ABOUT THE PIECE

"It is fluid but sturdy. it sings beautifully or breaks into a thousand pieces. Can cut my foot and still I want to walk on it"

The GlasShow is based on the interest to research the different and paradoxical characteristics of the material glass: fragil but sturdy, smouth but cutting, transparent, stable, etc.. Jeanine balances on glass bottles and manipulates glass
balls while Caleb works with an installation of glass instruments. The light effects
create prisms on stage.
