Footprint in the Snow

Laura Moy
UK

Footprint in the Snow  is the debut solo performance by circus artist Laura Moy.

Laura shared a 20 minute work-in-progress at The Place’s Resolution Festival.

Drawing on her own surreal experience of touring as an aerialist in contemporary circus; a space of precision, control, beauty & suspended reality whilst facing the daily disorientation of debilitating traumatic grief.

The unexpected loss of a loved one can often leave the bereaved feeling silenced & isolated.  In grief we can be altered and the landscape we inhabit unrecognisable, attempting to navigate it can sometimes feel impossible and there are no words.

Footprint in The Snow  is a deeply personal story that attempts to acknowledge what grief is and recognise the toll it can take.

When hanging by an elbow 6 metres in the air, for Laura, that was the only space that felt safe.

Footprint in The Snow  is produced by Split Second
