Kaleiding will be the debut of the contemporary circus company Lily&Janick. The show will be a play between light, reflections and new perspectives onto partner acrobatics. With a long mirror that lays on the floor, images are getting created that hypnotize – like watching an everyday life situation through a kaleidoscope. This distorted reality invites into a decelerated world where up is down and down is up. Kaleiding will be a movement based show working on the border between dance and circus. The movement research is specific to the confined space of the mirror (3m x 6m). The reflective surface invites for slides and images that draw the focus downwards into the extended stage space that the audience observes from two tribunes framing the mirror on each side. This intimate setting creates a strong bond between the audience and performers who are so close that they could touch each other.

2022 Kaleiding was in the laboratory phase. Now we are thrilled to start the creation phase in 2023. We aim to premier in the autumn/winter 2023. For bookings please contact us.
