Atlas 2019

available for booking / for the whole family / indoor / stage work

Atlas is a family-friendly mix of contemporary circus, animation and architecture that combines Ilona Jäntti’s aerial acrobatics with Tuula Jeker’s projections. The suprising performance paints a picture about understanding and perceiving the world: how directions and scales change when some element is in an unexpected position. At the same time, Atlas is a story about fleeting yet meaningful encounters from the far reaches of space to the depths of the seas.
