The artists of Cirque Alfonse opened the Winterfest with »Tabarnak«, a surreal mass-like celebration in Canadian style. With »Dans ton cœur« Cie Akoreacro from France showed a spirited piece that takes a lighthearted look at the seemingly mundane everyday life of a couple. In »Only Bones v1.0« Thom Monckton bent his body, let the hands speak, kneaded his face like plasticine and let his head roll. Circa from Australia delivered a glamorous performance that carried the audiences away into a mirror cabinet of sensual-poetic images and fantasy.
In the ARGEkultur, the Berlin collective still hungry showed »RAVEN«, an intelligent and humorous piece about motherhood. Circus experiments were again shown in the young format Kaleidoscope in the Toihaus Theater.
