WireDo is being performed as part of Refract:19, Trafford’s 10-day arts festival, which is now in its third year.
Presented by Lumo Company, WireDo explores the human senses, combining the techniques of tightwire walking and Shibari. Bold, daring and gripping.
Shibari is an ancient Japanese art form that involves tying oneself up with ropes. The piece is a daring spectacle of tightwire stunts combined with the Japanese rope art of Shibari.
Using her body, a tightwire and the ancient Japanese art of Shibari – Hanna Moisala’s WireDo, tells the captivating story of stepping out of the familiar and into the unknown.
With its three-dimensional view, WireDo explores the inner balance of human behaviour with the question “what happens to the body when it chooses to surrender and be manipulated?”
