UNTITLED_I will be there when you die is a choreographic and performative practice on the passing of time born out of a reflection on the art of juggling. This work represents the second chapter of a larger project entitled Will you still love me tomorrow?, A research on the concepts of strain, perseverance and endurance. In this new work the toss juggling (the throwing of objects) evokes the fragility of human existence. If Folk-s is a performance without eyes composed by ear, following the rhythm, I will be there when you die is like a work written with the eye. The idea is to strip away all the stereotypes that are commonly associated to this circus art in the collective imagination to allow its exploration as a language. Practice, rule, discipline, commitment, concentration are the building blocks of this work that force the actors to stay in the present time, no chance to go back, again and again and again. alessandrosciarroni.it
