Pre-recorded audio description by VocalEyes.
Inspired by joy. Informed by truth. Sustained by hope. ON EDGE combines highly physical parkour and compelling theatre to tell a gripping story hidden in the shadows of the construction industry. A team of international collaborators, parkour athletes and performers present a visually stunning, breathtaking and entertaining piece of theatre.
Justice in Motion marries exciting choreography, theatre and parkour athletics with beauty and humour, to tell a stimulating, moving tale that asks – what does it really mean to be free?
Atop towering scaffolding, a group of men ricochet around a building site. Their routine may give a sense of purpose and security yet behind the perimeter fencing, all is not as it first appears. Told with the energy and excitement of athletic choreography on a towering parkour ‘construction site’, this is the story of how modern slavery exists under our noses, within our communities, outside our knowledge. We reveal the plight of the vulnerable and exploited, who are working in industries throughout the UK every day.
This family friendly show runs for approx. 40 minutes. Suitable for all ages but recommended for 12+
