I Was Told.
Kathrin Wagner

Funny, confrontational, engaging and full of interaction with the audience. This characterizes 'I Was Told.', a performance by Kathrin Wagner in which she combines juggling with rings with spoken word. With her own written lyrics, she plays with and manipulates how the audience and she themselves see her as a woman and an artist on stage. With a touch of feminism and a good dose of honesty, Kathrin encourages the audience to think about those roles.

Kathrin Wagner is self-taught and discovered her passion for contemporary circus through the juggling community. Her original performance is based on personal experiences and stories of female colleagues. 'I Was Told.' was created with the support of Zirkus On, the German counterpart of Circunstruction. A disarming performance whose message will linger for a long time.
