PACE is the first production from Below Zero a Scandinavian made circus company. The show is a duett with the hand to hand couple Axel and Sara. It touches on the idea of relationships – how time and movement affect the artists relationship and in its turn how the relationship affects the time and movement of the performance itself.
Understanding PACE is understanding our human heritage. It’s a story of two people as well as a story about society, of equality, where society is going and where we wish society as a whole can go.With music ranging over different genres the soundscape is unpredictable which makes the performance even more alive as electric beats mixes with Scandinavian folk music.
With a simple yet impressive scenography PACE makes the stage come alive. From small intimate spaces to huge rooms with walls staring down at the artists, the scenography changes in a organic way together with the performance. The gentle light that the fatigued fabric imposes on the space creates a bridge between the industrial doorframe of solid steel and the human fragility of the artists bodies.It’s a personal piece where the artists gives a honest performance filled with emotion, original movement and the highest level of modern circus.
Welcome to Below Zero’s first piece.
