CIRCUS KATOEN (Belgium/Netherlands)

The show “Ex Aequo”will be presented at “Piena Svētki” in the park of Ziemeļblāzma on August 2nd.

Sophie van der Vuurst de Vries from Netherlands and Willem Balduyck from Belgium forms the contemporary circus/physical theatre duo Circus Katoen. Both started circus at a very early age, they met in 2006, and are working together since specializing in partner acrobatics.

Where will we place her houseplant, where will we put the closet, and where will his clothes go? In ‘Ex Aequo’ two characters are going to live together. They both have important stuff, all of which deserves its own place in their house. In a playful and physical way they explore the area where they are going to live together, and won’t rest until everything has found its place. They challenge each other, push each other to their limits, and co-operate until they’ve found the balance. 

‘Ex Aequo’ is a wonderful performance of two young circus artists who surprise and move you with their impressive acrobatics.
