Atlas

Atlas is a family-friendly mix of modern circus, animation and architecture that combines Ilona Jäntti’s aerial acrobatics with Tuula Jeker’s projections. The suprising performance paints a picture about understanding and perceiving the world: how directions and scales change when some element is in an unexpected position. At the same time, Atlas is a story about fleeting yet meaningful encounters from the far reaches of space to the depths of the seas.

With extensive work experience in the fields of circus, dance and theatre both in Finland and abroad, Jäntti has been a resident artist at V&A Museum of Childhood in London and at Helsinki City Winter Garden.  She forms the Ilmatila collective together with architect and animator Tuula Jeker.
