Vincent Kollar currently works as a performer, as part of collective projects and is also an avid teacher and rigger. He is an expert of the art of Meteor manipulation, an ancient Chinese circus discipline. His performative work is based on a rich hybridity of circus and dance skills, a great attention to detail and a very natural/organic sense of presence and choreography. His presence fills the stage with a lot of energy and pure passion.
Being one of few, outside China, developing his own technique, and probably the best in his contemporary approach to the Meteor, Vincent has pushed, explored and set the boundaries in manipulating and juggling this traditional Chinese circus object.
Since his circus education (seven years of circus studies, culminating in a graduation from CODARTS) Vincent has been creating a series of short performances and full-length pieces, engaging with themes such as risk taking, control, sustainability, as well as experimenting with different elements such as fire, water and other liquids. He is also founder and member of Collective Penguin Production and Pile en Face. Over the last years, he has not only joined circus productions, but also collaborated with dance companies, musicians, composers and an opera. Vincent is as amazing as you are, has lots of skills, worked with relevant people, in relevant projects and knows how to sell himself.
As you can see his text does not finish with opera “dot”
