Joren De Cooman is a performing artist in the performance Carrying My Father by the Leuven circus company There There Company.

This acrobatic performance is about carrying and being carried. About holding on and letting go. About fragile strength and playful rivalry. Four circus performers share the stage with their fathers. These eight men meet and test each other, and eventually lift each other up. We see eight bodies that aren’t equally strong, but equally powerful in their individuality and interaction. They discover the challenges of growing older and the richness of working together. Central to this is the realization: the father carried the son as a child, and one day the son will carry the father.
