'I met Imogen through a video she uploaded to the internet titled Dying Handstands. In it she performed handstands that collapsed, melted and died. This video, which was different from other handstands videos that demonstrate control or power, evoked in me the question: What do you do with a technical skill after you've worked your entire life to achieve it and how can you make art with it?
Our joint work gave birth to a series of choreograghic experiments/ circus numbers in which technique and technology mirror each other. Together, we try to understand the magic of handstands, their limits and to reimagine what they could be'.
