Tipping Point

Balancing in a Time of Change

Next event:

​On a tightrope with Cirkus Cirkör.

What does it take to keep the balance when what seems stable suddenly collapses? Meet five circus artists and a musician in a raw world built of trusses, metal pipes and wires. Through acrobatics, aerial acrobatics, hair hanging and contortionism, they move with, against and despite the structures.  

Tipping Point – Balancing in a Time of Change is a circus show about structures – our human structures and what holds our societies and democracies together.  

In a tensegrity structure, the form is held together by tension, balance and forces that pull in different directions. The slightest change can cause the entire building to fall. What happens when the most fundamental collapses? Who gets trapped, and who finds freedom?  

Tipping Point serves as a reminder that nothing is inevitable, and that change is possible.  

Swedish Cirkus Cirkör is the largest circus company in Scandinavia. Since the beginning in 1995, they have toured globally and created experiences which make the impossible possible. Tipping Point is the company's newest production and will see its world premiere in the winter of 2024.
