“The performance is as bizarre as the old circus act upon which it is based, making one feel instantly catapulted into a topsy-turvy Lewis Caroll-esque world, full of strange characters and weird feats. Odd, quirky and utterly captivating, this is a circus act of dazzling power.” (The Upcoming)

Enchanted by the beauty of weightlessness and the dream of flying, Finnish artists Sanja and Elice have revived the old and forgotten circus art of hair hanging. Dreamlike, the two women float upwards, magically suspended only by their hair. As their extraordinary, graceful aerial duet begins, poetry and wonder combine to magical effect. Never nostalgic, Capilotractées is offbeat, yet feminine and sensual, taking hair – the sacred emblem of femininity – and playing with the powerful emotions it arouses in us all.
