The Ricochet Project

Smoke & Mirrors

19 - 23 Apr 2016


Weaving delicate metaphor with jaw dropping spectacle, New Mexico-based Ricochet's unique style of poetic acrobatics has taken the world by storm. Using lyrical physicality and virtuosic circus technique, Ricochet draws from rigorous backgrounds in classical and contemporary dance, aerial acrobatics, somatic practices and improvisation to explore the internal landscapes of the human experience.

Winner of the Jacksons Lane Total Theatre Award for Circus 2015 at the Edinburgh Fringe.
