Two exclusive UK premieres in the air and on wire.
Pinta 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.
In Wiredo, with her body, a tightwire and a physical composition that draws on the Japanese art of Kinbaku (Shibari), Hanna Moisala 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, posing the question ‘what happens to the body when we choose to change our daily routine?’
