This internationally acclaimed Australian troupe fuses theater, dance and circus, performing in mid-air perched atop 5-meter-high flexible poles—“Like living statues soaring between heaven and earth, their heads in the sky, hearts close to the sun, producing brilliantly eclectic images that pay tribute to Michelangelo, Mary Poppins, and Magritte” (Nord Éclair, France). Don’t miss Strange Fruit’s performance of Swoon!, their dizzy, daring look at love, set to a soundtrack that romps from Mozart to swing.
