Daring feats challenge gravity when performers spin through the air before landing on thin planks, or safely in the arms of other acrobats. The Swedish troupe stretches the limitations of what a contemporary circus can be, and what a person is capable of. The production is not only about strength, precision and agility, but also trust and unity. Completely without a safety-net everyone is dependent on each other in order to succeed and to avoid falling. In classic Cirkus Cirkör manner, limitations of perspective are overturned. With energy and focus on what is possible a world of fleeing, migration and new frontiers is balanced against the artists' individual limits in terms of risk, pain, the limitations of the group and of the body. Stepping over boundaries is hard without moments of chaos and disorder, but the state of today's world demands new approaches.
