In ‘Portraits’, Aline Breucker and Quintijn Ketels portray two very different circus performers: Camille Paycha and Sander De Cuyper.

The basic idea is fairly simple. The audience enters a studio where people are busy working and philosophising. Meanwhile, the performers try to structure their ideas and make sense of things.

‘Portraits’ questions the link between movement and tracks, between work and life. Existential questions such as “Is this a portrait of a person, a practice or of a relationship between two people?” and “If you’re looking at me, who am I looking at?” emerge. In circus techniques, drawings and monotypes, a surprising portrait of the situation therefore appears.
