A bold new collaboration between Counterpilot and Flipside Circus. Statum uses tricksy technologies to amplify, zoom in, splice open and reveal entirely new perspectives on moments of virtuosic physical performance.

On average we produce around 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day. Our lives are edited, recorded and uploaded.

Inspired by a series of techno-circus experiments, Statum explores the interplay between human bodies and technology – audiences are invited to inhabit performer’s bodies, analyse their heart rate, and explore the space between acrobats and the digital in this astounding re-imagining of movement and circus.

Step inside a stranger and take a look around, this is going to get personal.

“Engaging and unique… should be applauded for their creativity and innovation”
Luisa Ryan, Scenestr

A technically complex piece… a Mesmerising integration of circus, data and video…
- Catherine Lawrence, Creative Futures

“Definitely worth the standing ovation!” 
- Christie Campbell, IMHO
