Tickled Pink


Tickled Pink is a performance in which six acrobats create a universe of euphoria and spectacle. You are drawn into the warmth and joy through the collectivity of the group and the pleasure of movement inherent to circus. A sense of euphoria and a love for life but also - for those who want it - a reflection on our contemporary society of spectacle reverberates after. This contemporary performance is an ode to the spectacle of the circus in today's context.


Warning: This show makes you feel tickled pink!

Directed by Margot Jansens; Maria Madeira, Manon Verplancke, Petra Steindl, Josse De Broeck, Hendrik Van Maele and Felix Zech pose the following questions:

How can the spectacular as an artistic and impactful method be re-appropriated by circus (acrobatics)?
What is spectacular?
What is euphoria?
How do we share feeling with the audience?
What can re-appropriated spectacular acrobatics create in the spectator?
How can we guide this impact toward a connecting, euphoric experience?
ut also; Is there a downside to this re-evaluation of the spectacular - the hyper sexualization of the performative body, the fetishization of skill, the lapse into mere entertainment...?
