On Edge at Riverside Bedford

Sunday 14 July 2019

Justice in Motion and the Inspire Parkour Community marry exciting choreography, theatre and parkour athletics with beauty and humour, to tell a stimulating, moving tale that asks – what does it really mean to be free?

Atop towering scaffolding, a group of men ricochet around a building site. Their routine may give a sense of purpose and security yet behind the perimeter fencing, all is not as it first appears.

Told with the energy and excitement of athletic choreography on a vertiginous parkour ‘construction site’, this is the story of how modern slavery exists under our noses, within our communities, outside our knowledge. We reveal the plight of the vulnerable and exploited, who are working in industries throughout the UK every day.

On Edge involves international collaborators, parkour athletes and performers. Join us before the show to explore the sensational freedom of moving around the parkour construction site.

Come and play!

Free event

ON EDGE is supported by Without Walls and commissioned by Brighton Festival and Out There Festival of International Street Arts and Circus.
