Anchored In Air is an aerial theatre show, using a custom designed set with an integrated trio of disabled and non-disabled performers. Using aerial, dance and spoken text the trio explore themes of isolation, collaboration, struggle and rewards with humour, live double bass and drumkit.
Incorporating unusual counter-weighting systems that we have created within an easy to assemble scaffold structure, aerial harness and a flying wheelchair, we are using our set as a metaphor for the ever changing and difficult world we live in. Addressing themes of connection and reciprocity, we invite the audience to consider how they navigate the world, and how their experience differs to other peoples. This show is a reminder of how we must work together and take responsibility for others to live in an integrated and equal society.
