On an ecologically devastated planet, all theatres have been abandoned. Only a flying circus preserves bold dreams of long-gone humans within its carnivalesque archive.
This “Aerocircus” evokes the image of a being without fixed limits that have to be constantly sounded out and explored anew. In a double-floored circus ring, Angela Winkler, a tomorrow no longer populated by humans is envisioned with the intention of influencing the lost future. Gradually, the circus artists – acrobats and tightrope walkers, clowns and mimes – begin to see our overheated planet as an artistic challenge and to reconcile themselves with the ruined planetary habitat.
Played by actors of RambaZamba Theater, the circus artists perform their acrobatic craft inside a series of installations by the internationally celebrated visual artist Tomás Saraceno. His spatial designs lend astonishing evidence and visibility to the web of life that binds both the human and the non-human residents of our planet.
