CHRISTINE DAIGLE AND ŠPELA VODEB
20:00, Miaouli Square
Two women attempting to grasp a fleeting moment. Through a constant readjusting of a brittle tension, together they unravel the inner workings of a delicate balance. In this balance comes into play the intricate sound of the vibrating strings of Dalès. Passing swiftly from circus to dance, from basing to flying, from performance to life.
