”Everything is extraordinarily creative. / What impresses most is the fantastic body control that is displayed.” - Sydsvenskan, Oct. 2020
"Since you all skillfully master characters, nuances and movement, you can only guess what work is behind the easy approach. It is deep, human and feminist.” - Vidisha Mallik, Expressteatern
”Your performing arts are filled with so much zest for life against oppression. It takes over the gaze, the room and the interpretive precedence. You create magic and "fart fun" for an audience that will understand that they need you, because their (and my) laughter comes from a pain, a longing and a pride. Exactly those kind of laughs many need to laugh. Keep going. Go ahead.” - Pelle Hanaeus, Malmö Theatre Academy
”A fantastic performance! Crazy, skilled and funny!” - Ed Damron, Expressteatern
BREAST IN PEACE
World premiere October 15th 2020
Breasts, beloved blend of fat, connective tissue and glands! As clowns, in the tension between cringe and virtuosity, M.P.A.C. explores breasts. What does breasts say about the human condition? Who can show what, where, how?
M.P.A.C. plays with perceptions of breasts to surprise, remove shame, arouse laughter and broaden the view on breasts both in the public and the personal intimate. Through clown, dance and circus M.P.A.C. builds a space of humor and vulnerability, rapture and resistance, tricks and reflection.
Who can show the nipples on the beach? In social media? Elevated on stage in the spotlight? Breasts are too big, too small, too saggy, too sexy, too heavy, too flat, too muscular. Are you breastfeeding here?! Breasts are hidden, missing and mourned. Breasts are a goldmine for four clowns with a punk circus attitude!
