What is it?
See two exclusive UK premieres in the air and on wire as part of CircusFest 2016. At Jacksons Lane in north London on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th April there will be a circus double bill featuring Pinta by Zero Gravity and WHS, and WireDo by Hanna Moisala.
Pinta by Zero Gravity and WHS is an exceptional solo performance focusing on vertical rope acrobatics, performed by aerial acrobat Salla Hakanpää and directed by Ville Walo. Pinta creates magical images of weightlessness in a dialogue between the body and the object, the air and water. An intensive duet between the artist and the rope, this is a remarkable play of light, liquid and image in a captivating spectacle of beauty.
With her body, a tightwire and a physical composition that draws on the Japanese art of Kinbaku (Shibari), Hanna Moisala’s WireDo, tells a gripping story of stepping out of one’s comfort zone. With its three-dimensional view and daring combination of Kinbaku and the tightwire, WireDo explores the inner balance of human behaviour, with the question “what happens to the body when we choose to change our daily routine?”
The double bill is part of CircusFest 2016 which runs from 2nd to 24th April.
