I was hanging there tangled, framed and limited
I was rolled on and over, spinning in and out,

"Up to this Point" is researching connection points between the practices of three circus artists: everybody is looking for their artistic way in harsh
conditions. What do their bodies feel and how do they change? What influence do thechanges in the body have on the psyche and vice a versa, how do thoughts surface on the bodies?

Contemporary circus company “Taigi Cirkas” formed in 2016. Currently their company consists of two artists Konstantin Kosovec and Elena Kosovec and different collaborative artists from Lithuania and abroad. The main purpose of the group is to tell a honest and very personal story using circus disciplines. Laconically and in a simple way. The 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).
