aerial dance theatre

Originally Fake stands for aerial dance theatre.

Dance on the floor and in the air.

    With our performances we aim to stimulate the audience to appeal to their own thoughts, feelings and memories. To leave space to reflect on what the performance expresses to them.

    With our acts we aim to bring a more artistic touch into the commercial world,

by turning tricks into a stunning performance.

The performers are professional dancers, who lost their hearts to aerial circus and streettheatre.
