COCOON

Cocoon forest

I am creating a movable place for children with different learning variations where they can take their time and connect to their body and mind. I am researching with hanging cocoons built by different materials, combining music, light and circus.

I have been working with kids and adults with learning disabilities the last two years in Sweden, both with art and circus. I have understood during my work that circus has a big possibility with this group of people. I have done different kind of workshops and realized that the circus tissue especially when made in a cocoon form has become a big success among the autistic kids. It makes them calmer and gives them a feeling of a own space and hole body. This is the starting point of my project. I am doing residencies and research during 2018-2019 and planing to have performance ready on the summer 2019.
