In-house production “Identity taken”

“Identity taken” is a contemporary circus show with a duration of one hour, conceived and performed by twelve individual artists from Graz. The show sucessfully attracted around 750 people on four evenings.

Short description:
“Identity taken” explores the meaning of identity: It shows the search of an individual being and the question what defines ourselves as individuas. In the time of social media being part of our lives, we are confronted with the decision how to represent ourselves every day – some elements are shown, others remain oscure. Compliance, expectations, rebellion, self-awareness, discurs and unity – this production covers each state. This circus show consists of astonishing acrobatic elements, theater, elegant aerial silks and trapeze acts as well as live music. Black light is used as a special visual effect.
