Chinese Pole
act images act video
The simple yet powerful image of one woman and one pole is the setting for an original and contemporary piece of new circus. 'Echo' is about something that pulls you, that keeps coming back, and finally turning round to hear it. In this piece Tanya draws from Chinese pole techniques, subtle elements of theatre and dance, mixing sensuality with strength. In a beautiful and haunting way she brings a strong feminine slant to a traditionally male piece of circus apparatus.
