A worldwide sensation, Bodies in Urban Spaces has toured to Paris, Vienna, Moscow, Philadephia, Montreau and Seoul - now catch it for two days only in Bangor!

Twenty performers including free runners, gymnasts, climbers, martial artists and dancers are temporarily arranged en route - incredibly squeezed, balanced and rearranged amongst Bangor's architecture.

Experience the city in a way that it will never be experienced again!

Bodies in Urban Spaces’ is a travelling performance which leads you through unseen and re-discovered spaces in your urban surroundings.
