Hold On is the working title for our latest performance project ... a creative exploration of circus and digital, in partnership with Google Creative Lab.
Circus is all about the physical and the immediate; it's about finding balance, maintaining contact, navigating risk and holding on.
We're working with the super clever and very fun team at Google Creative Lab to explore how circus can interact with new technologies in a way that takes it's reach beyond devices and screens, and looks at how audiences, performers and digital can start a new dialogue that enhances our experience of performance.
It is always exciting to work with creative organizations like Vulcana Women's Circus. They are the best kind of partners, open-minded, energetic and fun to hang out with. Together we are exploring the spaces in-between phones and performance, between digital and circus to see what magic might happen where they meet.
