Imbalance by Joli Vyann


Please note this event is taking place at the Exeter Phoenix. 

Fusing dance and circus, in a collaboration with internationally renowned Choreographer Jonathan Lunn, Joli Vyann present Imbalance.

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?
