ON EDGE

with No Comments

Synopsis

A new physical theatre production previewed last summer, and our very first venture into Outdoor Arts!

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

We are developing 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, 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, which then, by night, transforms into a theatre stage for ON EDGE.

We have been commissioned by Without Walls to perform at various festivals this summer (details below).
