Using the minimalist environment of a trapeze, a rope, two chairs and a light, Smoke and Mirrors delivers an honest, fresh acrobatic perspective to the themes of isolation, oppression, yearning and hope.
Weaving delicate metaphor with jaw dropping spectacle, Ricochet's unique style of poetic acrobatics has taken the world by storm.
