Win two tickets to this gravity-defying show at NYUAD Arts Centre

5 lucky winners will each receive a pair of tickets

Have you ever dreamed of soaring through the sky, feeling the air rush past you as you float effortlessly above the ground? If so, you’re not alone!

In a breathtaking fusion of aerial choreography and extreme sports, ‘Corps extremes’ brings to life the desire to ‘dance’ in the air using a towering climbing wall and tightrope.

Corps extremes will run from Friday to Saturday, 12-13 May, from 7.30pm at The Red Theater of New York University Abu Dhabi’s The Arts Center.

The aerial choreography performed by adventurous athletes and artists conveys a sense of flight and a state of weightlessness and suspension, exploring a unique relationship with verticality.

Choreographer Rachid Ouramdane focuses on the fascination brought on by the notions of taking flight, being weightless, and gliding – those moments when one leaves earth such as several extreme sports allow as well as some artistic practices.

The choreography adds to the aspirations of extreme sports enthusiasts, including mountain climbers and highliners, in their quest to defy gravity, risking life and limb to probe existential questions and give meaning to their lives in a society where they feel like eternal outsiders.

Through the show, Ouramdane reveals what these larger-than-life individuals attempt to reach as they seek to escape gravity.
