The motivation for Equinox was the creation of an act that breaks stereotypes on the typical movements and role of male and female. This was done through exploration of opposing elements that unite for a brief moment: air-ground, male-female, static-dynamic, life-death. The meeting point is where those elements are equal, hence the term ‚Equinox‘. The act is a physical manifestation of this meeting point and what occurs before and after. All movements in this act have been originally developed by the artists.
We invented level straps due to the desire of performing solo straps as a duo. Two sets of straps are rigged at two different heights to the same rigging plate, which makes it possible to explore unprecedented movements using the centrifugal force to perform solo straps tricks together in orbit.
