Contemporary circus company “Taigi Cirkas” was formed in 2016 in Vilnius, Lithuania. It’s name can be loosely translated from Lithuanian as “But it’s circus” – meaning that it is needless of an explanation. The core of the company consists of Konstantin and Elena Kosovec. Their main purpose is to tell honest stories emerging from their personal and collective experiences by using circus disciplines as a medium to share and connect.

“Up to this Point” is a result of a collaboration between Konstantin Kosovec from Lithuania and Aleksey Smolov, a Latvian circus artist. The performance explores the changes within the body and the mind when the artists face great challenges. How do the changes in the body affect the mental state? And how do the changes in the mind appear on the body?
