Elephants – They are mammals that are the largest living creatures on land today. Damage to habitat and hunting has reduced the current elephant population from a few million to a few hundred thousand. Elephants are quite social creatures and seem to be somewhat able to understand the meaning of death. The elephant is considered one of the most intelligent animals in nature and belongs to a small group of animals that identify themselves in the mirror, ie self-consciousness.
Pilim is a duet of dance and acrobatics, air and ground, two brothers.
Peace and quiet enable an intimate observation of the soul, which at first sight stands firm, but in fact hangs like a thin string of random reality, supporting and listening to each other.
Elephants, is a story about two, which distill their being into acrobatic movement skills and yet blur the boundary between the stage and the normal course of life.
Animal observation allows the audience a clean point of view from judgment between power and sensitivity and between instinct and emotion and gives us the opportunity to learn something about the being of the human animal.
The duet was created as part of a “circus close by” and supported by the ON Center for contemporary circus creation
