Rosa will spend this residency to work on the performance Risto.
About the performance
The show “Risto” is a duo performance played in the form of a solo show. It’s an ode to an extraordinary partner and on stage people can see an unconventional relationship between a juggler and her juggling object. In a residency circus artist Rosa Autio will do artistic research with the themes of loneliness, the longing for people and the difficulties of working alone as a solo artist. The show combines circus, object manipulation, physical theatre and clowning. The plan is to create new material for the project and develop and deepen the already existing ones.
