Taigi Cirkas "Up to this Point" (LT,LV)
Work in progress performance
2nd October 19:00 @ Sakala 3
Idea and Creation:
Elena Kosovec, Konstatin Kosovec, Aleksey Smolov
Duration: 30 min
Contemporary circus show “Up to this point” is a collaboration between circus artists
Konstantin Kosovec (Lithuania), Elena Kosovec (Lithuania) and Aleksey Smolov (Latvia) and
producer Jānis Laucenieks (Latvia).
The artists are researching connection points between three
circus artists’ practices: everybody is looking for their artistic way in harsh
conditions. What do their bodies feel and how do they change? What influence do the
changes in the body have on the psyche and vice a versa, how do thoughts surface
on the bodies? What happens when all three creators, each unique in its way with
their loyal circus prop, gather in one space?
I was hanging there tangled, framed and limited
I was rolled on and over, spinning in and out,
Bruised and healed, crushed and resurrected
With breath taken
and heart lost
