The receiver of the 2010 Sophie Hulthén Circus Grant:
Alexander Weibel Weibel
Motivation of the jury
Using his own invented discipline, the Multiple Slack Ropes, he is in search of new choreographic methods of re-shaping reality. The ropes create layers of both inward and outward space. This, combined with an evident musicality and feeling for the movement of body and objects, shows the strong potential for development in this most gifted artist. Through persistent research and poetic presence, he will move the circus art forward toward new forms of expressions. It is with great pleasure we present the 2010 Sophie Hulthén Grant to Alexander Weibel Weibel.
