Partner acrobatic trio Knot on Hands creates work from pure physical research. Three athletic bodies, three movements and dazzling possibilities. Working towards those gems, a principle of a movement bursting with potential. It is like the chocolate bonbon that does not reveal its filling, the carefully wrapped gift whose shape cannot be guessed, that plot-driven story that has no end.

CONCRETE works from three families of movement: the organic chapter Roll unravels a sense of continuity and evolution where one movement flows seamlessly into another. It resonate with the changing nature of life. The rhythmic and dynamic chapter Weave is a visual spectacle where three bodies intertwine to create living images, harmonious and expressive. The final chapter Stay defies the laws of gravity and forges an unbreakable bond between the acrobats and the wall, tilting the perspective. With this trilogy, they set a mechanism in motion time and again, that is essentially infinite.
