MOMENTUM

By Women's Circus

Co-commissioned by Arts Centre Melbourne and Metro Tunnel Creative Program

As part of Alter State Festival

A simple shift can initiate momentum, an energy, revealing connection between all of us and the power we all possess to create change.

Every one of us is on a journey that begins with us – and ends with us. Connecting, disconnecting, reconnecting; every person we meet and every place we go changes us. Momentum delves into a world of seemingly unconnected individuals and events, in a place that is governed by the unavoidable and constant cycles of time and change.

A public, site-specific circus performance, Momentum invites the audience to take a journey, experiencing moments of connectedness, change and possibility.
