107 Ways to Deal with Pressure 

In this show there will be three of us in a small space.


Too small for us.
Under pressure.


Pressure relates to circus mentally but also physically – the contraction of muscles, the squeeze of the silks in a complicated wrap, tension and release, the weight of a body, flying, floating, exploding.


What is the physical embodiment of mental pressure? How do we deal with it, how does it make us move? Can we use it to our benefit? Is it only in our heads or does it come from outside?


We prepared a list of how to deal with all this pressure.
We don’t know what to choose.


Maybe number 19, escaping?
Or number 101, faking an illness?

This show is a tool to talk about pressure. Feelings of stress and pressure are part of being human - everyone experiences them. Unreachable expectations, stress, burnouts - in modern day life these factors are treated as normal. What's more, the situation in the world, the pandemic, climate change, and all kinds of uncertainty in our lives only pile on more pressure on top of personal problems. It seems impossible to live these days without a constant feeling of pressure

.

That's why it is important to talk about these topics publicly so that we can avoid more serious problems in the future and break the stigma of sharing these kinds of things. We want to help the audience realize they are not alone, and equip them with ways to deal with pressure, to use it as a source of strength and inspiration instead of something that makes us weak.
