ON EDGE

with 3 Comments

Synopsis

A new physical theatre production, an exciting collaboration between parkour and theatre, and our very first venture into Outdoor Arts!

Inspired by joy. Informed by truth. Sustained by hope.

ON EDGE is a brand-new, breath-taking, visually stunning and highly engaging piece, that dynamically blends theatre and parkour in exciting and inspiring new ways. In ON EDGE we explore issues of modern slavery within the construction industry, and tell a compelling story through parkour, theatre, video, original soundtrack and an impressive set structure.

Our international collaborators include the Inspire Parkour Community, acclaimed Polish director Pawel Szkotak from Teatr Biuro Podróży, Chris Evans from Gecko Theatre, and a cast of leading international parkour athletes and physical theatre performers.

Together we are not only working on a piece of physical theatre, but also a much wider concept which will tour the UK and Europe as 'THE FREEDOM TOUR'. Throughout the day a parkour park will be available for local communities to play on, alongside and very similar to the scaffolding structure that is the theatre stage for ON EDGE.

ON EDGE is supported by Without Walls, and commissioned by Brighton Festival and Out There Festival of International Street Arts and Circus.
