Acting for Climate



BARK is a poetic, spectacular and thought provoking contemporary circus performance for a forest, an audience, and five performing artists. Played site-specifically in and with your local forest, BARK is about reconnecting with each other and with nature. The forest, the soil and the trees are the main characters of the performance, and co-create the piece together with the performers, climate scientists and outside eyes. 

The performance combines a physical expression of group acrobatics, vertical dance, dance and physical theatre with contemporary soundscapes and poetic text, all performed up in, between, with and around the trees. Through being nature, reconnecting, and living utopia, BARK aims to convey a sensory experience that can change perspectives on our human natures, as a part of the biosphere.

BARK will premiere May 7th and tour Denmark, Norway and Finland by bike during the summer and autumn of 2021.
