BELLY OF THE WHALE was the winning project of the Total Theatre and Jacksons Lane Award for Circus at the 2016 Edinburgh. It is a meeting of the arts, where sculpture intersects with new circus and with physical theatre. It is an interdisciplinary performance of curiosity and intuition.
The artists assemble a giant semi-circular structure made of steel and wood, with applications that evolve, turning into catapults, tunnels, mountains and slides, creating spaces and imaginary lands.
The “belly of the whale” concept has its genesis in the biblical mythology of Jonah and the confrontation that each person can have with their memories in the awakening of fear and power at the moment of change.
