Anna Krazy "All Strings Attached " (EST)
2nd October 18:00 @ Sakala 3
Idea and Creation:
Anna Kristin McCarthy (Peterson)
Duration: 30 minutes
"All Strings Attached" is a contemporary streetshow that involves acrobatics, dance, contortion, visual theatre elements and power of word. It involves the audience in a unique way, captures their attention and leaves them wondering where all the time suddenly went. The whole show is a reminder to know that everyone is vulnerable and we are all in the same boat, going through similar fears and doubts. We need to be all in in the relationships to people close to us but also to people on the streets. The story is told by using connecting strings between people, by performing a powerful acrobatic dance routine and creating a crazy finale where Anna Krazy falls in to the hands of 6 volunteers. Expressing that we need to trust each other and believe that if we fall, we will have support.
