TENT house for contemporary circus

I am Liza van Brakel, born in 1994 and raised in the Netherlands. I came into contact with circus at an early age. I spent my entire childhood at youth circus Poehaa in Arnhem where I became fascinated by the world behind the circus. In 2017 I graduated from Codarts Circus Arts in Rotterdam. There I discovered my love for juggling and developed this discipline from a physical point of view until it became my own art form.

Since then, I travel the world juggling. The clubs became an extension of my body. Juggling expands my physical space and fills voids. I have always been very interested in that aspect of juggling where technically speaking there is no juggling at all.

For several years now I have been connected to TENT as a maker and performer. Initially as a participant of Back to Base, and later as a performer of Being Benjamin and JACK, two productions by TENT/Benjamin Kuitenbrouwer. 2021 will be the year I start working as a maker at TENT. As Maker for a week, I am interested in the input of performers and dancers when they work with objects, but do not master the discipline. Do you have to be able to juggle to juggle?
