You’ll be at the heart of the action right from the start in this nail-biting spectacle from acrobat/wire-walker Jonathan Guichard.
With a specially created new piece of circus equipment, the 3D
, he brings thrills up-close as you have never before experienced. Constructed like a giant archer's longbow, the curved wooden board and metallic ’string’ rocks, rolls and pivots in three dimensions at the will of its daring rider, producing an ever-changing musical soundscape that creates tension, awe and astonishment.
Inspired by innovative compatriots and contemporaries like Aurélien Bory, Mathurin Bolze and Yoann Bourgeois in whose groundbreaking shows he has appeared at the Barbican and Southbank Centre for LIMF, Jonathan Guichard has produced a thrilling piece of visual theatre which plays with space and form, physical virtuosity and sound. For this show, Jonathan has also worked with Etienne Manceau, whose extraordinary Vu
was a hit at Shoreditch Town Hall as part of LIMF’18.
Original and exhilarating, a treat for all ages.

"We loved this absolutely original show"
"In 3 dimensions and in 3 directions, 3D is in itself a mini stage exploring a playful relationship to matter, space, sound and each other"
