You are about to witness the ascent of a high-flying tightrope walker!
In perfect equilibrium, the emptiness grows beneath her feet. Perched in the sky, she takes her time, has fun, plays with the audience, revels in this moment of immense freedom, and realizes she never wants to come down...
Accompanied by live music, each of her steps is rhythmic. Imbued with strength and fragility, the music and the artist progress together. Each stumble is righted by the voice, each movement is accentuated by musical punctuation.
Respire [Breathe] is a necessary burst of air, an optimistic note, the courage to always keep moving forward...
