A white climbing wall. A high wire above the stage. An ensemble of athletes and artists soar through mid-air choreography that takes dance to new heights.

Corps extrêmes is a visually stunning exploration of flight and freedom with an ensemble of athletes and artists, defying belief on a set where the mountains meet the stage.

Choreographer Rachid Ouramdane focusses on ideas of flight, states of weightlessness, and suspension – all key in extreme sports. This ambitious and captivating work brings together acrobats, flyers, a slackliner and a rock-climber.

In an aerial dance that that will leave you on the edge of your seat, the ensemble push the boundaries of trust within the group, and test their own physical strength and emotional barriers.

Featuring stunning video projection of remarkable natural landscapes alongside graceful yet spectacular physicality, Corps extrêmes reveals what motivates these larger-than-life individuals as they seek to escape gravity.
