More about the Optraken show
Optraken is taken from the Norwegian word opträker which means a rapid movement as the leg retracts in order to allow the body to jump in a controlled manner, allowing the person to avoid an involuntary lift off at the passage of a precipice. The circus company are therefore confronting the unknown and otherwise uncontrollable events in a manner that is controlled, organised and calm. This show will see these acrobats test their resilience as humans in a battle with a technological enemy. On a set that is out to trap them, their job is to escape and survive. Optraken will be a daring show like no other, leaving you in awe at the skill and prowess of these daredevils.
