Toisin Sanoen (In Other Words) is a meditative performance in a minimalistic universe. It focuses on only one instrument: Wire. The four artists suspend and throw themselves on to steel wires, seek for a delicate balance and strive for control.
The qualities and features of the wire become visible, and so does the pain that it causes on the performers’ skin. Together the strong soundscapes, thoroughly contemplated visuals and artists’ movements create a touching body of work, compelling the audience to its grip.
