Epifónima

Seven women circus artists highlight and honor the courage and values necessary to bring about change.

About Epi´fónima

Epifónima, which means ”exclamation” in Greek, is a natural extension of Tilde Björfors’ productions Borders, Limits and Movements, all centered around the themes of boundaries, limitations and migration.

The production’s music was composed by Rebekka Karijord, who previously wrote the music for Cirkus Cirkör’s Wear it like a crown. The composition will primarily build on rhythms and women’s voices that Rebekka has gathered from the four corners of the earth and that will be blended with the ensemble’s own voices.

Reviews

… the gentle and enveloping feeling that encompasses all of us is difficult to resist and is anything but a separatist experience in this circular circus creation with a big beating heart.

SVD

.. a pulsating communal rhythm is found, and all in all there are many beautiful moments, enveloped by Rebekka Karijord's music, which makes one’s heart swell.

DN

It's creative, beautiful, often unexpected. The acts seamlessly slide into each other.A collective masterpiece of art
