Contemporary Circus Performance (2014)

SAIVO

Plastic, metal, wood and man. Buildings go up and fall to dust and everything is in constant flux. This multidisciplinary contemporary circus piece dives into the eternal life of matter. This new production from the world’s northernmost contemporary circus group is inspired by folklore and mythology.

Saivo is the land of the dead in which residents live out their happy mirror-image afterlives.
