I am crumbling away and forming myself over and over again, constantly changing my shape. I am searching for what I am and for the power that is recasting me, remoulding me, transforming me. Drifting, from time to time, I stick to glass.

"Changeover is challenge and it is essential" - D.H.Meadows

Fish Eye offers a vision of nature-technology fusion. Inspired by nature, humans create technology as a "second nature.” Movement is generated from technical elements. A waterscape of plastic coral reefs floats here, full of constantly transforming beings who adamantly try to evolve towards sustainable forms. 

Fish Eye is a circus performance at the intersections of dance, plastic art, fashion and installation in the ultrasound of deep-sea creatures.

Audience: adult, children 8+
