Start with a circle. Continue outwards. Keep going. Stop, start over. Start with a circle. This time work inwards. Good, start again. Making progress? Getting lost? Yes. Start again.
In a darkened space, a performer approaches a rope hanging from above. At the end of the rope hangs the only source of light in the space, a glowing sphere.
Created by Jack Phelan and Erin Hermosa, with musical direction by Dunk Murphy (Sunken Foal), Start with a Circle throws an aerial performer, an ingénieur and a composer into the void and presses the button.
Rope swings, light flickers, body turns, sound builds. An obsessive study of potential through neon-noir nothingness. Sure you wanna do this?
Contains strobe lighting.
