Relentless Unstoppable Human Machine (RUHM)

Theatr Bryn Terfel, Pontio
Tuesday 16 January 2018 – Sunday 21 January 2018

An exclusive run of the brand new mechanically ingenious circus show from the makers of FLOWN before going on to the Roundhouse in London.

Adventure into a world of mechanical chaos, where everything has a mind of its own and connections appear in unexpected ways.

Enjoyably anarchic, punchy and exhilarating, with an ingenious interconnected set and original live score, Relentless Unstoppable Human Machine (RUHM) delves bravely into the fantastical imaginations of two neighbouring acrobats. As contraptions, fixtures and fittings come to life, our heroes begin to question their place in it all and to reassemble the components of their world.

Featuring vertical-swinging trapeze, never-ending ropes, a spinning carousel, high-wire and a very temperamental staircase, RUHM offers up a playful, humorous modernist parable about time, technology and the forces that drive us.

Developed with support from Pontio, Bangor, Roundhouse, London, Ffwrnes, Llanelli and the Arts Councils of England and Wales.
