Joli Vyann: Imbalance

Tour Ready

Integrating exciting acrobatic skills with athletic dance in an energetic and thought-provoking performance that explores our obsessive dependence with technology, asking whether our lives are ‘in’ or ‘out’ of balance?

It is rare nowadays not to ‘log in’ at every opportunity- the breakfast table, nights out with friends, even in bed! How well connected are you? When and how do we separate ourselves from the virtual chaos surrounding us?

"Joli Vyann pushes aside the boundaries between acrobatics and dance with a graceful and elegant show...with intelligence and impressive skill"
Lyn Gardner - The Guardian

“this lyrical acrobalance piece inspired by mobile phones is compellingly laced with gentle irony and a darker side” The Stage
