Witness a Cirque du Soleil acrobat achieve impossible feats that will blow your mind in this twisted and spellbinding new solo show.
YOU is a show about climate change, unanimous action and all the things we have in common. The show is presented in the format of a scientific TedTalk on steroids! James flips, balances and drops from the roof while exploring topics of environmentalism, the commonness of individuality and the physics of personal relationships. Using techniques honed from decades of working with the top circus companies in the world, James brings a show which not only challenges one’s perception of what is possible with the human body but also the dexterity of the mind.
YOU was inspired by James’ 7-year-old daughter, Mika Lu Kingsford-Wong, who’s fresh perspective on life inspired James to approach scientific and humanitarian issues in whole new ways. After years of studying climate change and physics, James is impassioned to speak about these issues with this new perspective and insight. Perhaps there are answers to our greatest problems in the simple ways that a small child interprets the difference between ME and YOU .
YOU seduces and surprizes in a delicate dance between the introspective, the spectacular and the thought provoking. This one-man, acrobatic masterpiece promises to keep YOU on the edge of your seat until the final curtain falls!
