I was hanging there
tangled, framed and limited
I was rolled on and over, spinning in and out,
Bruised and healed, crushed and resurrected
With breath taken
and heart lost
About the show
“Up to this Point” by Taigi Cirkas is researching connection points between the practices of three circus artists: each of them is finding their artistic way in harsh conditions. How do their bodies change, how does it affect their mental state? How do their thoughts translate to their bodies?

About the company
Contemporary circus company “Taigi Cirkas” was formed in 2016 in Vilnius, Lithuania. It’s name can be loosely translated from Lithuanian as “But it’s circus” – meaning that it is something that doesn’t have to be explained. Currently the company consists of three artists – Konstantin Kosovec (Lithuania), Elena Kosovec (Lithuania) and Aleksey Smolov (Latvia). The main purpose of the group is to tell honest stories emerging from their individual and collective experiences using circus disciplines as a medium to share and connect.
