About the Show
Risky, gutsy and sometimes wild (THE SUN-HERALD)
A new work from Australia’s leading physical theatre company tells the story of an Australian family – three Aboriginal kids from a small town – and how two choose to survive when one is lost.
When Ash loses his best friend Bear to suicide, he becomes obsessed with early-20th-century circus star The Great Peters – AKA ‘Man With The Iron Neck’ – whose most famous trick saw him jump off bridges with a rope tied around his neck, and live. The Great Peters embodied both life and death, but in the end what he promises is impossible.
Based on elements of Co-Director Josh Bond’s own story, this daring and delicate show brings together Co-Director Gavin Robins, writer/actor Ursula Yovich and some of Australia’s best artists to weave together text, aerial performance, and ambitious video design.
Man With The Iron Neck is a story about embracing life, told with humour, poignancy and love.
“Legs On The Wall blasts physical theatre into a new and triumphant dimension.” THE SUN-HERALD
