Going Nowhere 2023
A physical comedy about the age of acceleration and the collapse of attention.
In the age of acceleration, nothing can be more exciting than walking slowly, and in a time of distraction, nothing is as luxurious as paying attention, and in a time of constant movement, nothing is as urgent as sitting still.
GOING NOWHERE is a new experimental and comic circus performance about the age of acceleration and the collapse of attention.
In GOING NOWHERE body percussion, object manipulation and acrobatic dance meet the absurd, the funny and the grotesque through an individual's struggle to regain calm, focus and depth in his life.
GOING NOWHERE has received generous support from Statens Kunstfond and Odense Kommune, and is being developed and produced in collaboration with DYNAMO Workspace for Circus and Performing Arts in Odense and AFUKScene in Copenhagen.
