Gangewifre 2013

available for booking / indoor / outdoor / site-specific / stage work

Gangewifre is a project that transforms its shape according to the venue. It is like a living organism, a weave of thin ropes that cross each other like a net and create an illusion of weightlessness. Jäntti has previously performed versions of this piece at festival Teatro a Corte in Turin, Botanical Garden of Palanga in Lithuania, at Circus Village in Norway and at Cirko festival in Helsinki.
