Solo Exhibition

»Like a Bird«

Johanna-Maria Fritz

Iran, Afghanistan, Palestine, Dagestan, Indonesia and Rajasthan in India – regions that are in their difficult political situation. But their inhabitants have developed a circus culture.

Johanna-Maria Fritz talks about political clowns in Gaza, whose performance reflects the absurdity of life on the front line between the poor and the Isreal army, and about circus schools that give Afghan children an alternative route. It shows the old traditions of tightrope walking in the North Caucasus and a circus in Iran, which spreads friends and fun despite Islamic dictatorship. The Serpent Swords of Rajasthan performed the art of their grandfathers theater or theater from Indonesia.

The title „Like a Bird“ takes the testimony of a little boy about his circus life and stands for the essence of the work.
