Drifting Apart

Drifting Apart by Heidi Capitaine

A brand new circus show from emerging circus company Collectif and then... fusing contemporary movement with inventive aerial skills on ropes, floor acrobatics and Cyr wheel.   Inspired by an extract from Jonathan Safran Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, in which the islands of New York drift apart and separate friends, families and lovers, the show explores what happens when communication reaches breaking point.

Possibly my favorite art piece ever created. It's perfection to me and sometimes I dream about it: “A work by Felix Gonzalez-Torres known as “Perfect Lovers” The work shows two wall clocks set to the same exact time. The clocks are representing the changing relationships we have in life. We may start in perfect precision with someone or something, but none of us are perfect, we start to minutely drift away from our starting point in time just like two clocks that slowly grow seconds apart."
