DET FÅR BÄRA ELLER BRISTA An acrobatic performance telling the story of women’s strength
With offspring of their own, six female partner acrobats explore the limits between lifting and collapsing. Weight and lightness. Strength and fragility. Joy and sorrow.
Across time, women have carried children, potato sacks, pots, water and milk jugs, strollers into the car and up stairs, groceries from the store, firewood, laundry ... and more children.
Det får bära eller brista is a performance that illustrates women’s history with acrobatics and contemporary folk music. On stage, human pyramids and impressive acrobatic choreographs are built in new circus’ innovative spirit.
