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
