Part of CircusFest 2018

UK premiere

Breaking Point is a performance about tension.

Mainly through slack rope, Swedish circus performer Alexander Weibel Weibel explores how far things can be pushed before the inevitable happens.

With the help of the audience and a selection of everyday objects, props are built on stage then rigged in unconventional ways and tested until they break (or not).

There are no tricks, what you see is what you get. The paper is real paper, the fishing line is just fishing line, and the fire is real fire.
