Anima

Joli Vyann are currently creating a new show called Anima. It will premiere at the Point, Eastleigh on May 16th.

Anima is Latin for breath, life and soul.  Joli Vyann’s new show explores the simple act of breathing in all its forms and how it connects us all. 

How does breath affect our emotions? Our physicality? Our very being? The performers push themselves to the limits of their physicality where breath is shared, breath is stolen and breath is forced. Using Joli Vyann’s unique blend of dance and acrobatics, Anima is about the delicate connection between two people breathing through an emotional roller coaster.  Anima features a live musician, using dance, circus, voice and wind instruments, allowing breath to literally become the soundscape for the performance.
