As Heavy As it Goes
Young artists, Willem Balduyck and Sophie van der Vuurst de Vries, met during their studies at the Codarts Rotterdam Circus School, since then they perform as Circus Katoen. In As heavy as it goes Circus Katoen explores different aspects of physical labour. 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 18 kg bags as a challenge.
