UP-AND-DOWN-AND-UP-

Choreography: Jernej Bizjak

UP-AND-DOWN-AND-UP- is a movement-based project that invites young audiences (3+) to experience how sheer movement can have a powerful impact on our state of mind. A white bouncy castle that unfolds in front of us, becoming a collective space for joy and happiness. The project focuses on the perception of individual and collective happiness, while upholding a critical attitude against the prevailing perception of happiness within the capitalist framework. UP-AND-DOWN-AND-UP- addresses the audiences with an original format – “work-formance”, starting with a movement workshop and continuing into a performance, where youngsters become protagonists of movement action.
