Tipping PointBalancing in a Time of Change

Performance type: 
1 h 55 min incl. interval

​On a tightrope with Cirkus Cirkör.

What does it take to keep the balance when what seems stable suddenly collapses? Meet five circus artists and a musician in a raw world built of trusses, metal pipes and wires. Through acrobatics, aerial acrobatics, hair hanging and contortionism, they move with, against and despite the structures.  

Tipping Point – Balancing in a Time of Change is a circus show about structures – our human structures and what holds our societies and democracies together.  

In a tensegrity structure, the form is held together by tension, balance and forces that pull in different directions. The slightest change can cause the entire building to fall. What happens when the most fundamental collapses? Who gets trapped, and who finds freedom?  

Tipping Point serves as a reminder that nothing is inevitable, and that change is possible.  

Swedish Cirkus Cirkör is the largest circus company in Scandinavia. Since the beginning in 1995, they have toured globally and created experiences which make the impossible possible. 

Tipping Pointis the latest performance by Circus Cirkör. Since its premiere this winter, the show has received glowing reviews in Swedish media.

Tipping Point is created with an adult audience in mind, but Cirkus Cirkör appeals to people of all ages, the performance therefore does not have a recommended age limit.
