Studio: £8.50 (£7.50)
Production Company: Action Hero
I’m going over in a barrel. I’m leaving the cannon, hitting the ramp at 90mph and clearing ten double decker buses.
I might fall. I might break my body into several pieces, but then I’ll pick myself up, dust myself off and do it all over again.
This time, I’m going higher, further and faster. Tonight, I will attempt the impossible.
Action Hero have measured it out, done a few calculations and are confident that it could go either way. We’re going to land this thing, and we’re not stopping until every last sonofabitch in the place is cheering us on. We invite you to come along to cheer for us, pull for us, pray for us and watch us fall.
Watch Me Fall explores daredevils, our obsession with those who attempt the impossible, the futility of their attempts and their inevitable fall from grace.
Action Hero is the collaboration between Gemma Paintin and James Stenhouse. They are a Bristol-based company making performance and live art. They are Arnolfini Associate Artists and members of Residence.
