CARRYING MY FATHER – CREATION 2019
An encounter of eight men. Four sons and their fathers. Carrying my father is a physical performance about carrying and being carried. About care and strength. About holding on and letting go. About time transforming bodies and relations. One day i will have to carry my father, as he carried me.
Carrying my father started with a preliminary research where Toon Van Gramberen introduced his father in the key concepts of hand to hand acrobatics. For this new performance they will work with a mixed cast of professional and amateur performers.
