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 criticizes 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.
