In Chaim, acrobatics and classical singing meet. Both are a form of physical virtuosity, controlled by breath. The performance is created to the rhythm of a breath. Breath becomes voice, becomes movement, becomes music. Three performers on stage – a vocalist, a circus artist and a young acrobat.
Breathing: an automatic biological process that keeps us alive. The thriving force behind our vital functions, our voice, our movement. The connection between human beings and other breathing creatures, and even the entire ecological system. A good respiration can heal us, make us stronger, enhance the potential of our body. Breathing is a powerful, yet so fragile physiological system, not nearly as self-evident as we think. Only when our breath is taken away, we realize its value.
Time for an ode! An ode to breath.
