Legs on the Wall - On the Case

Legs on the Wall - On the Case From Australia

World Premiere - A Festival Melbourne2006 Commission.

'Physical Theatre of the highest calibre' The Age

Welcome to On the Case – a game for four players. A woman falls through the sky. Did she jump? Was she pushed? Should she PLAY or QUIT? The chase is on to snatch back what is rightfully hers - her stolen heart. Her objective? Find the case, retrieve the heart and win the game.

Performed high on the north wall of NGV International overlooking the Arts Centre Forecourt, this aerial thriller could only be the work of Legs on the Wall, Australia's premier physical theatre company. Famous for stunning choreography at dizzying heights, the artists of Legs on the Wall transform the Gallery into a vertical stage as they fly, cartwheel and spin through the air; bouncing against dazzling animated cartoon projections by Dave Jones. With breath-taking imagery and daring, acrobatic movement directed by Debra Batton and Mark Murphy, this brilliantly innovative show is a game of chance with altitude.
