Brave Space is the building of a blanket fort, sneaking under a hoopskirt, an impulsive congregation in the tiniest of tents. Starting as a puddle of fabric on the floor, it grows to encompass a world of wondrous circus. Intimate and low tech, Brave Space invites the audience to sit nose-to-nose with an all-female cast of bold acrobats to build the world we want to live in, even for only a few shared moments.
Inspired by the idea of creating community in trying times, Brave Space creates a world of wonders that includes juggling, cyr wheel, duo trapeze, a rope act like no other and awe-inspiring feats of balance and strength. Brave Space requires 100% trust between the performers and the audience as together you will physically construct the show keep the artists aloft. Limited to 100 people, participants must sit on the floor, stand up and walk around for the duration.
