How well connected are you? It’s rare these days not to ‘log in’ at every opportunity: at the breakfast table, on nights out with friends, even in bed. But when and how do we separate ourselves from the virtual chaos surrounding us?

Joli Vyann’s new show explores our obsessive dependence on technology, using superb acrobatic skills and athletic dance to ask whether our lives are ‘in’ or ‘out’ of balance.

Former stunt man and circus artist Jan Patzke and ex-gymnast and dancer Olivia Quayle created Joli Vyann in 2012. Previous shows have premiered at the National Theatre’s Watch This Space festival and at LIMF. Award-winning director and dance-maker Jonathan Lunn’s credits include choreography for Richard Curtis’ movie Love Actually, and Anthony Minghella’s Truly, Madly, Deeply.

Imbalance was a popular and critical hit at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe, in the words of Fest magazine, the performers ‘crackle with chemistry, a dance outfit for our times which looks set to soar’.

"Joli Vyann pushes aside the boundaries between acrobatics and dance with a graceful and elegant show"

The Guardian

"Patzke and Quayle bring a compelling physicality that comes not only from technique but also an impressive resonance as a duo"
