The piece “Hau Ruck” (“Heave-ho”) by the Cologne group Raum für Zirkus moves between contemporary circus, artistry, dance, movement theatre and music. The four artists, all with a long-time youth circus background, came together at the Abenteuerhallen Kalk at the end of 2019. The young artists show how deconstruction may serve as an omnipresent possibility of renewal, allowing us to free ourselves of inflexible thought patterns and mental impasses. They explore acrobatics, violence and timber, all the while striving to question original functions and find new forms. They present an impressive reconstruction beyond our habitual ways of perception. A blow is a nudge with full force: Heave-ho.
