Portraits and Short Stories

Portraits and Short Stories, tour Netherlands, The Netherlands
12 t/m 12 February 2016
Six men aged between 20 and 60 allow us an intimate glimpse into their mutual relationships. In different episodes, Portraits and short stories portrays the bond between father and son, growing up, growing apart and becoming older. It is a coming-of-age story where youthful bravado alternates with moments of vulnerability. On rope, Chinese pole and the trampoline, the men brave the pull of gravity. Dance flows seamlessly with acrobatic mastery. Choreographer Pia Meuthen weaves dance and circus into a poignant visual story. The performance is supported by a cast of dancers and acrobats. Three generations searching for what family ties and getting older mean to them.
