Kaaos Kaamos 2.0-36.jpg


We are creating an indoor circus performance, for all audiences, that will premiere in Winter 2022 at CIRKL in Belgium.

First of, we have human connection, as something crucial. We face the importance of being needed, be that for other people or for society at large. We believe that this connection is what brings meaning to people's lives. 

From there we go to what we all share, at the deepest level. Simply the experience of being human. The experience of being human and being faced with something bigger than yourself, be that the intricacies of society, the inner universe that keeps unfolding or the vast power and unforgiving beauty of nature. The very climax of being human, or Peak Experience. One can call it spiritual, sacred or even metaphysical, they remain the same experience. 

The tools we are working with, apart from the circus techniques, are high level athleticism and absurd physical imagery.

Twisting our rituals into something abstract, to get to the core of what we all share. 

Telling each other stories about what we are and recreating a shared reality for the artists and the audience.

They try to be better together, to "reach the sky". It's about links, community or family. And yes, they are definitely not the same people. They don't even speak the same language. Babel's curse? Forget it! They'll do better no matter what happens. By chance, they have Fika*. Kaaos Kaamos intends to explore the tension between "be yourself" and "be together". For that, they use six strong characters in a quest for a common language: the body; a common ritual: the food; a common symbol: the magnesium.
*Fika: the strong Swedish tradition of having coffee and something sweet, usually shared with a colleague or friend in the afternoon.
