INSIDE is a socially critical circus fairy tale. "The Kreuzberger Köckenberger shows a contemporary Rapunzel interpretation about outer and inner borders, ...with not only aesthetic but also political touches." Andreas Schäfer in "memo-media". In the solo piece INSIDE, new circus art meets the old art of storytelling. This very own "Berlin" style with its mixture of aerial acrobatics, balancing acts and fakirism is an absurd, breathless and personal piece.

LaMule Cirque was founded in 2016 by Thibault Gouin and Leila Köckenberger with the aim of combining circus art and social circus. Both are professionally trained circus and performance artists who have performed internationally for many years with their own companies and shows. Since its foundation, LaMule Cirque e.V. has been planning social circus projects and implementing them locally and internationally. Leila studied circus and performance art art Acapa (Tilburg, NL) where she developed the "aerial plastic". She is co-founder of the music/circus collective "cirque du Platzak" and the women's combo "compagnie les triplettes"; she has worked solo and created for international companies (e.g. petri dish, B) in combination with dance and theatre. In her work she remains in search of how to combine content with form.
