FREE ENTRY

Virtuous, breathtaking balancing art. Play with gravity with the audience as counterweight. Perseverance, strength and weightlessness 7 meters above ground. Hyperactive, masculine chaos dance with chalk dust. Flying skaters in close combat. A playful and energetic workshop programme for everybody, who dares put the body to the test.

MOVE IT! is a tribute to the urban body. Acrobatics, movement, balance and gravity is explored and challenged over the course of four days with 17 outstanding performances and 19 workshops, which draw from and mix circus, dance, parkour and skating.

 

REVIEW

“Balance art and bodies maneuvering in the intersection of play and muscle control were the focus of the Move It! Festival… the joy of creativity… an experimental arena exploring the equilibrium’s delicate art … equilibristic duet on a seesaw… a big playground for everybody… the total body control and muscle strength… Chloé Moglia turned weightlessly in swallow nests, twisted the floating body in the sky, hung in one hand, in the knee or balanced on the middle of the body like a straight beam… Down on earth again, she breathed in. And so did the audience – after holding the breath for half an hour. Sublime!” Weekendavisen
