With her body, a tightwire and a physical composition that draws on the Japanese rope art of Shibari, Hanna Moisala’s WireDo tells a mesmerizing story of stepping out to the unknown.
With its three-dimensional view, WireDo explores the inner balance of human behaviour with the question "what happens to the body when it chooses to surrender and be manipulated?"
Daring tightwire stunts combined with Moisala’s captivating presence and skilled rope manipulation offer an unprecedented spectacle.

PRESS + REVIEWS
"WireDo is mysterious, skilled, subtly erotic and so very graceful. The sold-out audience was entranced - you could have heard a pin drop" - Adrian Berry, Artistic Director, Jacksons Lane
"An exquisite piece of contemporary dance circus. Tightwire is a discipline not often seen outside of large scale commercial circuses. So it is a wonderful treat to see this piece of very traditional circus equipment reconfigured, explored and presented in a contemporary theatrical way" - BroadwayBaby - *****
"WireDo is a finely balanced piece of work that contains beauty and tranquility in a yin yang of control." - The Circus Diaries
