The performance is presented at Bora Bora as part of a double bill together with the performance "Polystyrene Research". The ticket is valid for both performances.
"As heavy as it goes" is a composition of organizing and disorganizing, carrying and dropping and giving attention on finding playfulness when pushing their physical limits. In "As heavy as it goes" Circus Katoen explores different aspects of physical labour. With the weight of 18 heavy bags as starting material they are looking to re-define their circus practice.
Weight has always been a key element in Circus Katoen’s practice, especially working with the equilibrium of their two bodies. With this performance they want to grotesquely elaborate on this element by using the bags as a challenge.
'As Heavy as it goes' had its première at Festival PerlX 2017. With this show, Circus Katoen is a laureate of CircusNext 2015/2016, which is a European platform for young talent.
