Description

Aerial dance that offers the darkest hour, and questions what it means to carry or let go of another. Two bodies suspended in the limbo of loss, cradled in the surrogate limbs of rope and the temporary solace of flesh, weighed by conscience, spun by dependency, freed by mortality. This new show by Gabrielle Martin (Cirque du Soleil, Cavalia) and Jeremiah Hughes (Cirque du Soleil, Dragone, So You Think You Can Dance) combines an emotionally raw physicality with a haunting original soundscape to create a hypnotic, destabilizing narrative full of mourning, distant hope, and eerie beauty.

Spellbinding. Mesmerizing. Breathtaking. An aerial dance performance from Canada of exquisite movement, power and sensitivity that leaves you with feelings of utter awe and wonder. Five stars is not enough. An absolute must. Get tickets.

Limb(e)s is a hauntingly beautiful display of human strength that impresses with how artistic and well-crafted certain moments are. The immense trust between Martin and Hughes creates moments of intense visual power, highlighted by carefully considered lighting and the original soundscape crafted especially for the production.
