In the world of Portmanteau, fragility balances on a tightrope walker’s wire and in the space between a juggler’s juggling balls. Bodies slide under the intriguing images projected on a large screen using vintage overhead projectors. For a frozen moment in time, the artists’ movements slip between those shown on the projectors. At the frontier between circus and the visual arts, this poetic, startling world expresses its nostalgic grace to the soundtrack of the warm tones of a double bass.
