A live aerial theatre performance exploring the reality of being tied into the routine of urban life in a metropolis, and how using music, dance and your imagination can help you rise above the daily grind. While there are aspects that relate to my home town Bogota-Colombia specifically I believe the underlying theme of claustrophobia and the how to breaking free is universal.
