THE WIRED MOON AND THE ICE CREAM FLOOR

Perched on bicycles, with tightwires strung over the lake, this gorgeous abstract circus adventure follows a cast of characters charming audiences with acrobatic feats, mesmerizing live music and perhaps (if we’re lucky enough to catch it)… the return of the moon to its rightful place.

COLLIDER
