Photos: work-in-progress “AVoid” by Marina Cherry


We were happy to have Marina Cherry and her work-in-progress “AVoid” at Rīgas Cirks art-residence. Created and performed by Marina Cherry with the artistic direction being lead by Brandon Lagaert, “AVoid” is an interdisciplinary project between acro-dance, contortion, contemporary dance and physical theatre.

This project is born from Marina’s fascination with solitude, contradictions, alienation and the impact of rapidly developing society in the face of digitalisation. The common point being the concept hikikomori – the withdrawal into seclusion, a particular condition in Japanese society where people avoid social contact to an extreme level. Shutting oneself in.
