Audience Feedback

Audience responses at Birmingham's BE Festival 2018:

"Fantastic show"

"I could watch this athlete of a man all day. I have seen a lot of circus - I have rarely been as engrossed in a man’s relationship with physical objects, gravity and his body"

"Simple, beautiful, moving depiction of endeavor - allows space to reflect and takes audience to a different dimension"

"Fabulous music"

"Fundamental: balance and off-balance. Push and pull. Puts things in perspective"

"A struggle"

"Heartfelt and high stakes, I found this beautiful"

Audience responses to the world premiere at Surface Gallery Nottingham 2017:

"It's a different way of being an audience"

"I really responded to the sensory element, whether it was the pain or the slamming of the big planks of wood and I liked the choice of each object a lot"

"It's nice to have a bit of danger"

"I thought it was a great journey, very challenging"

"Very intense and utterly engrossing and completely forgot about anything to do with disability, just became completely engrossed in the story"

"I was particularly excited by like the ending, where he found this amazing moment of balance and it just seemed like how could he possibly have achieved that"

"I took from it struggles, I took from it balance and a lot more than I thought when I came in"

"I thought the art was an interesting backdrop, because it took me a bit of time to realise what was going on with the art - it's like a punctuation mark almost, to think about each individual stage and the visual representation of the art. It was very beautiful all round. It was very beautiful. It was very challenging as a performance. I wouldn't say I was out of my comfort zone because I didn't have to do anything. It was just actually really intriguing and lovely. I just loved it! More please. Thank you"
