Calculated Risk consists of three parts: The Ritual, The Story and The Installation.

For The Ritual, equilibrist Kasper Vandenberghe puts on a bubble wrap suit, mounts a scaffold and then drops like a ton of bricks. It is well-thought-out daredevilry. A tribute to fragility and resilience. Each step is accompanied by a text written by Peter Verhelst.

The Installation shows Kasper Vandenberghe’s studio. The setup visualises the drudgery behind his exploration of falling and getting up.

During The Story, Kasper Vandenberghe investigates various aspects of his performance. He reflects on his conversations with a circus artist, bubble wrap manufacturer, a psychoanalytic, a traumatologist and an insurer.

You can view and listen to this triptych in random sequence. You do need a ticket for The Story.
