Since 2012, the BNG Bank Circus Prize has been awarded to the best graduating act of the Dutch circus programmes at Codarts and ACaPA. Audiences are treated to four innovative and original performances by the nominated super talents. The contenders for 2022 are: Jef Kinds, Harvey Cobb, Fenja Barteldres en Jonas Bolliger.
Jef Kinds – OSMIUM
Humans are the only species that can reflect on their past. This fact shapes us and makes us grow, if not always without pain. Inevitably, we are confronted with grief, shame and dark thoughts. OSMIUM is a melancholic act with impressive aerial acrobatics about the grip memories have on us and the art of letting go.
Harvey Cobb – Something about Pink
The artist Harvey Cobb gets himself into a tight spot. In an attempt to win over his audience, he digs himself into a hole, going deeper and deeper. When he has reached rock bottom, he tries to make an epic finale with one last convulsion of crazy dances, absurd stand-up comedy, and ludicrous juggling.
Fenja Barteldres – Cyrrealism
Life is unpredictable. The paths we take meander in all directions. This fickleness of life is represented in ‘Cyrrealism’ by a special Cyr-wheel. Normally, this circus instrument is a metal ring that consists of separate pieces screwed tightly together. Fenja uses her wheel without the screws, thus revealing totally new possibilities. Armed with this ring, she creates an ode to the imperfections of life and shows that new perspectives do not have to be frightening but can also lead to beauty.
Jonas Bolliger – “THIS!”
In the performance “”THIS!””, Jonas Bolliger tries to make it clear to the audience what ‘this’ is. There are only two problems: a) he is still looking for ‘this’ himself and b) he can only explain ‘this’ by using an example. Together with the audience, the acrobat embarks on a light-hearted and personal journey of discovery that turns everything upside down.
“An up-and-coming super talent who always surprises.”
