Sar-Tan

Amir Guetta (FR/IL)
Once upon a time, on a planet teeming with life, a delicate balance reigned.

WORK IN PROGRESS: Sar-Tan is a part of the European Hand to hand circus and residency project and was developed in an immersion residency in the codfish packaging and distribution industry in Ilhavo, Portugal, together with Bússola.

Once upon a time, on a planet teeming with life, a delicate balance reigned. From icy tundras to

lush jungles, every creature had its place in this magical tapestry of biodiversity.

However, one species, driven by insatiable desire, began to disrupt this harmony.

Sar-Tan! means cancer, the cancer of this earth that has spread to every corner of this planet

from the top of the mountains to the deep of the seas.

“During my visit at the codfish packaging industry in Ilhavo, Portugal, I saw how much harm we

cause to satisfy our hunger. Do we really need to travel such long distances for food? Do we see animals as equal living beings or just as food on our plates?”

Sar-tan is a blend of live music, acrobatics, dance, and balance, a series of engaging scenes, that will entertain and bring you new insights on our destruction of the natural balance of the world and our consumption of it until the end of us all. Like a cancer of this planet.

Sar-Tan also wants to foster a sense of togetherness and shared responsibility, to make us think about our impact on the environment and how we can make a positive difference, reducing our ecological footprint.

Duration: 15 min.

HAND TO HAND (2023-2025)

Hand to Hand is a European contemporary circus exploration in public space to collectively question the notion of social ecology.

The project is led by Le Palc, national circus centre in France, in partnership with Bússola in Portugal, Helsingør Teater in Denmark and Room 100 in Croatia.

For two and a half years, the project aims to explore the issue of sustainability through learning and experiential spaces of research for circus artists, especially emerging artists in their artistic practice in public space, to develop new capacities of initiating a transition, transforming artistic and methodological practices in public space for sustainability.

Mentors, researchers, private firms, cultural and creative industries actors, are involved in the whole process.

8 selected artists have followed a journey of four exploration times in the four countries and collaborated through immersion residencies with private firms such as Joseph Perrier, champagne house; Fila Arches, paper mill of art paper in France ; Ston Salt marshes in Croatia ; a maritime workshop for the renovation of wooden boats, Educations for boatbuilding and sailmaking and a professional fisherman in Denmark ; Codfish Harbor and the codfish packaging of Ílhavo, distant water fishing in Portugal.

During the four partners festivals, the artists will share their artistic prototypes with festival with audiences, as a work in progress collecting their experience from one activity sector in one country.

HAND TO HAND is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
