Cie Ea Eo was founded in 2008 by Bram Dobbelaere, Sander De Cuyper, Jordaan De Cuyper and Eric Longequel. Their debut performance M2 [square meter] was first performed in 2009 and features 4 jugglers who try to co-exist on an ever shrinking stage, which leads to both cooperation and hostility among them. This innovative performance, with its strongly physical group juggling, became a long-term success and took the group all over the world. They still perform it to this day. For their new creation All the Fun [is happening somewhere else – which will premiere at the PerplX festival [formerly Humorologie] in Kortrijk – Belgium in late June of 2015, they added Neta Oren to the group and investigated themes like weakness, ugliness and proximity. Circuspunt interviewed them after a work in progress performance during Smells like Circus in Ghent in January of 2015.
