Gap of 42 (Germany)
Two dissimilar bodies meet acrobatically.
42 cm separate them in height, 42 kg in weight. A difference that connects and creates possibilities instead of being an obstacle. Extraordinary acrobatics will make you marvel, subtle humour will make you smile.
Three wooden objects equalize the difference in height and become a third partner on stage. The show is a compilation of contemporary circus, physical theatre and dance. Philosophical questions get asked, absurd moments arise and a glimpse of magic surprises.
“Seldom has one seen a dance or acrobatic couple that portrays the great themes of being so subtly, so poetically.” (Bernd Guido Weber in “Schwäbische” about GAP of 42)
