Up in the Air - The UNKNOWN

Upstream and Breaking Circus present the video series Up in the Air, exploring the "Unknown" created during collaborative workshops in October 2021.

The concept of “The Unknown” is not an avoidance of commitment to an idea, but rather a confrontation of the conditions presented to performing artists by the pandemic.  As philosopher-mystic Jiddu Krishnamurti noted “One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.”  This collective experience of grappling with the new realities presented by the pandemic is the conceptual starting point for this series of explorations between a diverse range of improvising musicians and circus artists.

This is the first of 14 videos created by 16 participants.

In this video:

Evan Syliboy - Electric Guitar

Linshan Sui - Guzheng 

Aiyana Graham - Silks

AV recording and editing - Dario Lozano-Thornton
