Marta & Kim (NOR + NED) ENGEL
Beautiful, symbiotic duet with an acrobatic dancer, and a dancing acrobat.
Biljetter & info
Performance duration: 50 min
Meet circus artist Marta Alstadsæter and dancer Kim-Jomi Fischer in an intimate evening where dance and acrobatics meet across the boundaries of the genre.
A physical dialogue where Marta and Kim through constant movement of weight, direction and movement ask questions about consciousness. Where do our thoughts come from? Engel is a performance about inner struggle and decision making.
Marta and Kim met in 2015. Their different history became the basis for a thriving collaboration. In the years that have passed since then, they have created their own artistic expression by delving deep into the possibilities and qualities that exist in the symbiosis between acrobatics and dance.

Marta Alstadsæter (Hammerfest, Norway 1990) comes from an artistic family. She had plans to become a writer, but eventually ended up in the Netherlands and acrobatics. She specializes in hand acrobatics and holds a Bachelor of Circus Arts from Codarts University in Rotterdam. In addition to her own work, she works as a freelance artist, with, among others, Erik Kaiel / Arch8, Cie Woest and is part of Collective Penguin Productions.
Kim-Jomi Fischer (Utrecht, Netherlands 1985) was born into a family of street performers and was introduced to acrobatics early on. But Kim himself was drawn to dance instead. In 2007 he graduated from Codarts, Rotterdam’s dance academy. Since then he has worked as a freelance dancer in the Netherlands for choreographers such as Ann CEO Broek, André Gingras, Liat Waysbort, Loïc Perela, and Suzy Blok.
In 2011 he worked for DV8 Physical Theater in the production “Can we talk about this?”. Today Kim is back in the Netherlands where he worked most with Pia Meuthen, Ivan Perez and Erik Kaiel.
