Standing High

Category: Show Related artist: Out Of Order

Standing High brings a message of hope and celebration, showing that people can overcome hardship by coming together. It addresses prominent topics of survival and interdependence in a light humorous way. This large scale show combines circus, physical theatre and dance to create an experience that is fun, beautiful and messy at times.

Standing High is about the times when everything goes wrong. Accompanied by Tipsy, the flying piano, our heroes will go through extraordinary challenges, which will result in clownish over-the-top behaviour. Viewers will be surprised and amused watching how ‘they lose it’, as their actions mirror the effects current times are having on everyone’s lives. Finding their way through chaos, our characters rely on each other to conquer any obstacle, joining in arms to miraculously save the day.

Our flying piano is a multipurpose prop serving as an instrument, an unconventional and never-seen-before aerial apparatus, and a structure that allows dramatic stunts to happen over, under and all around it.

This performance will be an experience suitable for children and adults alike, with a daring yet heart-warming narrative.
