After years of research in his most recently developed discipline and a four month creation Carlos will premiered his first solo piece on August 27, 2021 in Pfefferberg Theater in Berlin.

“STICK TO ME” is the coming together of two entities, who could not be more different from one another. Carlos Zaspel, the artist, and his 'partner', a flexible fiberglass sticklike rod, embark on a journey into the highs and the lows of human disability.

STICK TO ME was developed and directed by Carlos Zaspel and Chris Jäger. This 40-minute solo piece of contemporary circus explores the dynamics in relationships of people with depression. It is with strength, empathy and an admirably developed artistic ability that Carlos Zaspel undertakes such an unusual artistic theme by shedding light on one of the great problems of today.
