LEO (The Anti-Gravity Show) | NCSU Campus: Titmus Theatre | Stage | Indy Week


LEO (The Anti-Gravity Show)

When: March 18-23 2014

A man in an open-sided room walks on his hands—right up a sheer wall. Later, he sticks to the wall like a fairgoer in The Gravitron, then makes swimming motions until he melts to the floor—or is that the ceiling? Climbing like Spider-Man, he draws a kitchen parlor scene and then sits down in a chalk chair. By the time he starts leaping from plane to plane, we have no clue which way is up. The man is performing LEO (the Anti-Gravity Show), a funny and perception-bending piece of theater that comes to NCSU Center Stage after winning multiple awards at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Directed by Montreal's Daniel Briére and based on an original idea by Tobias Wegner, LEO blends live performance with tricky video projections to create a theatrical puzzle-box where gravity works in capricious ways. With a magic-show appeal and a run time of just over an hour, LEO should be deranging fun for the whole family. Through March 23. —Brian Howe
