Six performers appear to defy the laws of gravity as the ground on which they stand whirls, swings and elevates beneath them. Bodies lean, hang, come together and break apart, responding to the imposing, shifting force with paradoxical strength and beauty. Through a striking union of circus and physical theatre, celebrated acrobat Yoann Bourgeois challenges performers to a perilous dance of survival, set to a spine-tingling soundtrack.

★★★★ "Genius"

- EVENING STANDARD (UK)

"Yoann Bourgeois creates performances that are exquisite, with an intense poetry, and impossible to forget"
