The Fig Tree Waltzes is a moving exploration of indecision, desperation and tenacity in the face of choice. Devised and performed by Acrobatic Conundrum, this work features their signature style of virtuosic athleticism infused with relatable humanity. In a world where stakes are high and time is running out, The Fig Tree Waltzes is a paean to the human drive to keep playing against overwhelming odds.
