A cross-roads, a juncture, a meeting point – PaperDolls’ fantastical glimpse of the soul revealed through play, ideas, vision and music. ‘Soul’ emerges through interruptions of consciousness and in synchronous moments when we are open to the abundance of the universe. It bubbles up from the unknown, sometimes coaxed, sometimes sudden, but a constant nonetheless. Feelings of connectivity are fundamental here. Those who are witness to the Soul Juncture are lulled into a calm and meditative space through the mesmeric elements of sound and movement of visuals. Here, we offer a space of openness and feelings of connectivity to evoke sensations of ‘soulness’.
What is the soul? How can we glimpse the invisible, make tangible the intangible, artistically express the essence of what it is to be alive? A festival of dancers, aerialists, visual artists, filmmakers, theatre practitioners, video artists and musicians have risen to this challenge, responding to the concept of the soul by creating an original piece of work specifically for this event.
PaperDolls created Soul Juncture, a theatrical trio hoop piece intertwining three to portray a glimpse of "Soul". A exploratory response to Floating World Productions invitation to answer this challenge through our aerial discipline.
