About this event

A pause; a failure of a heart's action; unconsciousness... From the winners of the 2017 FRINGE WORLD Circus Award, Syncope explores the anatomy and physiology of the human body through an intriguing cocktail of aerials, acrobatics and performance art. How do we know that we're awake? How do emotions affect our body? A visceral experience that is as thought-provoking as it is heart-stopping.

"A unique aesthetic that will keep you wanting more...beautifully visual" The Australia Times
