Gasworks Arts Park and One Fell Swoop Circus Present

Sensory Decadence

“Exceptional humans pushing the limits of their art.” The West Australian

The experiencing self | The remembering self.

The experiencing self lives each moment and the remembering self constructs the story afterwards.

We overwhelmingly value remembering over experiencing. What would happen if the experiencing self were triumphant?

In a celebration of sensation, five circus artists pursue the ecstatic, immediate completeness of experience through exhilarating and contemporary circus. Behold the physicality of superb athletes creating beautiful imagery with the souls of poets.

One Fell Swoop Circus bring their trademark acrobatic style to bear on what Nobel-prize winning economist Daniel Kahneman calls the two selves – the experiencing self that lives each moment and the remembering self, that constructs the story afterwards. We overwhelmingly value the remembering self over the experiencing self – a screech at the end of a symphony ruins the whole experience. Drawing on influences from ASMR videos to the surrealist game of exquisite corpse – the One Fell Swoop acrobats explore a world where the experiencing self is triumphant.

One Fell Swoop Circus is proud to be the company-in-residence at Gasworks Arts Park in 2019.
