Rapid Eye | The Moon Illusion

Rapid Eye | The Moon Illusion


In _The Moon Illusion_, contemporary circus company Rapid Eye unfolds a fantastical universe of visual, musical magic and infectious playfulness.

The jugglers Samuel Gustavsson and Petter Wadsten, two of Scandinavia’s most significant modern circus artists, play teasingly with the idea of optical illusions. They are supported by exceptional electronica-musician Bjørn Svin’s seducing, extraordinary beats. When Gustavsson and Wadsten with playful ease perform their acrobatic tricks, a subtle and humorous poetry emerges – it seems as if they were born to be on that stage together.

Based at Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Riley Theatre is Yorkshire’s largest dedicated dance house. See contemporary performances from up and coming choreographers and acclaimed dance companies right here in Leeds.
