Footnotes is a performance of physical and spatial illusion based on Ilona Jäntti’s MA Choreography thesis research at Laban Centre.

“You forget the floor exists. She is gentle, subtle and funny, captivating us with a raised eyebrow, even when she’s upside down.” – Theatre Bristol

“We held our breath as she hung high above the stage with only her extended leg touching the bar and holding her up. A collective sigh of relief went through the audience when her feet returned to the stage.”  – Charleston Paper (USA)
