Cirkus Cirkör SE


Man versus Weather

Eight people crash. Eight people, in the middle of the world, dreaming the ancient dream to manoeuver in and finally conquer the sky. The performance Under embodies the human need to constantly defy gravity and the continuing conflict between man and weather. It is about the wish to tame the untamable.

”In creating Under, I've taken the leap off solid ground. I've thrown myself from airplanes, felt the fragrance of clouds and found myself spellbound by the surface beneath me getting closer and closer. I've constructed special lifting platforms and soundlessly glided above the ground in a hot air-balloon. With these new perspectives, I'm approaching a reality where everything is too big, to heavy and too hard. The intensity has been increased. We do everything to the max.”

Olle Strandberg

Under is the final work in Olle Strandberg's Under trilogy. Olle has previously explored the themes of what happens when you crash and of having to adapt to a new life in Undermän (2010) and Underart (2014), two Cirkus Cirkör productions that have toured the world.

Under is a co-production of Cirkus Cirkör and Västmanlands Teater.

The show is presented under the patronage of the Ambassador of Sweden to the Czech Republic, Viktoria Li.
