“It will make or break” is a project that combines couple acrobatics with Nordic folk music. With an impetus from her own family history and her own experiences, Rebecka Nord wants to create a performance about the woman’s physical strength from both a historical and contemporary perspective. The starting point is the physical tasks that have historically always been on women. This is not least about carrying everything: children, potato sacks, pots, water and milk jugs, pushchairs into the car and upstairs, grocery bags from the shop, firewood and the like.
The ambition is to create an artistically strong performance that tells an important part of the Nordic woman’s history and highlights the woman’s physical strength. This is embodied with the help of female par acrobats who have spent most of their lives working with just physical strength and have as a profession to wear or be worn.
The show will be produced during different residency weeks in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland in 2019. Residency centers include Sorin Circus in Tampere, DYNAMO in Odense, DansIt in Trondheim, Karavan in Malmö and Landskrona Theater where the premiere is also planned. to take place in February 2020.
