Tight wire is a constant work of imperfection. Brin explores this world on his tight wire through his different qualities of movement and acrobatic skills. Many of Brin's inspirations have come from other artists and musicians, and their capability of staying in full control of themselves while also knowing how to let go and find a freedom in their work. This is the perfection of imperfection for him; A moment that is controlled by our passion for our work. Many of Brin's inspiration's have also come from different dance companies, like Netherlands Dance Theater, Hofesh Shechter Company, Batsheva Dance Company, and Akram Khan Company. Brin see's his work as a form of dance, while he enjoys adding an obstacle of risk and danger to everything he does.
THE WAY IT IS

BY CIRQUE ELOIZE
L'ECOLE NATIONALE DE CIRQUE
There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt
or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.
