A wall, with its graffiti and its secrets, alternates as a playground and a refuge from the world for five characters
The pivotal one-hour production was the first convincingly Theatre-of-Acrobatic-Movement production. Mur-Mur (The Wall) speaks of the friendships among 2 teenage couples and a pesky and incorrigible younger brother. With humor and sheer innocence, these 5 characters are swept up in an air-bound acrobatic ballet. Their flirting, teasing and fearlessness become a moving and scintillating reflection of a very special time in life, a world of young love and discovery.
Dialogue is kept to a bare minimum, leaving way to soaring and explosive gymnastics. Telling of quarrels, shared schemes and stolen kisses, the acrobatic choreography allows the performers to unleash their energy in exploring the exuberant eloquence of movement.
