84 young men commit suicide in the UK every week. Falling Man is a live theatrical event which explores the complex factors and associated pressures that contribute to this unrelenting tragedy in the modern world today.
"Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again."
FALLING MAN, a new theatrical event created by multi- award winning team comprising of Dancer | Choreographer Dane Hurst & Composer | Film Director Tom Rowland.
'Hurst remains one of the most electric performers of his generation, as he demonstrates in his piece Falling Man (to music by Tom Rowland). The title recalls the famous photograph of a man falling from the north tower of the World Trade Center during the 11 September 2001 attacks, and Hurst’s choreography, a precipitous, spiralling, space-carving whirl of movement, is unnervingly suggestive of the image.'
