Can people be manipulated to perform actions they would not have chosen to do themselves? Does the free will exist? QUIPROQUO sets out on a quest to find the answers to these ques- tions and more.
QUIPROQUO is created by and starring the performers Samuel Gustavsson and Niclas Stureberg, who both draw upon their strong backgrounds in the world of circus and use it in the universe of dance. Using body improvisations and a string of objects they have created a subtle fusion between the theatrical stage image and the equilibrium of juggling.
QUIPROQUO IS AVAILABLE FOR TOURING MAY-AUG/SEPT 2011 AND FROM DEC 2012
