We all breathe from the moment we are born to the moment we die, it’s a universal shared experience. Joli Vyann’s new show Anima portrays the delicate connection between two people and takes us on a journey, from the cradle to the grave, through an intimate look at the simple, yet constant, act of breathing.
How does breath affect our emotions? Our physicality? Our very being? The two performers and a live Taiko drummer push themselves to the limits of their physicality - using dance, circus, voice and wind instruments - their breath literally becomes the soundscape for the performance - in a unique blend of dance and acrobatics.
Anima is co-commissioned by The Point, Eastleigh.
