Three professional circus artists perform endurances of single circus actions over several hours in a gallery setting. As the hours tick by, the initial virtuosity of the action is broken down and the artists in all their strength and fragility are revealed. All the while you, the visitor, are invited to stay with them and accompany them on their journey.
This series of performances blurs artform lines and raises questions about the context in which work is performed.
