Joli Vyan used funding and space provided by Lab:time to “explore the fusion of circus techniques and dance”
"We discovered that there is a huge possibility of mixing release dance technique with acrobatics. We discovered that fluidity of dance can enhance acrobatics and the power and excitement of acrobatics can enhance dance. We continued the discovery of our individual movement style.
The week of R and D helped us hugely in the creation of our new outdoor show H2H, which we have just finished making. This enhanced our experience of fusing dance and acrobatics. What we discovered about fusing dance release techniques and acrobatics in that R and D was very helpful for our creation process. We were also able to develop some of the material we created during this R and D to put in the final show.”
