Academic music meets contemporary circus in performance “Confines” on Tuesday, April 10 at 19:00 at Art Centre ZUZEUM, 101 Lāčplēša Street, Riga.
Duration: 40 minutes

The performance “Confines” is a co-creation by Estonian aerial artist Grete Gross and Latvian musicians Ēriks Kiršfelds and Ventis Zilberts. The performance combines circus, visual art, poetry, and the music of distinguished composer Arvo Pärt. “Confines” tells a story of the journey of learning to accept and love oneself.

From delving into suppressed feelings such as anger, shame and pain, and then accepting them, layer by layer it peels off the disguises, digs into the rotten debris and finds the greatest beauty suppressed by shame. To see all the colours hidden so well, to hear all the words, whispered so still. And then – tabula rasa, finding oneself at a new beginning, then finally covering the white canvas with all the colours of life.

Nominations: Estonian Theatre Award 2016, category of United Performance Art
Residencies: Sansusi Festival, Cirkör LAB, Jatka 78

The performance in Riga on April 10 will be a unique chance to see “Confines” accompanied by recognized classical music performers – cellist Ēriks Kiršfelds and pianist Ventis Zilberts.
