Hey there, time traveller!

As a writer, I believe that when words fail us, our bodies lead the way. Our physical selves take over when our minds can’t articulate the feelings we have inside. Three is beautiful example of the transcendence of movement over words — it almost feels blasphemous to try to summarize its content in language.
Based on Jean Paul Sartre’s No Exit, in which three strangers are trapped in a room together in the afterlife as punishment, the dynamics of the eponymous number are explored in this stunning show by Long Beach, California's Bossy Flyer. Fun fact: tripods are considered one of the most stable structures in nature… and one of the most unstable in politics.
Performed with strength, grace, and flawless technique by acrobats Taylor Casas, Cynthia Price and Ezra Lebank, hell may be other people, as Sartre famously said, but this show soars pretty close to heaven.
