Ten acrobats take us on a stirring journey of what it means to be human, and of how our bodies, our connections, and our aspirations all form part of who we are.

Exploring the physical limits of their bodies as they are pushed to the extreme they question how much we can take as humans. How much weight can we carry? Who can we trust to support our load? They lead us to reflect on our lives, our loved ones, the burdens we carry and the physical and emotional strength it takes to overcome them.

With incredible strength and integrity they connect each moment seamlessly with the next in a thrilling and heartstopping performance. Glimpse their humanity as they find redemptive power in strength and celebrate what it means to be fiercely human. Not to be missed!

Duration: 1 hour 10mins

“Brilliant, beguiling and so cool.”

Director/CEO
