Confines is my first solo performance, started as graduation work at Lahti Circus School, continued researching after graduation in May 2015. The focus of the show is in combining aerial acrobatics and movement with visual art and poetry in order to share a story of a person in search for her true self.
Layer by layer, Confines peels off the sham, digs into the rotten debris and finds the greatest beauty suppressed to the shame. To see all the colours hidden so well, to hear all the words, whispered so still.
