Sweat & Ink

Spectacle-Sweatandink

Sweat & Ink is an exploration of memory and relationships through acrobatic metaphorfour humans wrestle with their own imperfections and limitations as they rub against the rough edges of memory’s fallibility.

Would perfect memory lead to perfect happiness, or can there be grace in our imperfection, beauty in our struggle as we tumble through life’s challenges?

Beautiful, messy, painful and funny, it is a show to make you gasp, cry, laugh and wonder.
