What is the most important thing for you: Work? Family? Health? Would you sacrifice a little health for greater success? What movements do you repeat most frequently during the day? Do these things seem absurd? Should you juggle more so as to get more? When everything is moving too fast, do you need have to stop before you get hooked?

There is clearly a link between the absurdity of work itself and the absurdity of juggling work commitments. Humanoptere creates a micro-society of seven jugglers and allows complex exchanges and relationships to emerge. The show offers an allegory for specific perceptions and definitions of work. These themes are examined through the of the performers’ movements, by paying close attention to the body and via disciplined juggling technique.


“Why do you keep moving faster and faster? Why not unwind? Relax the pace? Ease up at work? Slow your growth? Why not time out to breathe? You say you’re in a hurry - OK, fine! But if you’re in a rush, I’d advise you to go as slowly as you can. Because if you’re pressed for time, there’s no room for mistakes.”
