The walls of the iconic Tobacco Factory will be transformed into an immersive, multi-dimensional spectacle on Sunday, October 22nd as part of Circus City. Substratum is a special new show which combines acrobatic dance for vertical surfaces with projection mapped visuals.

Tickets for this unique outdoor event are free and available HERE (limited to two per person). 

Supported by Circus City and Arts Council England, Substratum is a collaboration between Full Tilt Aerial Theatre and creative technologists Limbic Cinema, performed by an international cast and produced by Rowan Fae, with an original composition by Ahmet Kenan Bilgic and Serkan Emre Ciftci.

Performers will move between worlds walking, leaping and flying off the walls, while the surface of the building is transformed between element states: earth, water, light, and air. Hypnotic and arresting by turns, this is a performance that explores boundaries; between bodies and bricks, between gravity and technology, between certainty and impossibility.
