Using parkour and slamming techniques, Edgewalkers introduces audiences to four friends hanging out in their backstreet. A newcomer turns up and stirs up their rapport. The group will be confronting the complex nature of family relationships while each individual is growing and building his/her identity. The production delves into the backstreets of our childhood where reality and mystery meet. In this refuge bits of scrap are enough to rebuild a whole new world. Edgewalkers tells stories and sheds light on personal spaces that we all share.
