A poetic meeting
To the deep tones of a double bass, two performers move around the stage. One is a dancer, the other is a visual artist. Both with rooted experience as circus performers.
Based on a portmanteau – a linguistic term for new words that combine two meanings – the performance examines what happens in the meeting between two artistic expressions.
Together, the performers explore space, sounds, light and movement – a poetic and visual encounter between bodies and senses that entices and challenges the imagination.
Like in poetry, Portmanteau does not dictate a clear narrative, but rather allows the audience to bring in their own interpretations.
