International Solo Festival

Diabolo

Cine-Teatro Garrett, Sala Principal (Main Room)

Synopsis

Guillaume Karpowicz has been pushing diabolo to new horizons by going away from the tradition of circular diabolo. In a quest for necessity, the developed language is based on removing rather than adding up. He chooses bounces and lines as the core of his repertoire, which is animated by a strong rhythmical influence. He has recently developed an appreciation for new diabolo-related objects.
