Kolja Huneck




Shortlisted 2020-2021


CM_30 is minimalistic circus – a contemplative walk through the world of colors. The solo piece by the circus artist Kolja Huneck invites you to intensely perceive a fleeting universe. Together with the audience, a synaesthetic color bath is created between contemporary circus and installation art. Poetic juggling is the painting tool in an airy room that is acoustically filled by the compositions created by Rutger Zuydervelt. With CM_30 Kolja Huneck questions the traditional expectations towards circus and juggling and lets the boundary between audience and artist dissolve. Can a circus performance facilitate falling asleep? The title CM_30 symbolizes the size of the props, various discs and lamps, each 30cm in diameter.
