"Dark, quietly riveting gem of aerial drama"
- The List
Limb(e)s is contemporary aerial-dance that explores the liminal space between holding onto or letting go of another. Former Cirque du Soleil artists Gabrielle Martin and Jeremiah Hughes deliver a “Dark, quietly riveting gem of aerial drama” (The List). Limb(e)s unfolds to the haunting original music of composer Nicolas Bernier in a rich visual world that earned it a Total Theatre Award nomination in Physical and Visual Theatre (2019). The result is a hypnotic, destabilizing narrative full of loss, yearning, and tragic beauty.
Originally presented live, Limb(e)s currently tours as a 40-minute cinematic adaptation in digital format.
