Hugo Bergman

Between me and a hard place


Shortlisted 2020-2021


The title of the project ’Between me and a hard place’ comes from an English expression (“between a rock and a hard place”) that means to be stuck in a dilemma. It also describes a ‘hard’ place, a difficult place. The show is a tribute to nature in its primitive form. Hugo Bergman leads us through a raw, cold and timeless world, exploring the “sensation of nature” and the solitude, helplessness, nakedness it carries. Through his artistic vocabulary, inspired by simple and small things, Hugo Bergman shares on stage his personal perspective of contemporary circus.
