent in funny, moving and personal theater performances.
Luuk Brantjes has specialized in the possibilities of the teeterboard. His piece LONE is an ode to solitude, a plea for its tranquility and beauty. Tête-bêche (Marieke Thijssen, David Mupanda and Wilko Schütz) combine spectacular acrobatics in 3+1 with a diabolo as the fourth player. Harvey Cobb won the BNG Bank Circus Prize in 2022 with his idiosyncratic mix of comedy, improvisation and juggling. Harvey performs part of his first solo Pink Boots and An Alcoholic Sock Puppet. Catch it if you can!
