Each of us is constantly changing…

The performance “STAV” points to the issue of a woman who is going through her “life path”. Time is running and she is changing in every moment.Who was she at the beginning ? Who is she now ? What comes after ? 

The story of “STAV” is communicated live by the acrobat through her movement art focused on animal movement and aerial acrobatics on rope. The performance can include spectators who like risk and imagery, as well as spectators who are looking for inspiring stories for their own lives. The performance should enrich the program of new circus and theater festivals and raise awareness of the performing arts.
