DetailsThis show explores mankind's obsession with flying and thereby conquering gravity. Eight actors on flexible poles sway above the heads of the audience and sometimes even seem to touch the sky. Using the mythical character of Daedalus as the starting point to generate startling imagery. The performance explores flight and the margins around the concept of human flight, including the tensions between floating and falling, freedom and danger, myth and reality. Icarus will also make a spectacular appearance, personifying the human urge to push things past their limit.
