How does breath affect our emotions? Our physicality? Our very being? The performers push themselves to the limits of their physicality where breath is shared, breath is stolen and breath is forced. Using Joli Vyann’s unique blend of dance and acrobatics, Anima is about the delicate connection between two people breathing through an emotional roller coaster. Anima features a live musician, using dance, circus, voice and wind instruments, allowing breath to literally become the soundscape for the performance.
Anima is co-commissioned by The Point, Eastleigh.
