Simultaneously raw, frantic and delicate, seven skilled acrobats push their physical limits without reserve. Supported by driving live percussion, immersed in every moment, A Simple Space evokes real responses in audiences, visceral rather than cerebral.
There’s no fine-tuning of performance with makeup, lighting and contrived theatrical overlay. Sitting close to a stripped back stage, the audience feel the heat, see the sweat and hear every breath.
Armed with nothing more than brute strength and cat-like agility the acrobats break down their usual guards, introducing the reality of failure and weakness. With nothing left to hide behind, personal narratives shine through. This honesty is the essence of A Simple Space.
A multi-award winning show, that has captivated sold-out audiences around the world.
Featuring Lachlan Binns, Jascha Boyce, Rhiannon Cave-Walker, Jacob Randell, Martin Schreiber, Daniel Liddiard, Triton Tunis-Mitchell and Elliot Zoerner
