Take a Seat: From perambulator to rocking chair, we spend a large percentage of our waking hours sitting in one chair or another.
Office chairs, high chairs, lazy-boys, car seats and seats. We've all sat in them.

In fact, sitting has become the new smoking in terms of bad health habits. Not to deter you from coming to sit and watch our show, of course.

This half-hour piece is anything but sedentary, as nine bodies collude and collide to turn the world of the chair on its head. Through skillful choreography and a rich soundtrack, Inside Out Circus and Physical Theatre brings humour and pathos to the not-so-humble seat.

From the Ground Up what strange, magical and mundane things do we do to help ourselves heal? After drenching ourselves in the muddy waters of mental illness, we are searching for new ways to lift ourselves up. Accompany us on an elemental journey as we grow upwards from a place of pain. In a world of magic and myth, we want to find real ways to breathe a little easier. From the Ground Up combines poetry and physical theatre to explore what comes after the hurting.
