“A gravity-defying spectacle” – The New York Times
“Alternately funny and poetic . . . LEO soars!” – The New York Post
From Berlin comes the "anti-gravity show," where the Circle of Eleven blends music, acrobatics, dance, and theater into a sophisticated form of entertainment that carries on the spirit of classic German variety theater at a contemporary circus level. It is not a play, or a circus act, or a film project. It is a self-contained, genre-defying performance that won the Carol Tambor Foundations “Best of Edinburgh Award” in 2011 and went on to become the hottest ticket for Spoleto 2012.
LEO explores a world where gravity has shifted and the hero must undertake a logic-defying adventure that reveals not only his dreams and desires but also his lust for life. Through a clever juxtaposition of live performance with projected film, two Leos move through identical spaces governed by opposing physical laws. It is a small but meaningful story of a man stuck in box, hoping one day to find his way out.
