In an odd and endearing performance the circus duo Acrojou travels around town in a rolling house they have created a unique mash-up of visual theatre, architecture and circus performance.
The ‘wheel house’, which has already wowed thousands of passers-by‚ is fully furnished with doors, windows, kitchen accessories, and a bed, existing in a topsy-turvy mobility, where the act - dressed as travellers, repeatedly climb over each other to build up momentum. It may be a very unpractical home (it’s just as well it doesn’t have a bathroom), but we like how it plays with the idea of compact living space.
The video of their performance in motion can be seen below. It adds a whole new meaning to feeling home-sick don’t you think?!
