Estonian Circus Sabok works under the title “Don’t leave me hanging” with beauty as an endless movement. The question they are asked during their residency at DYNAMO is whether we are able to find peace, the state of equilibrium, the place on one’s shoulders where the balance turns into silence?
The project is in its final phase and culminates at DYNAMO with a pre-premiere on February 22nd.
The group consists of two circus artists and a musician who together want to explore the harmony we call inner peace. To dare to take the leap is not only about courage and acceptance of the opportunity to fail, but about trusting your surroundings. They work together to create a foundation of trust, making it easier to overcome their own fears.
“Don’t leave me hanging” creates a world where we focus on the moment. We explore our similarities and how diversity can work together. “Don’t leave me hanging” emphasizes the gentle beautiful and fragile aspects of the circus body as a medium.
