Strong people doing impossible things for a very long time!
A group of circus artists perform endurances of single circus actions. As the hours tick by the initial virtuosity of the action is broken down and the artists in all their strength and fragility are revealed.
All the while you, the observer, pass by – to see, and be seen.
This series of performances raises a question: how can circus be transformed by placing it within the context of an exhibition space?
