H O M A N
Vincent Bruyninckx & Vejde Grind
H O M A N - A reference to human? A reference to home? To men? Or perhaps a suggestion for neither really home nor quite human. Not quite man. Not quite what you think it is. Not quite what you thought to have recognised. Almost, but not quite.
When you close your eyes, an image of the physical still remains on the retina. The light merges with the dark and the imaginary with the physical. Perhaps it is in that present moment where the performance takes place.
TWO BODIES will occupy the stage:
Vejde Grind, 1.90m, 80kg, Swedish cave-man body type.
Vincent Bruyninckx, 1.70m, 60kg, Belgian french fry body type.
They invite the audience on an intimate, both serious and humorous trip, in the search for the present.
With this show, Vincent & Vejde are shortlisted for CircusNext 2020 - 2021, which is a European circus label: the creators selected by a European jury stand out for their singularity and creativity.
