Mix of juggling, music and text.
Meet new circus maker Benjamin 'Monki' Kuitenbrouwer. In this intimate theatrical programme, Benjamin takes us along on his search for his own raw, daring language of circus. He juggles with words to the rhythm of the music, creates visual stories and shows us surprising fragments in development. BEING BENJAMIN is the first result of his journey from performer to director and is a taste of his directorial debut JACK, which premièred in the fall of 2020. TENT is supporting and coaching Benjamin in a two-year process to further his development as a circus maker. This process is supported by the New Makers scheme from the Performing Arts Fund NL.
