Improvised extreme physicality taking both performers and audiences to the very edge.

Legs On The Wall brings together five physical theatre practitioners to perform a completely improvised fugue of short works. Witness this complex collaboration as they put their trust and life in each other’s hands in a work that examines just how far you can go without guidelines. A comment on our struggles dealing with and processing a constantly shifting world. How far can you push till you reach the tipping point? Each improvised performance is unique and different to the one before it.  

Tipping Point has no age restrictions, some adult themes may be explored, please use your discretion.

Sat 17 Sept: 11.45am | 2pm | 5.45pm
Sun 18 Sept: 1.15pm | 3.15pm

Gripping, confronting physical theatre.
The Conversation

Legs On The Wall

Founded in Sydney’s Inner West in 1984, Legs On The Wall is a diverse and vibrant physical theatre company which tours nationally and internationally. The Legs team create and present compelling original works, always engaging heightened physicality and finding new ways to kick against gravity. Their latest production THAW is an iconic example of the company’s performative tackling of the current climate crisis, demonstrating how the company prioritises telling socially and culturally relevant and thought-provoking stories through physical language; pushing the boundaries of expectation. Together with its performance program, Legs On The Wall cultivates collaborations, residencies, mentorships and skills training with artists, and arts organisations in the physical theatre and wider creative industries, as well as a longstanding education partnership with the National Aboriginal Islander Skills Development Association. Notwithstanding the setbacks of recent years, LOTW has emerged in a position of strength, with a renewed team, renewed focus and some significant early achievements as a result of our resilient pandemic response.
