Open air performance BARK is a poetic, spectacular and thought-provoking contemporary circus performance about reconnecting with each other and with nature.

BARK is built in a local forest, where the forest and the trees are the main characters together with the artists who work with acrobatics, vertical dance and physical theater, with experimental soundscapes and poetic text.
The artists bicycle from forest to forest throughout May – so you can find them in the landscape near you!

This presentation is happening with the support of Perform Europe as part of the BARK Sustainable Touring project.

ABOUT PERFORM EUROPE Perform Europe is an EU-funded project aimed at rethinking how performing arts works are presented across borders in a more inclusive, sustainable and balanced way by testing new touring and distribution practices and providing policy recommendations for a future EU support scheme. This 18-month journey includes a research phase, launching a digital platform, testing a support scheme, and designing policy recommendations. Perform Europe is funded by the Creative Europe Program of the European Union and co-managed by a Consortium of 5 organizations: IETM – International network for contemporary performing arts, the European Festivals Association (EFA), Circostrada, EDN – European Dancehouse Network, and IDEA Consult.
