Under is the final part of Olle Strandberg’s Under trilogy, with the previous performances being Undermän and Underart. Its point of departure is the search for creative strategies at a time when uncertainty is the only constant and when outer obstacles and limitations complicate things and bring your actions to a head. In a landscape that bears witness to a hot air balloon crash, the wild elements, storms and heavens rage. In their encounter with the vicissitudes of the weather, acrobatics, aerial acrobatics and song are taken out of their traditional contexts.
Cirkus Cirkör was founded by Tilde Björfors in 1995 with the vision to change the world through contemporary circus and to establish the art form in Sweden. Today Cirkör tours the world with their performances and has also created a platform for artistic training, research and development, called Cirkör LAB. Cirkus Cirkör offers residencies and support for the contemporary circus community, runs a high school circus program and reaches around 30 000 persons per year with its circus pedagogical programs and community work.
A co-production with Västmanlands Teater, where the premiere will take place 14th September 2017. With the support of Swedish Arts Council (Statens Kulturråd), Stockholm Region (Stockholms Läns Landsting), City of Stockholm, City of Botkyrka.
