Carrying my father
THERE THERE Company
Carrying my father is a physical, acrobatic performance about carrying and being carried. About holding on and letting go. About strength and rivalry. On stage we find four circus performers with their father. Eight grown men carry each other, test each other, meet each other where we don't expect it.
Eight bodies that are not equally strong, but equally powerful in their individuality and interaction. They discover the challenges of aging and the richness of working together. Fathers and sons among themselves. Central to this is the realization: as the father carried the son, so the son will one day carry the father.
