“…a passionate portrayal of our shared humanity…”
—DN (Sweden)

Five acrobats catapult and tumble through a strikingly rendered world of sea-, land-, and cityscape, grappling defiantly to connect across the walls, fences, and other obstacles that spring up between them. Equal parts high-flying spectacle and trenchant critique, Limits imagines a world in which we soar over the borders that separate us—if we can only keep each other from collapsing. In this acrobatic exploration of an EU in flux, set to an eclectic live score, Sweden’s Cirkus Cirkör (Wear it like a crown, 2012 Winter/Spring; Inside Out, 2009 Next Wave) sets out to challenge both the limits of the human body and the body politic.

Set design by Fanny Senocq, Stefan ”Drake” Karlström, Joel Jedström, and Tilde Björfors
Costume design by Jonna Bergelin
Video and projections by Johannes Ferm Winkler, Tom Waldton, and Per Rydnert / Visual Relief Lighting design by Fredrik Ekström
Choreography by Olle Strandberg
Make up design by Madelene Söderblom

Limits was partly developed in residence at The Watermill Center, USA as well as in residence at Västmanland's Teater. Limits is a coproduction with Archaos, Pôle National des Arts du Cirque Méditerranée. With suport from: Statens kulturråd, Stockholms läns landsting, Stockholms stads kulturförvaltning, Botkyrka kommun
