Acrojou is Auditioning for its Brand New Creation: Vagabond Matter

Acrojou is auditioning for its brand new creation: Vagabond Matter.
Exploring the snowballing of scientific knowledge, and its effect on our perceived reality, Vagabond Matter will be joyride through current scientific understanding, told through contemporary circus and cinematic, sci-fi-inspired design.

Vagabond Matter aims to inspire a sense of awe at the unseen worlds that surround us, under our feet, inside our bodies, and above our heads. Drawing on Cosmology and Theoretical Physics, a cast of five performers will work in symbiosis to challenge the physical world, corrupting space and logic in a visceral and dynamic exploration of scientific themes.
