Joli Vyann

Following their success at the Edinburgh Festival and sold-out performances at
Sadler’s Wells as part of The London International Mime Festival, the acclaimed
circus, dance company Joli Vyann take their new show Imbalance on tour.

“Playfully fresh and thought-provoking”  – The Times

“lyrical acro-balance, compellingly laced with gentle irony and a darker side” – The Stage

“Joli Vyann pushes aside the boundaries between acrobatics and dance
with a graceful and elegant show”  – Lyn Gardner- The Guardian

Ex-stuntman Jan Patzke and ex-gymnast Olivia Quayle are Joli Vyann. This dynamic duo
use exciting hand-to-hand acrobatics and dance to explore contemporary issues. See Jan
throw Olivia into the air with ease and Olivia perform balances which seem gravity defying.
Joli Vyann have created Imbalance with internationally acclaimed choreographer Jonathan Lunn.

Imbalance explores our obsessive dependence with technology, asking whether our lives
are ‘in’ or ‘out’ of balance? It is rare nowadays not to ‘log in’ at every opportunity –
the breakfast table, nights out with friends, even in bed! How well connected are you?
When and how do we separate ourselves from the virtual chaos surrounding us?
