A Circus Trilogy after Kafka
A trapeze artist had so arranged her life that she never came down from her trapeze by night or day. But one day she realized that one trapeze wasn't enough anymore: “Only this one bar in my hands—how can I live?”
With the circus literature by Franz Kafka and Jean Genet, Jana Korb examines the existential essence of aerial arts, the art of aerial arts. She explores the topic of circus in literature and brings it back as theatric performance into the circus. With narration as the starting point, she develops her own circus body language. It is about dependencies, intransigence, and everlasting temporary – high up on the trapeze.

Aerial theater on the fix trapeze (30min.), in German, Czech, English, French, Portuguese, Dutch or other languages.
