CHINA SERIES #5
CHINA SERIES #5 focuses on the difference between the diabolos manufactured by the artist, from recuperated ceramics. Each object takes on different weights, shapes, sizes, colors, materials, musicalities: they are all unique and require an adapted manipulation. The performance evokes a form of fragility, of “breakability” of objects and bodies, but also of situations and relationships.
Julian Vogel finished his BA degree from the Academy for Circus and Performance Art (ACaPA), with specialization diabolo in 2019. Before, he studied Psychology and Art History at University of Bern. He is co-founder of Cie. Trottvoir and KLUB GIRKO and has created several artistic works with and next to those companies. He is participating in other artistic projects (e.g. Panama Pictures, Cie.sh) as a performer and artistic coach and is composing/producing electronic music for international circus and dance companies. He has been taught and influenced amongst others by Roman Müller, Alexander Van Turnhout, Breno Caetano, Nicanor DeElia, Darragh McLaughlin, Jonas Althaus.
