Lazuz (to move in Hebrew) is a dynamic meeting between an Acrobat and a Juggler. Through their attempt to collaborate, they find the task not as easy as they thought. Dancing between collaboration and conflict, each of them tries to “move” the other one, pushing him out of his comfort zone. Sometimes playful - always exciting, often funny - this moving encounter reveals an unusual and awkward synergy.
Lazuz is an Israeli/ French/Swedish contemporary circus company created by Ron Beeri and Itamar Glucksmann. Through their personal approach Itamar and Ron try to push the contemporary circus art form to new technical and artistic achievements. Both are originally from Israel, and are based and have been professionally educated in France and Sweden (Le LIDO/DOCH). In their work they are merging influences both from the Nordic and the French approach to the art form.
Supported by Subtopia, the Company was founded in 2013 in Stockholm, when Itamar and Ron conducted an artistic study of the movement between a juggler and an acrobat. Based on the material that they developed in the course of their research, they created a short act, which they have performed in different venues. Inspired by the short act, they decided to work on the full-length piece, Lazuz. In November 2015 the project was pre-selected for circusnext. Since then Lazuz has been supported by La PACT (Le Lido and La Grainerie) in Toulouse and Espace Catastrophe in Brussels.
