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

There's a moment right between sunset and dusk – blink and you'll miss it. This is the turning point from day to night. This is the setting for Ballantine Scale.

In this one-of-a-kind meeting of sound and spectacle, Finnish pop icon Aino Venna performs a dreamlike soundtrack while Ilona Jantti (The Stage: "aerial expert") twists and transforms through the air.

Jacksons Lane's auditorium becomes a gigantic shape-shifting tent that billows and breathes; close your eyes and you're by the sea; music is everywhere, natural as air.

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.
