A balancing act between falling and showing resilience
BITBYBIT combines a classic circus technique (Jaws of Steel) with a visual story about two inseparable brothers (Simon and Vincent Bruyninckx from Collectif Malunés). During the performance that is as vulnerable as it is spectacular, they go through all phases of their relationship together. From conflicted and light-hearted play over careful rapprochement to blind trust and total surrender to each other.
Between their steel jaws they each clamp the end of a rope, which keeps them connected like an umbilical cord. That image is at the same time the starting point for a groundbreaking investigation of form and an exploration of the terrain in which their own self ends and that of the other begins.
The hyperphysical direction (Kasper Vandenberghe of MOVEDBYMATTER) and the blistering soundtrack (Dijf Sanders) make BITBYBIT a balancing act between trial and error. Thanks to the connection that is so intense and unconditional that it can transcend the limitations of our (one and a half meter) society.
