Six aerialists and dancers combine their rich visual language with music, film projection and contemporary news commentary in this touching and evocative new production.

Performed on a 6m climbing www.buydiazepamtop.com wall, RITES OF WAR tells the stories of two soldiers serving in wars 100 years and over 3000 miles apart: the Belgian battlefields of the Great War and the streets of present day Kabul.

For over a decade, Lindsey Butcher’s company Gravity & Levity has been at the forefront of aerial dance in the UK. For this new production, the company has collaborated with acclaimed director / choreographer Darshan Singh Bhuller and longtime BBC foreign correspondent David Loyn to unearth first-hand stories and portray intimate images of endurance and hope.
