Skipping Ropes

About:

Skipping ropes is an act performed by most of the troupe members.  It features two solo artists (originally one) who are central to the scene.  This act fits with the childhood games theme (Diabolos, Marelle, etc.). There is also a war aspect to the act.  In the middle of the performance, helicopter sounds are heard and spotlights.  The performers scatter from the scene.  They rejoin and timidly reenter when things become “safe” again.
