About the artwork

In June 2022, the Metro Tunnel Creative Program commissioned photographer Theresa Harrison to document the creation of a new work, Momentum by Women’s Circus. Momentum is a public, site-specific circus performance which invites the audience to take a journey, experiencing moments of connectedness, change and possibility.
