SAWDUST SYMPHONY at Cirque Mania #12 at Korzo, The Hague

24th  & 25th September.

Sawdust Symphony talks about the human desire to create: the process from vision to construction, the tragedy of work and the relationship between tools and humans.

What exactly is the satisfaction to hit a nail into wood? What is the sensation when sanding a surface and how does it feel for a machine to work? In this creation the performers share the stage with tools and machinery. Object manipulation and Magie Nouvelle is used as language to tell a unique and absurd story about the cosmos of work. The basic characteristics of tools – separating and fusion – influence the bodies on stage and represent the human influence on matter and society. This piece is an intense dialogue between satisfaction, frustration and the smell of gasoline.
