I Stared at Empty Space and it Beckoned
By: Zip Zap Circus
We seldom consider the urban metropolis as a playground; most of us perceive it as a landscape of constructed formality. It is a place of business, a place where the majority of the work is done by people who live outside of it. The City is a place that people leave from on holiday; it is not the destination that they journey to.
I Stared at Empty Space and it Beckoned presents an alternative by revealing the potential of the concrete jungle as a place where space itself is the ringmaster of adventure. This is a collaboration by aerial artists, acrobats, stuntmen and dancers.
