Our devices know more about us than we do. The iPhone has 26 different sensors to collect data. Google home is always listening, your webcam always watching, and your smart watch…? The cloud is probably tracking your heart rate, sweat, brain activity, muscle tension, geo-location, and more.

Flipside Circus and Counterpilot are collaborating to create Statum a new physical performance work based on a whimsical series of techno-circus experiments. Live biometric data will be combined with the virtuosity of acrobatic bodies to present a new kind of circus spectacle.

Statum brings the audience inside the action in a totally new way. Live data visualisations and responsive sound design will bring us even closer, dissecting the detail of a moment with digital curiosity.
