Ensemble Aerials

In her wok within ensembles and compagnies, Jana Korb is searching for interdisciplinarity and transcendation of traditional borders: by combining physical theater with circus arts, dance with aerials and new media…
Thus she creates deep, condensed and touching theater pieces – using aerial arts as her physical expression and narrative.
Her world of aerial theater is painfully human, is about personal dreams and examines pure emotions.

Literature Acrobatics
with a story by Franz Kafka
A trapeze artist had so arranged her life that she never came down from her trapeze by night or day. For railway journeys – as a wretched alternative to her usual way of living – she had to pass the time up on the luggage rack.
But one day, she decided that one trapeze was not enough – she from now on needed two trapezes. “Only the one bar in my hands—how can I go on living!”

Literature Acrobatics with Anja Gessenhardt (ca. 10min), ground space min. 4m x 2m



The aerial repertoire of Jana Korb comprises of both independent productions and also joint co-operation with larger companies and emsembles. Her oldest co-operation is within Trapeze Duo Sirius. Furthermore she was involved in the productions of Trapeztheater Daumenkino and Hang10.
