Every exit always also is an entrance: Four virtuoso acrobats prove this in a breathtaking manoeuvre between rotating walls and swinging doors. The choreograph Piet Van Dycke and his protagonists tell about the play with force and forces, the strive for independence and individuality, the getting together and the realisation that dead ends mostly are found inside heads. Four people meet each other and complete a journey through space together. They spur each other on, they collide with each other, climb on to and over each other, carry each other, and transform themselves. They arrive and depart, meet each other and separate, they appear and disappear. They never stop moving, but they never arrive. The four men keep each other in balance, but also make each other loose that balance. The risk that everything may fall apart is ever present in the space.


The Belgian acrobatics and dance company (artistic direction: Piet Van Dycke) develops and produces impressive pieces for a broad audience and tours the whole world with them.

“The acrobatics are not there to achieve something, but to challenge the impossible. By exploring the limits of balance, gravity, time, and stamina, a unique dance develops.” (Piet Van Dycke)
