In this Corona era, Fonds Podiumkunsten encourages theater makers to keep working and therefor has set up the fund Balkonscenes.
Carina Klingsell, the Swedish circus artist who performs in Ik via de ander, requested support for a co-production with Theater Babel Rotterdam: Moving Portraits. And her application was honored! Rehearsals start next week.
Carina explains how she will work:
“I will make two short movement duets, with two performers from Theater Babel, Milton and Simone, and two guest actors, two circus artists. They will be personal portraits, which we develop together in the rehearsals. We will work from research questions such as: what are you good at? What do you feel comfortable in? It is a research on bodies, using circus techniques.
I am very excited about this project. For me it is an opportunity to develop myself further as a director and in working inclusive. Thanks to Ik via de ander, I have experienced what it is like to be part of an inclusive cast, with Moving Portraits I can develop myself further as an inclusive maker. “
