About the Event
A unique blend of circus, visual art and poetry. A playful invitation to explore familiar spaces in unusual ways, Square 2.1 by acclaimed Tall Tales Company is a virtual circus performance.
Three jugglers, a visual artist and a warm poetic voice will take you on a tour of your own home. Guided from space to space, reminiscing on the beautiful memories you find there, this magical experience will leave you seeing your home in a completely new light.
Square 2.1 is the result of two years of research by visual artist Don Satijn and the jugglers of Tall Tales Company, gathered together in a series of short, enchanting scenes that take inspiration from the patterns of nature and our daily lives.
For an optimal experience you will need:
- A good internet connection
- A fully charged tablet, laptop or smartphone
- 45 minutes of your time
- Basic understanding of spoken English
After purchasing a ticket you will be emailed instruction and the access code to watch the show on the 7th of September, 09:00. You then have 72 hours to watch the performance in your own time.
