Clever, inventive and in the most literal sense full of suspense, Alexander tests everything that comes his way in "Breaking Point".
Impressive virtuosity, a lot of charm and a very special style is what defines "Breaking Point"!
Breaking Point is about suspense. The Swedish circus artist Alexander Weibel Weibel explores mainly on a slack rope, how far things can be pushed before the inevitable happens.
With the help of the audience and a selection of everyday items, props are built on stage, then manipulated and tested in an unconventional way, until they break (or not).
There are no tricks, what you see is what you get. The paper is real paper, the fishing line is real fishing line and the fire is real fire. The performance explores the art form by stripping it to its core and seeing what comes out of it.
Breaking Point, like "Extreme Symbiosis", is the result of two years of artistic research in the Master Program on "New Performative Practices" at the University of the Arts in Stockholm (DOCH).
