Falling Up has been touring across the UK and Europe in 2012 and 2013.
A physical tale of 4 women and what makes them who they are. There is no such thing as a perfect body, but each one is extraordinary. From the UK’s premier all female street theatre company, using acrobatics, dance and humour, Falling Up celebrates the beautiful reality of every body.
A medium scale acrobatic theatre production designed for audiences on the street, in parks and squares or any other public space. Pick a character and follow her story, from solo performance to beautiful finale, as she explores her weaknesses and her amazing strengths.
The audience will move around the perimeter of the performance space, beginning in four groups each following one performer. As the characters meet so the four audiences come together into one crowd, watching one story.
Falling Up is for audience up to 600 and requires a performance space of at least 10mx10m with 10m clear head room. The company provides all the required staging.
The performance is approximately 40mins in length and can be performed twice per day.
