Jakob Lohmann is an artist from Germany, born in 1995. He discovered circus during his high school time where he joined the local youth circus. Finishing high school he continued to pursue his circus activities professionally at Codarts Circus Arts in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. During the 4 year degree he created various performances and started to find and develop his own artistic vision and style as performer.
Using floor acrobatics and balances as his main tools, his work thematises the actor/spectator relationship within the performative space.
"How can we challenge the established expectations and performance formats within circus to create art that goes beyond consumption and forces the spectator to take action as part of the development of the performance?"
