Playful, didactic, beautiful and highly skilled, Natalie Inside Out is a unique collaboration between world-class hand-balancer Natalie Reckert and digital artist Mark Morreau, using technology and video projections to turn our conventional ideas of circus upside down and inside out. Literally.
Fusing circus and interactive technologies, Natalie and Mark playfully investigate the relationship between the actual and the mediatised body. Through a blend of live acrobatic performance, extreme close up slow-motion video, and spoken word, they take movement on stage and transform it into projected landscapes on screen, examining the ways in which digital media can interpret and represent the human body, whilst revealing its underlying mechanics, emotions and motivations.
Some of you may remember Outer Circle, the Berlin based circus that came to us in March - Natalie was the hand balancer in that!
