I held a seasonal contract on an Australian cruise ship, whose main cruise was a week long circuit. I became interested in the overlapping cycles the crew were subjected to; the cyclic motion of the waves, the repetition of tasks, and the repetition of the cruise. None seemed more affected than the cirque performers, who spent hours in additional cycles of their own, as they stretched, juggled, and spun away the hours until their return home. These movements are a reflection of those cycles and cirque disciplines.

Dedication note

These pieces were inspired by Francisco, Diego, Leilisha, and Leo, and encouraged by Judith. May you never be defeated.
