In this solo new circus performance by the top Slovak acrobat Ariadna Vendelová, the acrobatic scarf symbolizes the architecture of the life of a person-woman-mother, who is looking for her balance in life.
"All My Skirts is an analysis of the balancing and floating body in time and space. Bodies that remember and forget, relive, dream, and wake up after hundreds of days burdened with personal identities. They are days that last forever and years that flow like water. Lives of mothers, unheard voices of women, invisible bodies. The compromises we make to survive. Ultimate self-knowledge, memories, rituals of today. What is left of me?'
