BLUEBERRY BURDOCK

Blueberry Burdock is an upcoming solo piece by circus artist and director Olli Vuorinen, directed by Thom Monckton. It is a journey of a character overwhelmed by an abundance of options, losing himself and reality to a labyrinth of indecision. Expressed through a combination of visual narration, object manipulation, and comical absurdity, Blueberry Burdock dances playfully in a place of limbo.

Blueberry Burdock freely combines the techniques of physical theater, juggling and object manipulation. The work is based on Vuorinen's years of artistic research on bodily conflicts and various materials and objects.
