Grasshoppers – By Circus Katoen
‘Grasshoppers’ is a representation of the resilience and vulnerability of nature and the role that we as humans play in it.
In ‘Grasshoppers’, Circus Katoen removes a piece of green from its natural habitat and brings it into our man-made world, using trestles, planks, rope and their bodies to creatively puppeteer it around the space.
Slowly, the turf becomes a character in its own right, and as it is manipulated into motion, the audience can’t help but empathise with the greenery, moved far away from its home.
‘Grasshoppers’ is a show for children, but can be enjoyed by all the family! Circus Katoen hope that the show will inspire kindness towards nature in future generations.
