The project „IS IT A TRICK?“ is an immersive evening long stage production that is settled in the genres contemporary circus and installation.
In the center of the project is the empirical examination of the predominant viewing conditions of circus reception according to aesthetic, sociocultural and communicative aspects of viewing. The performance is set in an open stage situation without a preset auditorium. Within this area two key points are of special interest: the line of view on the one hand and the isolation of single components of a movement repertoire on the other hand. The focus of the artist is not directly on the object but is being directed via mirrors and shadows.
The artist Sebastian Berger developed most of the manipulation technique by himself and is the the only performer worldwide showing it on stage. Coming form a very technical background, winning serval international prices for his creation of technique, In „IS IT A TRICK?“ he questions, deconstructs and rearranges his artistic language.
