"It provided deep and surprisingly moving insights into what the practice of a partner acrobat is really about. It was remarkable to see something so understated - with no stage lights, make-up, costumes, and only a little music - have such a strong emotional impact."
"A very original and interesting performance."
Henrik Agger and Louise von Euler Bjurholm present an intimate performance that gives the audience an impression of their work, practice and lives as pair acrobats. Part documentary, part performance, Extreme Symbiosis is a rare insight into the daily practice and the mental, physical and emotional challenges the life of a circus performer brings with it.
It is a raw and pure performance, that touches the heartfelt essence of circus as well as universal experiences that everyone can relate to.
"Henrik & Louise immediately established a genre that had rarely been seen before in circus: that of the lecture performance. Truly in the here and now." - Circus centrum
