Leading wheel acrobats, Acrojou, present their first full length show, Wake.
Wake is a dark, humorous and uplifting study of one man’s DIY relationship with his own existence: love, laughter, good manners, snow, grief, death, home operations, wheels and waltzing. A poetic joy ride through a sculptural and filmic landscape, it’s difficult to explain and best seen in the flesh.
In an hour of visceral and fast moving storytelling, Wake features the stunning physicality of German and Cyr wheels, strikingly choreographed acrobatics, and the absorbing visuals for which Acrojou are becoming renowned.
Join this celebration of life lived well. Come and enjoy our Wake.
