Twisting Estocolmo

Twisting the Balance in Stockholm is a performative experience that documents, from the spectacular view of circus, the meeting in Stockholm of a trapeze artist and a group of women of different origins, abilities, genres and realities. Together, they reflect on the concepts of power and resistance in relation to the bodies produced by society.

The trapeze is resignified in Twisting the Balance as a public, political and promiscuous space, where anyone can exercise their voice.

In this circus element the word takes fly, with the shame risk and danger as the
circus bodies are exposed.

In the process we understood that the trapeze makes us be present and take risks, but also listen and feel, enable dialogue, generate relationships and create community.

The trapeze as the art of not having your feet on the ground, makes us take off to think and roar.
