Escape the chaos outside. Enter a mysterious world inside a great white shape-shifting tent by the sea.

Experience the ephemeral moments that exist between sunset and the arrival of dusk – the turning point at which the world morphs from day into night.

This graceful performance combines Ilona Jäntti’s innovative aerial acrobatics with Aino Venna’s dreamlike and organic musical score, with leitmotifs that echo through the decades. The tent appears to breathe; music is everywhere, natural as air, as you’re invited to explore the meeting point of exterior and interior, nature and culture.

Jäntti & Venna return after their sell-out run of Yablochkov Candle at Jacksons Lane for CircusFest 2018.

Part of Jacksons Lane's Made in Finland mini-season, showcasing the best, most entertaining contemporary Finnish performance.
