A loop is a cyclic structure, repetitions that grow in layers, bodies and sound that are woven together, overlapped and recreated. We constantly loop through life, an eternal choreography that is repeated with only a few stops and interruptions. But what happens when we choreographically stage loops, allow the audience to co-create and move it out into the public space.
The piece is created in connection with PASSAGE Festival Volunteer Camp.
PASSAGE Volunteer Camp is a two-week folk high school inspired camp for 12 young people from DK, Poland, Austria and Germany. The camp takes place in connection with the street theater festival PASSAGE Festival.
The young people from the Camp have participated in a workshop with choreographer Mette Overgaard from Running Sculptures, where they have worked with looping choreography, improvisation and movement. This showing is the result of their workshop.

“Encore une fois” (Again) is an energetic and playful show that thrills with breathtaking acrobatics and rousing creativity. Three artists, each more adventurous than the other, test the possibilities of the seesaw.
With much authenticity, courage and passion, the three young artists devote themselves to this idea: all mistakes are allowed. The circus, as in life, is about the risk, so let’s fail and start over.
So, they do: mess it all up and start over, again and again, mixing every element from ping-pong balls to saltos, all to the changing tempo of their musical creation.
