The heart beats over 100,000 times per day, it’s in control of many of our emotions. It not only responds to emotion, but the signals generated by its rhythmic activity actually play a major part in determining the quality of our emotional experience from moment to moment.
Circus Artist Marianna Joslin was born with Tetralogy of Fallot, a rare heart condition which went undiagnosed for six years. “Tetra” meaning four, four defects, four chambers. Transformed, twisted, transplanted, cut open and sewn back together. How does such an experience shape one’s life? This is an exploration of the heart, through circus.
