Something to Hold
Circus, Aerial, Theatre
With storms on every horizon, an astronomer desperately scours the sky for answers, but what he finds is more than he bargained for.
Destined to run in circles for eternity, one of a pair of celestial sisters is frustrated and claustrophobic, so when a bridge to another life presents itself, she takes the chance to jump. Chaos ensues as all their worlds collide and they become entangled, propelled and lifted to new heights. But how will they find their feet and what demons are there to be faced?
A beautiful tale spun on a thrilling new aerial sculpture by Pif-Paf, a transforming world of action, metal and rope.
