• Exhibited at TENT, Rotterdam, the Netherlands

The project “Geest op de Fles” is focused on the invisible side of the community of Circus students through the performance “walking on the bottles” by Ronja Breuk, used as a metaphor to tell their story.

The request to be perfect and always on the top mental and physical conditions, represents a psychological and emotional toll for these artists. The work criticises the pressure that beauty and aesthetics, even in a “free-spirited” environment such as circus, exerts on individuals.

The project was part of a one week workshop with the American visual artist Shimon Attie which ended with an exhibiton at TENT, Rotterdam.
