Performances

Krilakrila, my first circus creation and performance executed in 2004, an aerial circus project which forms part of my thesis for the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana, gained me the Prešeren Student’s Award in 2005.


Since graduating from the Circus Academy Centre National des Arts du Cirque in Chalons en Champagne, France, in 2008, the range and number performances I collaborate in has widened, and includes work with artists globally to promote innovative, experimental circus.


There are two current shows/performances in the offer as well as solo and duo acts suitable for various events, such as business conferences, opening events, weddings.


SOLO AND DUO AERIAL ACTS

SOLO ACTS are aerial performances of between four and fifteen minutes long using aerial silks and elastic aerial hammocks accompanied with live or recorded music.




DUO ACTS are collaborations with different aerial artists. We offer duo aerial silk performances as well as combination of various aerial accessories of between five and fifteen minutes long accompanied with live or recorded music.



Technical requirements 

Stable, flat surface, 7 m x 16 m, for installation of self-standing structure to facilitate aerial choreography; time necessary for construction and deconstruction is 90 mins in total; we need no assistance.

CONTEMPORARY CIRCUS AND DANCE PERFORMANCES

MIR OR

Concept and performance

Authors/performers:

- Dana Auguštin,choreography on aerial elastic hammock, aerial silks and on the ground; music;

- Kaja Lin Avguštin,choreography on the ground.


Mir Or is a reflection of the golden calmness that resides within all of us.

In the silence of the day, a shadow arose from the depths. She sat beside me, spoke a language without words, but movements. Touching every part of my soul she opened many worlds within me, from the deep darkness to shining peaks.

Infinite are our potentials…what are we all capable of?


The performance combines acrobatic dance on aerial elastic hammock and silks with dance on the ground into poetic story where the movement on the ground interferes with the one in the air. It is suitable for all ages. Duration is cca 25min.

SOMIRU

Concept and performance

Authors/performers:

- Dana Auguštin, choreography on aerial elastic hammock, aerial silks and on the ground;

- Thierno Diallo, score, double bass, electric bass.


Somiru, our contemporary circus performance, innovatively and experimentally melds  ground and aerial movement with live music through the telling of its eponymous protagonist's story.


Somiru, travelling through worlds, discovers substance and sound, is gently touched and gently touches, communicates, always learns and always moves on. Somiru's journey is our's; womb emerged, we encounter many beings, experience of every type, singing and dancing our life stories, leaving memories and impressions in the wake.


Somiru's story, told in five minutes shy of half an hour, can be performed in daytime's natural light or in dark/night spaces.
