Performance of debasement.
On stage three performers, a juggler, an acrobat and a performance artist creates a continuity of absurd scenes that follow one another as artists question and experiments their limits, ones they impose to themselves and equally the ones imposed by others. Until where we can go without hurting ourselves?
Creating a raw performance with a mixture of black humour and oddness. Taival intorregates this fragile separation that live inside of us all, between an absolute freedom that inspires us and independency that gives essence of being human. Linked with manipulative games and domination these three artists try to let go of it in order to find a refuge to their frustrations.
In this debasement of pain and limits aren’t there a final source of pleasure ? If this constraint suffered, imposed Individual isn’t free anymore? The performance explores these questions through strong aesthetic prism. A sublimation of pain on stage is assumed like a part of an answer to the the issues raised.
Isn’t pain a bit poetic as beauty? Can we laugh at painful and hurtful things ?
In this new creation Nuua company continues it’s sensible experimentations on body and matter. A performance is like an imaginary trip into absurd and irony. Performance feels real and it’s stage art fantasy stripping style brings it towards more personal levels. Not only to it’s artists but for it’s audi- ence as the performance opens up in a little difference ways.
For this manipulation of the other, in the control of one’s own body, is it not ultimately oneself that one tries to protect? Freely mixing different performing art forms, Taival is versatile, rough and corporal work of contemporary circus.
