“Life of Creatures” creates a universe where the spectator may observe the average day of different beings. It is a contemporary circus show based on the concept of theater of the absurd. It focuses on ideas of existentialism, challenges the viewers perspective by shifting focus from physical inputs to philosophical interpretations, playing with the human “disease” of trying to find meaning everywhere. By using circus disciplines to express existentialist ideas I bring the audience a modern contemporary circus interpretation of théâtre de l'absurde.
