He Who Falls

He Who Falls at the Barbican - 3 to 6 February

From 03/02/2016 at 19:45 to 06/02/2016 at 21:45

Six performers appear to defy the laws of gravity, responding with strength and grace to maintain balance onboard a constantly shifting platform.

When an imposing, suspended, podium begins to spin, pivot, swing and elevate, the only way to withstand its forces is through agile movement. Faced by such instability, bodies lean, climb, hang and fall, coming together and then apart, in this perilous dance of survival.

A French artist equally dedicated to the circus arts and contemporary dance, Yoann Bourgeois has long been fascinated by ideas of weightlessness and the physics of suspension. For this ingenious show, he challenges performers from both disciplines to meet the physical demands of his intriguing staging, each scenario choreographed to rousing tracks from opera aria, ‘Casta Diva’, to Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way.’
