Summary/Abstract: Water on Mars is a circus production which, according to Grzegorz Kondrasiuk, is part of the "new circus" movement. This is the name given to pieces that verge on performative arts, shows, and circuses. Water on Mars is created by a trio of very young yet highly regarded jugglers. The technical skill displayed under the pretext of mere tricks allows the artists not only to juggle "anything" "infinitiely," but also to wander among the crowd and ask: What is a juggler, and what is he for? The text focuses not only on this performance, but also on the contemporary circus and its place among the other arts.
