‘Grasshoppers’ is a representation of the resilience and vulnerability of nature and the role that we as humans play in it.

In ‘Grasshoppers’, Circus Katoen removes a piece of green from its natural habitat and brings it above ground level using trestles, planks, rope and their bodies. The audience follows the artists transforming the grass into an object that is literally mobilized, manipulated and controlled. The spectator’s attention is easily drawn to the green grass. And when this suffers, we hope to arouse empathy within the spectator. Empathy for fragile nature.

‘Grasshoppers’ is a show for children, but can be enjoyed by all the family!
