Flying was a rich blend of visual and insightful theatre and high calibre, high energy dancing. The audience entered a dangerously seductive world of illusion trapped amidst the high rise world of towers and steel.

Flying was performed on, in and around a stunning and surreal steel set, several storeys high and created by long term collaborator Simon Dormon of Oblique and Davey Boyle of Metalhouse. The set was inspired by the cross section of a fantastical house.
