Carrying my father is a physical, acrobatic play about carrying and being carried. Holding and letting go. Strength and rivalry. There are four circus artistes on stage with their fathers. Eight adult men carry each other, test each other, encounter each other where we do not expect them to.
These eight bodies are not equally strong, but they are equally powerful in their individuality and interaction. Together they discover the challenges of growing older and the richness of working together. The bonds between father and son. The key to the production is the realisation that just as the father carried the son, one day the son will carry the father.
