Eight strangers find themselves in a room with no exit. They are isolated from the world in a bunker where supplies are scarce. In the absence of enough, the new arrivals see themselves in a different light: vindictive and kind, desperate and hopeful. With no allies but each other, 8 disparate personalities vie for survival, connection, and a way out.
“The Way Out” is 90 minutes of heart-stopping acrobatics, aerial, theater and dance. It is a truly contemporary form of storytelling, using the raw physicality of the performers, video projection, the choreography of Elizabeth Rose and artistic direction of Terry Crane. “The Way Out” spotlights a small company of 8 acrobats with their hearts on their sleeves and their calluses worn smooth.
Featuring performances by:
Tanya Brno, Marta Brown, Arne Bystrom, Emma Curtiss, Joselynn Engstrom, Tyler Ferraro, Elizabeth Rose, Jonathan Rose
