About Circular Vertigo

A pommel horse weighing 100 kg. The material of school nightmares and a symbol of drill and competition in high- performance sports. A final opponent, indeed. But not here: The dancer approaches her partner with complete impartiality, exploring the apparatus with almost childlike wonder. She explores what is possible, but also what is impossible. And yet never uses it in the way one would expect. Tirelessly and light- footedly, she is working away at her counterpart, who swings in circles through the air. Sometimes mischievous or provocative, sometimes full of defiant resistance.

About Overhead Project

Overhead Project stands for performances between contemporary circus and dance – two languages that allow different perspectives on the human body and a multidimensional approach to space and architecture.The company, directed by choreographer and circus artist Tim Behren, evolved from an intense acrobatic duo work with (former) co-founder Florian Patschovsky. Today, the artistic core team consists of composer Simon Bauer, visual artist Charlotte Ducousso, performer Mijin Kim and other long-time performers and experts from various fields.

Numerous productions and several guest choreographies for city theaters with large ensembles have been created. The company has received several (inter)national awards and choreography prizes for its works, most recently the Tabori Award 2022 from the Fonds Darstellende Künste.
