A Sensitive case is a two part project that intertwines mousetrap sculpting with a circus show about the search through an enclosed 3-4m world made out of vulnerable (mouse)trap architectures.
This show is set in a 3-4m space filled with fragile mousetraps architectures. In this vulnerable closed off world a human measures and traces every form and shape inside. Handstands, tight enclosures, balanced movement and a lot of challenges are the result of this. This exploration passes through a lot of unpredictability and fragile encounters. The audience participates in surrounding this world by setting up a barrier made out of their shoes and watches how this shared moment unfolds in front of them.
Circus artist Bert van de Berghe has a love of circus and mousetraps. Specialised in hand balancing, he has developed his own language. His creations are always based on his own body.
