"A treasure house of inventiveness and superbly managed surprises"

ScèneWeb

In Optraken five fantastic acrobats pit themselves against a hostile environment. Unstable ground disappears underfoot, walls wobble, ceilings collapse, dangers come from every side.

Forget elegant tumbling and spangly tights – this wonderfully inventive and original piece of acrobatic theatre is a battle in which every movement matters for survival. It’s spectacular, impressive, unpredictable and enormous fun.

All graduates of France’s famous national circus school at Rosny sous Bois, Galactik Ensemble’s members have also worked with star contemporary circus creators Aurélien Bory, Mathurin Bolze and Yoann Bourgeois.

Following extensive touring in Europe and two sold-out seasons in Paris, Optraken makes its UK debut. Thrills and spills guaranteed. Book early!
