HUMAN IN BALANCE - [ADD CITY]
NEW CITY - NEW PERFORMANCE. TOGETHER WE FIND THE NEW BALANCE!
"Human in Balance - [ADD CITY]" is a dynamic and flexible performance that premieres again and again! When the performance is shown in a new city, its focus changes and a new, unique performance arises.
The performance developed in close collaboration with the city where the performance will take place, and the partners of that city help to choose a focus, suggest participating artists, a current political theme or local issues, which can be incorporated into the performance to evoke recognition, thoughts and dialogue among the audience and artists.
The scenographic framework is an oversized balance board that serves as a clear metaphor for interpersonal relationships. It also illustrates very concretely what the premises for collaboration are - namely to get the 500 kg heavy spinning top in to rhythmic rotation or completely in balance.
The project can be scaled from smaller intimate theater to larger stages, which can accommodate up to 2,000 spectators. The performance can be produced both indoors and outdoors.

Hight artistic quality and local ownership
The project is the result of a dream to set the artistic process free and involve the audience much more.
In the pilot project, "Human in Balance", the performance was shown once in Paphos and twice in Aarhus. In the performance "Human in Balance", the focus was on a process of free rein and play, which "Human in Balance [ADD CITY]" copies in its format. In this way, high artistic quality is taken into account, which at the same time provides space for development and immersion and adds nerve and intensity through the local collaboration.
"Human in Balance" was originally developed as part of the European Capital of Culture 2017 - in cooperation with Cypriot Dance House Lemesos og Bora Bora - Dans og Visuelt Teater and has since then been produced in Vilnius and Gellerup.
