Experience a true circus show that celebrates juggling and running. Two jugglers find themselves bound by the rules of treadmills as a musician conducts them through a series of games and experiments.
Running is an incredibly effective form of human movement. Have you ever wondered how many muscles are involved in running, or how many nerve pathways between the head and the legs are used in each jump? How much bodily coordination is involved in something that seems to happen so automatically? Juggling is a similar phenomenon. RUNNERS was created to celebrate the evolution of human walking and throwing in a culture that is moving less and less. This circus show combines great juggling, amazing objects and incredible sounds. Let's have fun together!
