Cirkus Cirkör’s new performance Epifónima finds its inspiration in women’s voices, endeavors, ways of creating and organizing themselves.
Seven women circus artists highlight and honor the courage and values necessary to bring about change. Epifónima, which means ”exclamation” in Greek, is a natural extension of Tilde Björfors’ recent productions Borders, Limits and Movements, all centered around the themes of boundaries, limitations and migration.
The right to a voice
The production’s music will be composed by Rebekka Karijord, who previously wrote the music for Cirkus Cirkör’s Wear it like a crown. The composition will primarily build on rhythms and women’s voices that Rebekka has gathered from the four corners of the earth and that will be blended with the ensemble’s own voices.
Limitations and boundaries
Epifónima is a natural extension of Tilde Björfors’ recent productions Borders, Limits and Movements, all centered around the themes of boundaries, limitations and migration.
In Epifónima the ensemble will work across boundaries as co-creators together with the creative team behind the production. The performance is an all-embracing artwork created by everyone involved. The ensemble consists of seven women circus artists with roots in Canada, Greece, Palestine, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland.
