What would happen if you found yourself inside the head of an avatar? What if that avatar was then thrust into a brutal and unforgiving game? The Roof’s intimate three dimensional sound, delivered via headphones, transports you into the body of a reluctant hero desperate to stay alive. The performers blend free running and contemporary dance in a fast paced, perilous performance in a purpose built arena.

Set within the suspended reality of a brutal and unforgiving game, this breathless mix of intimate three dimensional sound and the hair-trigger movement of free running will transport you into the body of a reluctant hero, desperate to stay alive.
