Animal Religion

Launched in 2012
Based in Barcelona, Spain

A performance group bringing together contemporary circus, dance and music to create works inspired by animal instinct and religion. The principal members are Niklas, born in Finland, who turns his hand to many things – acrobatics, tap dancing, juggling, magic, piano and musical compositions – and circus school graduate Quim, born in Spain who is also a searcher of clowns, percussion, astronomy and the movements of animals among other things. Their focus being the strange habits we constantly repeat in modern life, the pair will attempt to make the audience aware of the wildness and absurdness inside them. In 2013, the group won the Prize Zirkolika for the best emerging artistic circus in Catalonia.
At Aichi Triennale 2016, they will perform in Toyohashi their work Chicken Legz in a reconstructed form, a thought-provoking outdoor work featuring acrobatics that they performed on farms in Spain and several other countries to great acclaim in 2014.
