Expanding the possibilities
of performance

Suspended in the air, wrapped in the ropes above a trapeze bar that hangs from the ceiling, Erin, a white femme with no lower legs, splits her legs and smiles, just above the bar. Vanessa, a white woman, is upside down above Erin, hanging by one leg. The two wear outfits that match their skin and Erin’s has some red in it. Photo credit: Grim Photography

Vanessa Furlong and Erin Ball live in different provinces and have not been in the same space together since the end of 2019. They are used to creating in the same space, touching each other, moving together on the same aerial apparatus. Join them during their Lab Residency week as they explore their curiosities around technology and distance, to discover: can they find a way to create together while being apart?

LEGacy Circus’s Erin Ball and Vanessa Furlong will share several clips from their residency explorations and discuss the challenges and successes. There will be a brief Q&A in the chat on a Zoom webinar. The sharing will last approximately 1 hour. ASL interpretation and captioning will be available.
