Hands Up

I met Imogen through a video she uploaded to the internet titled Dying Handstands. In it she performed handstands that collapsed, melted and died. This video evoked in me the question: What do you do with a technical skill after you've worked your entire life to achieve it and how can you make art with it?

Our joint work gave birth to a series of choreograghic experiments/ circus numbers in which technique and technology mirror each other. Together, we try to understand the magic of handstands, their limits and to reimagine what they could be.
