Trans Port / Ripples
The sailing contemporary circus performance Ripples, played on deck, and high up in the rig and masts of a sail ship from 1935, and the art and science encounter Trans Port.
Can we create a positive climate ripple effect across the sea?
We will premiere and set sail across the Baltic Sea in 2022, from Denmark to Finland, Russia, Estonia and Sweden
After the massive success of Into the Water in 2019, we are delighted to once again set sail across oceans to inspire people to act for a more sustainable future.
Trans Port is an art and science project sailing across the Baltic Sea, inspiring people to act for a more sustainable future. We join forces with Festival Norpas (FI) and the Hawila Project to bring scientists, artists and activists onboard for a transformative experience on sustainability.
Ripples is the our new, upcoming performance that will tour the Trans Port project, and premiere in July 2022. Ripples explores the themes of cycles and the forces of nature. Our artistic crew of circus artists, dancers, actors and musicians draws new lines of the architecture of the ship, as they move on the 34 meter long and 26 meter high ship. We will research both the infinity of sustainable cycles, patterns and relations, and how definite and small we can make our existence when we cannot see ourselves as part of an ecosystem.

If action triggers action - can our art create a ripple effect for climate action that can spread across the sea?
Trans Port and Ripples will sail from harbour to harbour with Hawila, a two-masted wooden sailing ship from 1935. We set off from Denmark to harbours in Finland, Russia, Estonia and Sweden, in which we play the performance Ripples and engage in local encounters on sustainability.
Trans Port is multi-layered; it combines our performance and workshops in harbours, as well as the sailing journey with international artists and scientists in residency on board.
Trans Port and Ripples is uncompromisingly prioritising sustainability in all layers, when the forces of nature literarily help us move our stage and home around.
Want to help us get wind in our sails?
We are especially looking for partners and collaborators in Stockholm (SE), Helsinki (FI), St. Petersburg (RU) and Tallinn (EST), or nearby locations. Is that you or your friends, or do you want to get involved?
