Having weathered the long pandemic pause, we’re now back in action, and with caution in tow.
This isn’t a show of entertainment. It’s not a public performance of pain nor is it a spectacle of sensation. This very special gathering is designed to facilitate safely-guided, visually-visceral hook suspensions in a variety of forms; executed with intention in this immensely important time in history and the world we’re currently facing.
We’re all finding our way through the wake of a triple year running global pandemic; compounded with many other conflicts, struggles & intense recent & ongoing challenges.
In this unprecedented, rapidly-changing social, political & polarized landscape, we have become angry, frustrated, afraid & unsure; stretched thin in the face of an unclear future.
Right now, more than ever before, it’s time that we transcend our differences, turn our backs to the political lies, cancel culture and media smoke screens. Let’s come together and lift both ourselves and each other up off the ground. Let’s show love to ourselves, support each other and fill our cups through ceremonial body suspension: utilizing hooks as tools to empower, grow & heal. To look inward and push boundaries, face ourselves & take on inner demons; united together as the courageous warriors of the modern world.
