Talking Circus & Meaning with Sebastian Kann

Photo credit Daniel Mottard.

This week at Hupdate we interview Sebastian Kann about his work as a circus performer, a dramaturge and a choreographer. We also delve deeply in to the topics of what it means to redefine circus as a contemporary art form and take on some questions that will make your brain bend–questions like; are there new ways of dealing with tricks, where does meaning happen in circus, and does the audience make the art happen or does the art make the audience happen?

A disclaimer: we had some technical issues with our connection, so please gloss over the edits and brief bouts of robot voice. Its worth it! After the interview, scroll down to see Sebastian’s project with Natalie Oleinik called Net Piece 1-Hometowns.
