"GYN♀IDES – CIRCUS FEMALE INTELLIGENTSIA - in a fictive laboratorial universe, between times, a chorus of women with hyper natural bodies and futuristic technological devices, are on a quest for freedom. Poking with a smile at the nature of femininity, GYN♀IDES is an all girl power act, a mixture of poetry, acrobatic virtuosity, a gentle riot, an ode to the power of women. Featuring 6 elite international circus artists, the show explores new forms of artistic expression in circus art through the use of motion capture technology, enabling performers to interactively control the sounds by means of their own body." - cirkusperspektiv.se
